Blackmagic Design Intensity Shuttle is the world’s first 10-bit HD/SD editing solution for USB 3.0 Windows computers!
Simply plug Intensity Shuttle into editing workstation and get access to incredible quality 10-bit HDMI, analogue component, composite and S-Video (Y/C) capture and playback. Intensity Shuttle’s innovative design is compact and portable, and is simply to use with in-line connections – that is to say inputs on one side, outputs directly opposite on the other.
Intensity Shuttle also powers directly off the USB 3.0 connection so you don’t need additional power supplies, and keep things simply when traveling. Intensity Shuttle supports HDMI 1.3 and 1080p and is bound to become more important as USB 3.0 grows in availability.
Formats such as HDV and DV use video compression for smaller and easier to manage files, however this sacrifices image quality, and in the case of HDV you don’t even get full resolution 1920 x 1080 HDTV video. That means HDV is not really HD! Uncompressed video capture with perfect quality video is now easy thanks to modern and fast computer hard disks. Uncompressed video won’t suffer from generation loss and always looks amazingly clean and sharp. Uncompressed video also renders faster as you don’t waste CPU time with video compression. Now 100% of your CPU time can be used rendering your effects!
True HDMI Digital Connections
Intensity features HDMI-in for connecting to cameras and digital set-top boxes for the highest quality capture. Get higher quality capture from HD cameras by capturing direct and bypassing the HDV compression chip for high quality video captured direct from the image sensor. As edit software can’t play back to HDV cameras for monitoring, Intensity is ideal to use for monitoring uncompressed HD or HDV, and even DV edits on the latest big screen televisions and video projectors by connecting to the built-in HDMI out.
Go Beyond HDV Video Quality
HDV video compression suffers from not being full 1920 HD resolution, and the extra processing required makes editing difficult. With Intensity, you can now capture and play back full resolution HDTV uncompressed video for true broadcast and feature film quality editing. Totally eliminate HDV & DV compression quality problems, and render much cleaner graphics while retaining deeper color and image detail. If you need lower data rate editing, you can also select from a range of professional compressed video capture modes. Intensity includes the same Blackmagic Design video technology used on Hollywood feature films, so quality won’t limit your creativity.
Live Production with On-Air 2.0
Experience the incredible excitement of filming events live. Included with Intensity is Blackmagic On-Air 2.0, which allows two Intensity boards to be plugged into Apple Mac Pro and Windows systems for live mixing between two HD or SD cameras. On-Air includes everything you need for a live production studio including camera monitoring, program monitoring, graphic keying and recording to disk. Cameras auto sync, so you don’t even need expensive genlock featured cameras as any HDV camera with HDMI-out will do. Full resolution live HD production is ideal for weddings, education, corporate production and more. HD has never been so affordable.
