Intensity is an ultra low cost HDMI capture playback card. For the first time, low cost consumer cameras with HDMI video connections can move beyond the quality limits of HDV compressed video to a new world of uncompressed editing and design.
Intensity is an incredibly small HDMI capture and playback card that instantly switches between 1080HD, 720HD, NTSC and PAL video standards. Once Intensity is plugged into compatible PCI Express Windows or Mac OS X computers, users get the amazing quality of uncompressed video via HDMI from cameras, decks and set top boxes, enabling them to playback to any HDMI big screen television or video projector for video editing, in SD or HD, and with real time effects.
Using the same Blackmagic Design technology as used in the latest Hollywood feature films, Intensity is designed to allow people with consumer level cameras to benefit from uncompressed video quality, allowing direct-from-CCD recording for the highest uncompressed quality. Users can capture to disk arrays for high speed uncompressed video, or when disk speed and space is tight, choose from a range of professional compressed codecs that go well beyond HDV for quality.
Intensity is fully compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop and any DirectShow or QuickTime based software application. Intensity works with almost any video software.
