Blackmagic Design Announces New Intensity Shuttle with Thunderbolt Technology
Capture and playback amazing quality HDMI and analog 10-bit video in SD and HD.
January 10, 2012 --
Intensity Shuttle will be displayed on the Intel CES 2012 booth at Central Hall #7253.
Intensity Shuttle features all the video connections needed to connect video cameras, set-top boxes, game consoles, large screen TVs and projectors to a Thunderbolt-enabled computer. The attractive inline design includes HDMI, analog component, composite and S-Video inputs and outputs. These high quality HDMI and RCA connectors are the worldwide standard for connecting digital and analog consumer video equipment.
Intensity Shuttle uses the same high quality electronics as Blackmagic Designs high end broadcast capture and playback solutions! Now its possible to capture live game play, archive family movies and create amazing videos in full broadcast quality 1080HD video! Intensity Shuttles HDMI output can be connected to large screen HDTVs and projectors for full high resolution monitoring and playback of your work!
Most consumer video cameras compress HD video to fit longer recordings on to tapes and discs. For video editing compressed media needs to be decoded to play back each frame of video and this puts additional strain on a computers CPU and limits real time editing effects. Capturing directly with Intensity Shuttle bypasses camera compression by recording directly from the cameras image sensor, so a low cost consumer camera can be used to capture full HD resolution video in broadcast quality!
Intensity Shuttle offers the flexibility of working with compressed and uncompressed video in standard definition PAL/NTSC up to full 1080p HD video. Blackmagic Designs Media Express software is included for a complete capture and playback solution without the need for any additional software. Video files are fully compatible with popular editing and design software including Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.
?Using Intensity Shuttle with Thunderbolt technology combines the quality and speed that videographers demand, said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. ?Its incredibly exciting when technologies come together and create new opportunities for the way people work with video. The barriers of working with broadcast quality video have gone forever and everyone can create amazing looking work!
