Blackmagic Design Intensity Shuttle for Thunderbolt

Intensity 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, analogue 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.

Incredible quality HDMI capture and playback!

The Intensity Shuttle lets you capture and playback in the most incredible quality 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! Intensity features all the video connections you need to connect to video cameras, set-top boxes, game consoles, large screen TVs and projectors.

Highest Quality Video

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 broadcast quality!

Professional Video Standards

The Intensity Shuttle offers the flexibility of working with compressed and uncompressed video in standard definition PAL/NTSC up to full 1080HD video. You can capture live game play, archive family movies and create amazing videos in full broadcast quality video! Blackmagic Design’s Media Express software is included for a complete capture and playback solution without the need for any additional software.

Highest Quality Analog Connections

All Intensity models feature RCA connectors so you can use all types of analog video and audio equipment. Get full compatibility with analog component, composite and S-Video, in NTSC or PAL and with analog audio.

True HDMI Digital Connections

Intensity features the highest quality HDMI connections that are the worldwide standard for consumer digital video equipment. HDMI connects full HD video quality and digital audio to TVs and more.

Use Popular Video Software

Video files are fully compatible with popular editing and design software including Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe® Premiere Pro® CC, Avid Media Composer, Photoshop® CC and After Effects® CC.

Record your Game Play!

Connect Intensity to game consoles for amazing live action game play recording! Intensity features the same high quality electronics as Blackmagic Design’s high end broadcast capture and playback solutions!
