(November 9, 2006 Placentia, CA) CalDigit today announced that, at DV Expo in Los Angeles, November 16, 2006, Dan May, President of Blackmagic Design Inc. will demonstrate the Blackmagic Design Intensity video capture card and the CalDigit S2VR HD capturing uncompressed footage directly from a HDV camcorder via HDMI.

“We are extremely excited to be able to make uncompressed HD capturing affordable with Blackmagic Design’s Intensity card,” said Dan May, President, Blackmagic Design Inc. “Intensity enables the capture of the highest uncompressed quality video direct from CCD recording in consumer level cameras.” May will demonstrate the use of the new Intensity card at the DVEXPO on November 16, 2006, at 4:15 p.m. in Room #301A.

“To capture uncompressed HD 1080i footage directly from the camera has only been possible in the past with costly SCSI or fibre-channel storage solutions along with HD-SDI capture cards and high-end HDV camcorders equipped with HD-SDUI output,” said Jon Schilling, Account Manager, CalDigit, “Now we offer the S2VR HD which, when used in conjunction with a number of manufacturers’ HDMI output cameras and Blackmagic Design’s Intensity card, puts you on the path to uncompressed HD editing, all at a compressed cost.”

CalDigit will be showing the quality line of low cost S2VR SATA II 3Gb/s RAID products and PCIe (completely Mac Pro compatible) / PCIx controller cards, as well as the brand new CalDigit FASTA-1ex SATA II to ExpressCard/34 for MacBook Pro. This card enables you to capture, develop, edit and create content in almost any environment on the go, when using Apple's new MacBook Pro notebook computers.
