NAB: Blackmagic Offers New Professional Video Hardware for the Mac

The Multibridge Eclipse connects to a host Mac using a PCI Express slot, functioning as an external capture and playback system. It allows you to switch between Standard Definition (SD), High Definition (HD) and 2K video format with qualities of 4: 2: 2 and 4: 4: 4.

Multibridge Eclipse offers a 3 gigabits per second (Gbps) SDI connection, allowing twice the SDI data stream compared to conventional HD-SDI connection. The Eclipse also incorporates a series of switchable inputs and outputs to support SD, HD and 2K, being compatible with Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro.

Intensity Pro is an editing card equipped with a high definition multimedia interface (HDMI), in addition to having an analog connection. It is designed for Mac or PC computers with PCI Express, and the card offers two HDMI connectors and an analog interface that allows the connection of PAL, NTSC and S-Video devices for capture and playback.

The Intensity Pro card expands the original Intensity card to add an analog port priced at $ 249. Both cards are compatible with Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, and other QuickTime compatible applications.

HDLink Pro is specifically designed as an HDTV resolution monitor converter. It works with HDMI and DVI monitors and incorporates 2K support through a 3Gbps SDI connection, making it an ideal complement to the Multibridge Eclipse, according to the manufacturer. It incorporates 3D reference tables that can be updated using a Mac or PC, software and a USB 2.0 cable as well as six audio channels among other features.
