Blackmagic Design Announces New Software 1.2 for Intensity
Posted Mar 5, 2007

Blackmagic Design Inc. today announced the immediate availability of new software for all Intensity HDMI capture and playback cards. Intensity 1.2 is compatible with Windows and Intel based Mac OS X based systems.

New Intensity 1.2 software features expanded HDMI compatibility for use with a greater range of newer HDMI devices recently released into the market. Also included in this release is Blackmagic Media Express, a new media capture and playback utility which makes it easy to move media clips between video devices and the computer disk. Blackmagic Media Express is incredibly useful when doing web streaming or DVD authoring of content where the cost of more complex NLE software is not required. With the release of the new Microsoft Windows Vista, Intensity 1.2 allows customers to now easily migrate to the new Windows Vista platform for professional video editing.

"We are excited about this Intensity update, because it gives our customers even greater compatibility with the latest HDMI devices that have been released over the last few months, such as the exciting new HDV decks, set top boxes and DVD players" said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. "Our customers want the highest quality possible with the widest compatibility with HDMI devices and operating systems, and this new Intensity 1.2 software update certainly does this."

Intensity Software Version 1.2 Features include the following:
• Support for the new Windows Vista platform.
• New Blackmagic Media Express utility for video capture and playback.
• Expanded compatibility with more HDMI devices.
• Various compatibility and performance enhancements.

Intensity 1.2 is available now for all registered Intensity customers free of charge from the Blackmagic Design web site at www.blackmagic-design.com.
