The Pro Indie Toolkit is a series of tools developed by Heuris for capturing and working with HD footage. It includes XtractorHDV, a tool for transferring video and audio from JVC's HD cameras to the desktop through a FireWire interface. It allows Apple's Final Cut Pro to import native HDV footage. It also includes XtoHD, a utility used to play an HD file back through a DVHS deck through a FireWire connection. It can also be used to record footage to a DVHS tape. And finally, it also includes MPEG Power Professional-DTVHD, an MPEG-2 encoding solution that reads QuickTime, AVI and OMF formats and outputs to ATSC HDTV resolution (1080i or 720p) at 19.2 Mbps.
