DCDigital (formerly known as DCHDMI) is a modification kit created by chriz2600 and citrus3000psi which adds native digital audio and video (via HDMI output) to the Sega Dreamcast. The modification taps into digital video signals on the Dreamcast motherboard to generate pristine HDMI compliant video output. Installation requires advanced surface-mount soldering skills. Both the hardware design and the firmware are open source, allowing anyone to legally clone the mod kit.

  • Games that support the Dreamcast VGA video mode can output direct native 480p, line-doubled 960p, or 1080p created by placing a black border around line-doubled 960p.
  • Games that do not support the Dreamcast VGA video mode can output direct native 240p/480i, deinterlaced 480i, line-doubled deinterlaced 960p, or 1080p created by placing a black border around line-doubled deinterlaced 960p.
  • 960p is not a standard resolution and may not be compatible with all TVs or monitors.

All current hardware modifications, such as overclocking, BIOS modifications, optical drive replacements, 12V line removal, etc. are known to be compatible with DCDigital.
