|Adding a HDMI port using a Raspberry Pi: Amiga-Digital-Video|
The goal of the Github project Amiga-Digital-Video is to add a HDMI port to an Amiga 500, 1000 or 2000 or to a CDTV. A small adapter board is put under the Denise chip. With the help of a ribbon cable, the Raspberry Pi can extract the RGB signals of the Amigas and convert them into a digital video signal using the RGBtoHDMI software.
The software runs directly on the Pi - without requiring an operating system. According to the developer the "HDMI picture has a very low latency (a few milliseconds at most)". Therefore this solution can be also used for games. By watching some videos (1, 2) you can get an idea of the qualitiy. (cg) (Translation: dr)
