Blackmagic Design Gets Intense

Blackmagic Design has announced the first HDMI PCI Express card. As you can see it features two ports and is said to work by bypassing the HDV compression chip to allow raw video. It supports 525 NTSC, 625 PAL, 720p and 1080i. It will be available October 15 for $249. This might be the product many people were waiting on before building an HD media center .
