Blackmagic Design (http://www.blackmagic-design.com) has announced the US$239 Intensity Shuttle, a new video capture and playback solution that uses the Thunderbolt technology found on the latest Macs.
It features video connections to connect video cameras, set-top boxes, game consoles, large screen TVs and projectors to a Thunderbolt-enabled computer. The e inline design includes HDMI, analog component, composite and S-Video inputs and outputs.
Thunderbolt-enabled computers connect to Intensity Shuttle using a single cable that’s capable of 10 Gbps data transfer speeds. That’s 20x faster than USB 2.0 and 12x faster than FireWire 800. The Blackmagic solution is powered over the Thunderbolt cable with no need for an external power supply.
