1080p60 support on Intensity Shuttle (Thunderbolt)

PostMon Dec 31, 2012 2:14 am

I've seen in a different thread on this forum that the Thundebolt version of the Shuttle has 1080p60 support and B&H also says the same. Could someone from Blackmagic confirm or deny this please. I'm very much considering the Thunderbolt version of the shuttle if this is true.

It doesn't. Here's what the official website claims to be supported resolutions:

1080i50, 1080i59.94, 1080i60, 1080p23.98, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p29.97, 1080p30, 720p50, 720p59.94 and 720p60.

Initially it did mention 1080P60 support, which is why so many people are confused about it. It was silently removed. What's worse is that they essentially did the same thing with the USB 3.0 version. They suggested that the Shuttle is perfectly capable of 1080P60 support and that it would eventually be added:

One exciting feature of Intensity Shuttle (and UltraStudio Pro) is it includes full support for HDMI and component up to 1080p60. However even though current USB 3.0 computers support full 10 bit uncompressed at normal 1080i HD frame rates, current USB 3.0 computers don't yet have enough speed to operate at progressive frame rates. But Intensity Shuttle is ready as computers get faster!

A lot of people bought it assuming the functionality would be added, but it's now two years later and no additional resolutions have been added at all. And apparently they're now doing exactly the same thing all over again with the Thunderbolt version. I'd seriously like to know exactly where we stand on this matter as well.
