Blackmagic Design has released a new software update for its desktop video products that it says adds full support for the new Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. This Desktop Video 8.2 software update includes support for Apple’s new Core Video and Core Audio processing pipelines for professional grade video and audio functionality across a wide variety of applications.

Core Media is the new way video hardware devices capture and playback to software applications and it's the future of video APIs on the Mac OS X platform. Blackmagic Design says that it's the first company to support this new standard, right from the very first day it's available to customers. The company saus that all developers can design modern 64 bit video software and get high performance capture and playback to hardware, while having the benefit of high quality broadcast solutions for video with new Core Media technology.

This new software update supports all of Blackmagic Design’s DeckLink, Intensity, Multibridge and H.264 Pro Recorder products.
