Below are some instructors and websites for finding great plyometric workouts:

Mindy Mylrea offers several advanced interval videos. "All Out Cardio" offers a number of high energy options, "Tabata Trek" is perfect for spinners and cyclers and "Awesome Intervals" says it all.

Cathe Friedrich offers a wide variety of plyo and interval training, some videos using a step and others using nothing but your own body. Stand outs include "Interval Max," "IMAX 2," and a very challenging HIIT video, called, well, "Hiit - High Intensity Interval Training" that includes three different workouts and tons of plyo exercises. Cathe is a solid choice for high intensity, high impact plyo workouts.
