IS-NiTRO-CAPTURE DEMONSTRATiON


ASSEMbler shows off his IS-NITRO-CAPTURE. If you ever wondered what the video quality was like you'll get a brief look at the hardware's internal up-scaling here. He also showed the internals of the unit in a previous video. If you're interested in the device, one of these would apparently run you around $3000, and i imagine you'd need a good contact to even find one considering not many dev studios owned the device in the first place.

Oooooh, the awesomeness! drooling Too bad it's so rare and expensive. Makes you wonder why nobody's making this on commercial scale. I can't imagine it'd be THAT hard for someone with some electronics knowledge

Yeah it would be cool. Someone mentioned on the youtube comments that Hudson Soft made a similar device but it was a lot smaller. I guess a lot cheaper to produce as well so they could avoid spending out on the nitro capture.

There were two commercially built devices like that, one was based on a "camera", the other was a kit you needed to solder to the DS yourself, both companies had legal issues with Nintendo, both products are withdrawn from the market. Nintendo couldn't risk and allow companies to buy these two rather than their IS-NITRO. There was 1 private kit out there aswell, called the JumbotronDS. It's not hard, it's just tedious.

One way is to get the emulator and then connect your computer to your tv :P

It was only available to authorized Nintendo developers, probably through the warioworld support site. Developer tools are always very expensive but you have to remember it's normally large companies that are buying them. They make profits back from the software they create, hopefully. The price doesn't reflect the general consumer market as it's not available for them to buy.

To get one of these you would probably have to know a DS developer that went bust or no longer works on DS titles, one that has a nitro capture sitting around and is happy to sell it.

Damn, that is pretty awesome.

Too expensive for anyone but a collector to purchase, though.
