Blackmagic has announced the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard, a new console-inspired keyboard designed specifically to improve video editing workflows inside DaVinci Resolve. The keyboard is constructed of a metal frame with a revised QWERTY layout that's pre-programmed to speed up the most-used tools and features inside DaVinci Resolve.
The keys are tiered and set on top of mechanical switches for a more tactile feel and although the keys and switches are rated for millions of clicks, each switch and key is user-replaceable in the event something breaks over time.
A single USB-C port on the back of the board is used to connect it to its accompanying hardware, but Blackmagic Design has also included two additional USB 3. 0 ports on the rear of the keyboard for additional accessories.
The DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard also includes a search control dial that accurately scrubs through footage. When paired with the oversized in/out and source/timeline keys, the control dial makes it easy to cull through footage and get it its place faster than ever. Blackmagic has also included a dedicated numpad section for direct timecode entry.
Blackmagic Design says the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard is set to ship in August for $995 USD through authorized retailers. B&H currently has it available for pre-order, but it's priced at $1,025.. dpreview.com
