This product has been discontinued. 


Introducing Intensity Extreme, built with blazingly fast Thunderbolt technology. Machined from a solid piece of aluminum, Intensity Extreme gives you incredible quality HDMI, component video, s-video and composite 10 bit capture and playback. This super-sleek, high-speed data transfer system offers an incredible 10 Gb/s connection that’s up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and up to 11.5 times faster than FireWire 800. Better still, this revolutionary new device is compatible with Final Cut Pro 7™, Adobe Premiere Pro™, Adobe After Effects™, Nuke™, DaVinci Resolve and more.

Professional Performance

Go beyond the limits of your AVCHD or HDV camera! Simply plug using HDMI or analog and capture direct from your camera's CCD! You get incredible quality that completely bypasses the camera's video compression. Use Intensity for monitoring from your edit software for maximum real time effects! Intensity connects direct to your editing software's real time effects processing!

PCI Express, USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt

There are three Intensity models available, depending on the computer you use. Intensity Pro works with Mac, Windows and Linux computers with PCI Express slots. PCI Express gives you incredible speed for maximum real time effects in a card based design that fits right inside your computer. Intensity Shuttle works on Windows computers with USB 3.0. It uses SuperSpeed USB 3.0, the USB connection standard for computers that's 10 times faster than regular USB. That's 4.8 Gb/s, which easily handles the highest quality 10 bit uncompressed 1080HD video on x58 or P55 series or better Windows computers. And then there’s new Intensity Extreme. It’s the first of the Intensity range to use Intel’s revolutionary Thunderbolt™ technology.
