    Blackmagic Design BINTSPRO reviews

    Intensity Pro HDMI and Analog Editing Card - PCI Express is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 244.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised! This product does exactly what its description says it does - captures standard definition and high definition via various analog connections and HDMI connections and outputs audio and video back out via similar connections. If you need an inexpensive way to jump into working with a wide variety of source types, this may be a great way to go. I have my Intensity Pro card installed in a Mac Pro running Final Cut Studio 2 and OS X 10.5. After a few moments of figuring out how the control panel works and getting the Easy Setups working, everything has been working great. I can monitor SD and HD video at various frame rates via an inexpensive HDTV monitor. This is a very versatile product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but limited Intensity Pro works well, but is limited to only a few of the older, more popular HD codecs. If you are going to be using just these codecs it outputs and plays fine. However if you are not going to be using just these codecs then the card is not usable and will output only a single frame as a still. It also does not support the newer more advanced version of the apple codecs released with Final Cut Studio 3. Since the codecs are limited to a select few codecs it would work well in a setup where only those codecs are used. For all other uses I can't recommended it. It is not a universal HDMI output device.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Choice I use the card for viewing video out of Pro Tools. It works great! Fairly easy to set up. But, I didn't get any support from Blackmagic themselves. I had a question about setting it up in Pro Tools and they couldn't answer it and pointed me to Avid/Digidesign to solve the problem. My problem with them was they seemed to pass the buck. It ended up being a simple fix, but they didn't have any interest in helping. Their literature says they're compatible with Pro Tools which is true. They just can't help you setup the card with Pro Tools. So, buy it. It's a good solution. Just don't expect any help from Blackmagic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can only pay more Setup is a breeze and the accompanying software is both useful and forward thinking. The pigtail with the Pro card is a life-saver if you need to suddenly pull in some analog content or send video to a non-HD device. There's really nothing else to compete with the Intensity Pro in this price space and the card really delivers what it promises. Black Magic has basically set the bar and everyone else will need to set their sights higher to compete. If you're doing HDMI capture or want an inexpensive two-camera setup, the Intensity or Intensity Pro is the card(s) for you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great HDMI capture tool The goal was to use this tool to capture audio and video from a smart phone. Video worked great, but I had problems with the audio. The smart phone outputs audio at 44.1 ksps which is not covered by the Intensity Pro (as clearly stated in its specs). Audio capture on the RCA inputs was easy and reliable. I particularly like the software that comes with the card that will does the setup and the capture. There is no need to invest large sums of money in video editing software. I have multiple PCIe cards in my PC and I had to swap the order of the cards to make the Intensity Pro work. After that installation was a snap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I thought This product has been great! I will be honest though I did have some trouble getting it started working.. The software had to be installed twice to work.. But 10mins later all is running well.. I wish it supported 24p 1080 though.. Also VERY IMPORTANT.. For those of you (like me) who do not back up their FCP preferences (i.e. keyboard layout, window layout, presets) You will loose them when you install the program.. SO BACK IT ON UP! Other than that my footage is looking 20% better, 30% bigger, and 25% better render times.. Def worth the money... Enjoy!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Far? A Paper Weight I have sent two emails as I have yet to receive a response from anyone at Blackmagic to my first request for support a week ago. The problem is I keep getting a BSOD's whenever I close or make any setting changes in Blackmagic's Media Express or vMix. One thing that is an obvious problem is that the mounting bracket on the Intensity pro card does not line up at all with the mounting hole on my PC case or two of my other cases on other machines for that matter. So when I screw in the card bracket it causes it to not seat properly in the PCI-E slot. I have seen that other folks are having this same issue on other forums. Blackmagic needs to resolve this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Competent HDMI/Component Solution What I mean by easy is that the Intensity Pro does what it is supposed to do and it does it right without causing problems.I have needed an affordable High Definition video capturing and processing solution for years. Every low-cost hardware product up till now was limited to 480i, or else was severely limited, compressed high definition. How sweet, now with the Intensity Pro, to see great color in perfect high resolution video simultaneously on both a PC monitor and on an HDTV using either in/out HDMI or in/out component video.Blackmagic is very confident in this product and I promise you that they have every reason to be proud.The installation and workflow are simple if you have a high level of PC expertise, but the hard disk speed demands are formidable. Download their manual. Be sure to read about the -high transfer rate- and high storage requirements for uncompressed HD video on a computer. I bought way too little storage (600GB comprised of two 320GB drives) and have had to order 2TB of four 500GB sata drives to run in RAID 0 (striping) -- and this is just for -maybe- four hours of reliable capturing. (Four hours is about the longest movie on TV, with commercials.)Although my 600GB is not wasted since it can be used for output when I convert the uncompressed data to some other usable compressed format. High speed RAID 0 striped disk output can be important to reduce I/O constriction.Don't be discouraged about hard drive size and speeds. You can use Blackmagic's software compression MJPEG codec in realtime during capture which significantly lowers both data transfer speeds and storage requirements, but you'll need a 3GHz (more or less) dual core processor to do it.Install. Simply put the PCIe x1 card into a fairly robust PC (or MAC) computer, but first download the latest drivers from Blackmagic to have them available rather than the ones on the CD. Don't let Windows install the drivers. Do it yourself with Blackmagic's installation procedure you downloaded.Capture Software. I have captured broadcast HDMI and HD component video using Blackmagic's Media Express and Sony Vegas and, best yet, VirtualDub. VideoStudio 11.5 Plus does not work for capture because of a problem they have with their DirectShow driver. But I still use VS for post-processing.One extremely quirky thing with this card is that you have to use Blackmagic's Intensity software to select the input and you must then also select the resolution in the other display/capture application you use, else all that is shown is a black screen. This isn't all bad since you can also set the card to upconvert 720p to 1080i, or down convert to SD in hardware realtime using Intensity setup. For me, all the installation and setup stuff was easy and flawless, but I have 48-years of experience, and I read a million web pages about how to do it. It only took a couple long, long days after a couple long hard weeks of research just to -ensure- that the Blackmagic Intensity Pro was the greatest, ...
