You may wan to check with Blackmagic but I think you will find that this is only qualified with FCP not FCPX.

I use an Intensity Extreme which is similar.
It does work with FCP X. In & Output.
You will require the software which is downloadable from the Black Magic site.
Have everything connected before starting FCP X.
When started the Windows>A/V Output will be active and you can check it to output over HDMI.
Mine is Thunderbolt powered only.

Rookie mistake, but I did not know you had to go to the Window tab in FCP and enable "A/V Output" in order to get the video to an external monitor. The Intensity manual says nothing about this, and the techs at Blackmagic knew nothing about it either. A previous post on this thread is what finally saved me.
For some other rookies who may not yet know, Intensity Pro cannot live capture video from FCP X, while it CAN with previous versions of FCP. However, the Media Express capture software that comes with the unit does a great job of live capture, which also enables one to do live web streaming (over ustream or livestream, for example.) Premiere Pro also can live capture. Importing the captured files to FCP is a snap.

Did you ever receive an answer for this? I have a Design Ultrastudio 4k with the same issue. I'd prefer not to use the Media Express capture software, I also used a Canopus ADVC110 and fFCPX was able to capture video perfectly. In my opinion, this is a Thunderbolt problem. Is there a plugin that can be downloaded for FCPX to recognize the thunderbolt connection?

This issue seems to have beeen resolved with FCPX version 10.0.7 or 10.0.8. Once you upgrade you should be fine. You must also enable A/V Output on the Windows menu within FCPX. Hope this helps.
