With the advent of non-linear editing systems dedicated video editing keyboards turned into an essential asset and become an integrated part of every professional video editing workflow ever since. Their efficiency has not only been unambiguously proven over the years but they continue to evolve with the addition of more smart features and innovative functionality.
UK-based company Editor Keys, mainly known for its innovative custom-made keyboards for creative professionals and enthusiasts alike, has taken this peripheral device to a whole new level. Billed as the world’s first backlit editing keyboard for Premiere Pro CC, the particular model below boasts low-profile keys packed with all Premiere Pro CC shortcuts you’ll ever need when editing. In addition, the keyboard has three brightness settings that allow you to adjust its backlight intensity right the way you want.
The Editors Keys dedicated Adobe Premiere Pro CC keyboard is compatible with all versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CC and works perfectly on both PC and Mac. The USB cable of the keyboard has some decent length but if you prefer a wireless solution then you can opt for the Adobe Premiere Pro CC Wireless Slimline Keyboard that is also available for PC and Mac.
Editor Keys keyboards feature beautiful icons, shortcut text and a clear typeface that can certainly make the editing process faster especially when compared to a traditional keyboard. The integrated backlights offer an amazing even spread of light across all keys, so you can read them clearly in various lighting conditions. The keys also feel strong and weighty under your fingers and have a nice snap to them.
Editors Keys has been constantly expanding its product portfolio as it now offers a handful of related products including dedicated keyboards for video, audio, and graphic design alongside multiple layouts for Windows users and software shortcut keyboards for Avid Media Composer, DaVinci Resolve, Adobe After Effects, Edius and more.
In addition, the company recently launched some enticing shortcut keyboard covers for the latest Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar that not only covers and protect the laptop from dust and liquid spills, but also offers over 150 shortcuts for NLEs such as Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X and the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of programs.
