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!
Highest Quality Analog Connections
Intensity Shuttle has built-in HDMI and analog video and audio connections, with all inputs on one side and all outputs on the other. The analog connections for Intensity Pro and Intensity Extreme are provided with a breakout cable that is included with each model.
Uncompressed or Compressed Video
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.
Full HD Resolution
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.
DVD and Blu-Ray Authoring
DVD and Blu-Ray Discs created from uncompressed media are much higher quality and look amazing! Intensity can create QuickTime™ and AVI video files that are fully compatible with editing and DVD authoring software. Use popular software like Encore® to produce incredible looking DVDs and Blu-Ray discs for you to keep forever!
Improve the quality of internet video streaming by starting with a clean uncompressed video source! Compressing to streaming standards from already compressed video will dramatically reduce quality and it will take more computer processing resources. Intensity works with all leading streaming software so you can capture video in the highest possible quality before applying a single form of compression that suits delivery over the web!
