SD, HD and Ultra HD
Intensity Pro 4K works with everything from NTSC, PAL, 720HD, 1080HD and all the way up to Ultra HD, the world’s newest video standard. Ultra HD has a massive resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels which is four times the resolution of regular 1080HD! That means you get an amazing, lifelike experience because the images are incredibly sharp, colors literally pop off the screen and you’ll be able to see more detail than ever!

Intense Game Capture
Today’s HD game consoles can run up to 60 frames per second so you get the smoothest motion during even the fastest paced gameplay. That’s double the frame rate of ordinary HD video! The latest consoles also feature deep color, so you get dramatically better color for a more realistic gaming experience. Intensity Pro 4K can capture 1080 HD video at up to 60 frames per second. That means you can capture every heart pounding detail of gameplay and create the most amazing looking walk through videos for posting online to share with your audience!
Archive Old Tapes and DVDs
Rescue your old VHS, BetaMax video tapes and DVDs by making digital archives with Intensity Pro 4K! If your DVDs get scratched or your old tapes deteriorate and break you could lose important video memories forever. And as tapes get older, it’s harder and harder to find working decks to play them back! Intensity Pro 4K captures better looking video than other solutions because it includes a professional, broadcast grade time base corrector to help stabilize video from poor quality tapes, like VHS and older DVDs. You can even adjust the audio and video levels before you capture so that your video looks as good as possible. Files can be saved as either uncompressed or compressed video so your valuable video is preserved forever!
Simply Better Quality
Intensity Pro 4K is the only consumer video capture and playback card that’s built using the same broadcast quality video components that professionals in the film and television industry use! Files can be saved in professional compressed formats, like ProRes and DNxHD, or as fully uncompressed 10-bit video, the format used by professional television production studios. That means you always get the highest quality video and the best color precision possible when working with the latest Ultra HD televisions and projectors, gaming consoles, set top boxes, consumer cameras, VHS decks, DVD players, older broadcast decks and more!
Works With Everything
Intensity Pro 4K is a PCIe card for Mac, Windows, and Linux computers. It includes the easy to use Media Express software for Mac, Windows and Linux, along with DaVinci Resolve Lite for Mac and Windows. That means you get a complete video capture and post production solution in the box without having to buy any additional software! You can also save files in QuickTime or Windows Media format and then use them with other popular Mac and Windows applications like Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro, Vegas Pro, Media Composer, Fusion, After Effects, Flash and many more.
Intensity Pro 4K lets you do high end video editing with consumer video equipment such as large screen TVs for realtime edit monitoring. Intensity Pro 4K is the perfect solution for capturing from both the latest HDMI cameras or even older analog videotapes. Once the video has been captured, you can edit, color correct or even create animations and effects while watching it play back full screen on a cinematic big screen television. The built in HDMI connections let you plug directly into the latest HD and Ultra HD televisions so you can see your work on the big screen! Intensity Pro 4K works with the world’s best video software like DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro, Media Composer and more!
Computer screens display color using RGB values, while televisions use YUV. That means they both display different ranges of colors. The colors you see on a computer monitor might not display the same way on a customer’s HD or Ultra HD television when viewing at home. When you’re color correcting a video project it’s important to see everything play back on an HD or Ultra HD television so you can make accurate decisions about the color while you work. Intensity Pro 4K lets you connect everything from analog NTSC/PAL standard definition televisions all the way up to the latest digital HD and Ultra HD displays so you always see your work with the correct color!
Most consumer cameras heavily compress video so they can fit longer recordings onto the media. To stream video live over the internet, it’s always better to start with the cleanest possible video. By connecting your camera directly into Intensity Pro 4K you can bypass the camera’s internal compression. That means you’re not decompressing from one format and recompressing into another so you get lower CPU load and much better image quality. Intensity Pro 4K is compatible with popular video streaming software like Flash Media Encoder, Wirecast, Livestream Procaster and more, so you can easily create high quality live or on-demand broadcasts for the web!
When you’re editing audio for a video project using applications like ProTools, Nuendo, or Cubase, you’re limited to viewing video in a small window on your computer’s monitor. With Intensity Pro 4K you can output the video with perfect A/V synchronization and watch it on a big screen HD or Ultra HD television! Once your master mix is complete, you can use the built in speakers on your HD or Ultra HD television to hear how it will sound on consumer televisions to ensure your audio mix is not rejected by broadcasters. Using a large screen in your recording studio makes it easier to see how the sound and picture come together as you work on the sound and is also a great way to show clients your work!
