Everyone needs a little more high-definition in their lives, don't you think? Apparently Blackmagic Design thinks so, as it's just released a new PCI Express card (Mac and Windows compatible) with direct HDMI-in to connect to your HDV digicam or your digital set-top box for a very high-quality capture. The company's site says that this works by bypassing the HDV compression chip, allowing you to access raw superior-quality video, but gives no word on whether or not it supports HDCP. The Intensity, which is shipping on October 15, also supports HDMI formats at 525 NTSC, 625 PAL and 720p or 1080i -- a bargain for only $250. Because after all, technologies that are sufficiently high-def are indistinguishable from black magic.
