Blackmagic announced the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard, a new console-inspired keyboard specifically designed to improve workflows for video editing within DaVinci Resolve.
The keyboard consists of a metal frame with a revised QWERTY layout that is pre-programmed to accelerate DaVinci Resolve’s most-used tools and features. For a more tactile feel, the keys are tiered and set on top of mechanical switches, and while the keys and switches are rated for millions of clicks, each switch and key is user-replaceable in case something breaks over time.
To connect it to its accompanying hardware, a single USB-C port on the back of the board is used, but Blackmagic Design also included two additional USB 3.0 ports for additional accessories on the back of the keyboard.
Also included in the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard is a search control dial that scrubs through footage accurately. When combined with the over-sized in / out and source/timeline keys, the control dial makes it easier to pull through footage and make it faster than ever before. Blackmagic also included a dedicated section of numpad for direct time code entry.
Blackmagic Design says the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard will be shipping through authorized retailers for $995 USD in August. B&H currently has the pre-order available, but the price is $1,025.
