The Intensity Range - Overview

Incredible quality HDMI capture and playback!

Intensity 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!


PCI Express, USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt™

It’s easy to add the amazing quality of Intensity to your laptop, desktop or computer workstation!
