Blackmagic Design Intensity Shuttle - Thunderbolt Attached Analogue Video Editing Solution (BMD-BINTSSHU/THBOLT)
Shuttle is now available with incredibly fast Thunderbolt technology.
Capture and playback the highest quality SD and HD video in full 10-bit
quality, with HDMI, analog component, composite and S-Video connections.
Intensity Shuttle’s innovative design is compact and portable, plus you
can plug inline with your cables because input connections are on one
side, and output connections on the other! Intensity Shuttle is powered
over the Thunderbolt cable so you don’t need cumbersome power supplies.
Intensity Shuttle uses the same high quality electronics as Blackmagic
Design's high end capture and playback solutions.
Most consumer video cameras compress HD video to fit longer
recordings on to tape and discs. For video editing compressed media
needs to be decoded to play back each frame of video and this puts
additional strain on your computer's CPU and limits real time editing
effects. Capturing directly with Intensity bypasses camera compression
by recording directly from the camera's image sensor, so a low cost
consumer camera can be used to capture full HD resolution video in
True HDMI Digital Connections
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!
Uncompressed or Compressed Video
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
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
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 Adobe 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!
