Streaming with Blackmagic Intensity Pro capture card
Editing on a big HD monitor is now easier with Intensity Pro using the HDMI interface. Live streaming with this card means you get uncompressed video source so the CPU won’t waste resources trying to de compress the video while capturing.
Intensity Pro is the first affordable video card to combine HDMI capture and playback with analog component, PAL and S-video. It offers one the possibility to edit on wide screen HDMI TV’s or capture directly from HDV cameras. This is awesome because existing editing solutions won’t play back to HDV cams for monitoring.
Here is a short comparison between Intensity Pro and Osprey 700 from Viewcast:
Another good thing is that the On-Air solution comes with the board allowing you to connect 2 Intensity Pro boards into the same computer to mix 2 video cameras when streaming live video. This device has been created to switch very fast between NTSC (standard used in USA and Japan), PAL and 720HD and 1080HD standards.
You can run some tests yourself if you have an Intensity Pro card using free applications. Read more about one of them (HD application) at: http://www.thehdstandard.com/hd-broadcaster/
