Incredible quality HDMI capture and playback!
Intensity lets you capture and playback in the most incredible
quality of HDMI and component analog video in both SD and HD.
Smash the quality barrier for your video work because Intensity
is not only the highest quality, but also affordable! There's
three fantastic models of Intensity; Intensity Pro for PCI
Express based computers, Intensity Shuttle for USB 3.0 computers
and new Intensity Extreme with lightning-fast Thunderbolt™
Go beyond the limits of your AVCHD or HDV camera! Simply plug
using HDMI or analog and capture direct from your camera's CCD!
You get incredible quality that completely bypasses the camera's
video compression. Use Intensity for monitoring from your edit
software for maximum real time effects! Intensity connects
direct to your editing software's real time effects processing!
USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt™
There are three Intensity models available, depending on the
computer you use. Intensity Pro works with Mac, Windows and
Linux computers with PCI Express slots. PCI Express gives you
incredible speed for maximum real time effects in a card based
design that fits right inside your computer. Intensity Shuttle
works on Windows computers with USB 3.0. It uses SuperSpeed USB
3.0, the USB connection standard for computers that's 10 times
faster than regular USB. That's 4.8 Gb/s, which easily handles
the highest quality 10 bit uncompressed 1080HD video on x58 or
P55 series or better Windows computers. And then there’s new
Intensity Extreme. It’s the first of the Intensity range to use
Intel’s revolutionary Thunderbolt™ technology.
True HDMI Digital Connections
Intensity features the
highest quality HDMI input and output connections. HDMI is the
worldwide standard for connecting digital consumer video
equipment like cameras, set-top boxes and disk recorders.
Intensity's HDMI output is perfect for monitoring full HD, HDV
and even DV editing projects on the latest big screen TVs and HD
video projectors! HDMI includes your audio, so you can connect
to your TV with a single cable!
HDV and DV use heavy compression. This increases the load on
your computer's CPU as editing software decodes the video just
to display each frame. Working with uncompressed video leaves
the CPU free for real time effects and your system will feel
snappy and fast to use. As uncompressed HD requires a fast disk
array, Intensity also works with compressed video that's higher
quality than HDV. You can also use popular editing software
codecs like Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD.
Intensity captures full HD images with 1920 x 1080 pixels for
every video frame. HDV reduces the image size to 1440 pixels
wide due to the limitations of camera storage and the data
transfer speed of FireWire. Modern video cameras have built-in
HDMI output and you can directly capture from the camera's image
sensor. Now you can get professional quality images from low
cost cameras and record the image sensor's full quality before
any compression is applied
Intensity will instantly switch between HD and SD video
standards including HDTV 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, 720p/59.94,
720p/50, NTSC and PAL. Intensity can also capture and play back
all professional file formats so you can deliver finished
television programs, music videos and other work at broadcast
standards. Add broadcast quality to your editing system and move
to a new world of video editing where your images always stay
absolutely perfect at full resolution HDTV!
Connect Intensity to your gaming console for amazing live action
game play recording. Intensity is based on high quality
broadcast television electronics, so you'll get full quality and
full motion without dropped frames. This means you get
incredible quality, totally perfect and in full resolution!
