Blackmagic Design introduced Intensity, the first HDMI PCI Express card. It can pass an HD signal straight out of a low-cost HDV camcorder and into a Mac or PC without needing to be compressed into the HDV format. This will be a blessing for users of HDV camcorders that have HDMI ports, such as Sony's just-introduced HDR-FX7. Now, vid-jockeys can edit in uncompressed HD without the need for more expensive SDI (serial digital interface)-based cameras or decks.
