Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard
More than just a simple keyboard, the Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard has been designed as an alternative way to edit that’s much faster than a mouse because customers can simultaneously use both hands at the same time. Customers also get an integrated search dial built right into the keyboard.
The all metal design is more robust because it’s been designed for professional editors who spend hours each day editing and demand a premium keyboard solution. Unlike modern keyboards with flat keys, the keys have a tiered profile so it’s easy to feel their way around. The key switches are the same type used by eSports keyboards and each key is certified for over a million operations. The integrated search dial is machined from solid metal and allows very precise transport and trimming control. Plus the keys caps, hand rest and key switches are all available as spare parts so the keyboard can be refreshed and repaired over time.
The reason the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard is so fast is customers can use both hands when editing. Unlike a mouse, customers can use their right hand to control the position in a clip, while their left hand is setting in and out points as well as applying edits. This means customers can move, mark in and out points, apply an edit, then move again, repeatedly, one after the other, again and again. It’s an extremely fast way to work, using both hands at once.
The editing functions are located just above the in and out keys, to allow a simple movement of their fingers to activate the edit customers require. Because editing with a keyboard is quite different to editing on a computer’s user interface, the editing functions have been optimized to take advantage of the speed of a keyboard. Most edits can be performed on the source clip without needing to place edit points on the timeline itself. That's much faster as it eliminates time wasted switching between source and timeline. The edit points can automatically locate the nearest timeline edit, or even match timecode. A good example is smart insert, which locates the nearest edit and inserts at that point.
