Intensity now supports HV20

Hi guys,

We've just released the v1.5 driver for Intensity (Mac and Windows 32-bit). This release supports the Canon HV20. Sorry about the wait.

Kristian, I tried Intensity (not Pro version) with drivers v 1.4 and it did not work.

(the card itself did not; nothing to do with hv20... the card simply would not see the hdmi video source like sony v1u...)

Had to downgrade to v 1.2 and it worked.

Is this issue fixed in v 1.5?

Hi Alex,

I'm actually not aware of this issue at all. Could you please try the v1.5 drivers and let me know. If necessary, log a support request using this address:

Thanks.

Very interesting. So, if you have one of these cards do we not have the same problems with pulldown?

I think the issue wasnt with pulldown but with getting a 1080i signal over hdmi instead of just 480i. I'd like to hear if anyone has news about how this actually affects that issue.

I'm looking at all the data on their website..

what does "supported now" mean? Did it not work with its HDMI output before? Does it now support realtime 24p pulldown capture?

Honest questions - not tyring to be difficult

Regardless of the current situation - i'm getting a great deal on being able to setup a HDTV monitor in my home studio with HDMI and getting composite-in for $350 (when i pick one up next month)

I was looking through some other posts about this card, and it doesnt look like it affects the pulldown process at all, but hopefully someone who knows can confirm this one way or another. If by some stretch of the imagination it actually does remove pulldown I'll be ordering one of these before weeks end.

Hi Don,

Intensity was unable to capture from the HV20 previously so we updated the firmware on the card to support it.

We currently capture the 1080i output and don't pull down to 24p.
