  • 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

  • Highest Quality Analog Connections
  • The analog connections for Intensity Pro are provided with a breakout cable that is included
  • 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

  • Use popular software like Adobe Encore to produce incredible looking DVDs and Blu-Ray discs for you to keep forever
  • Live Streaming
  • 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
