I have captured 8 bit 4:2:2 color HD video with Intensity Pro via HDMI from my Sony Camcorder and shot native AVCHD footage in camcorder. The only difference I see in the video is data size. The Intensity Pro video does not show any noticeable quality from the camcorder footage.
Is there any way, apart from monitoring on HDTV, to determine the quality of the footage?
Again, what advantage does 4:2:2 color video have over native AVCHD files?
