Blackmagic Design Intensity Pro 4K Capture Card


New from Blackmagic, the Intensity Pro 4K includes all of the features of the previous Intensity Pro model, while adding deep color support in HDMI, 60 fps capture and playback for 1080p video and, most notably, Ultra HD resolution support of up to 30p over HDMI. The PCIe card features an HDMI input, HDMI output, and analog breakout connections for YUV, S-Video, and NTSC/PAL sources. Whether you’re editing video and need real-time preview on your HDTV, a gamer looking to capture high-frame-rate clips from your latest games, or working with old VHS decks and analog equipment, the Intensity Pro 4K is ready for the task.

Intensity Pro 4K is a 4-lane PCIe card, compatible with 4-, 8-, and 16-lane PCIe slots, and can be used with computers running Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems. The HDMI 1.4b connectors support deep color and automatically configure to connected displays. Video can be captured at 10-bit quality, and files can be saved in standard compressed and uncompressed formats using the included and easy-to-use Media Express software. The card can also be used with other popular video capture and editing software, such as Apple’s Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, Sony Vegas, and Adobe Premiere Pro.



For now I'm only working in HD, so I'm considering getting two ASUS ProArt Series monitors (the 24" variant) - one for the computer display, the other for program video out from my NLE, since it's rated for 100% Rec. 709 display as well as 100% sRGB display.  Question is (and this should be a whole section on Explora's tips), to display true Rec. 709, do I need to output from a third party pro video card like the Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4K, or can I get by with using one of the outputs on my AMD Radeon RX580 GPU to display the correct color and other aspects of the Rec. 709 spec?  Assuming, that is, that I don't need capture/other output capabilities?

Hi Michael -

According to AUTODESK and Blackmagicdesign this combination is compatible and will work well together.
