Blackmagic Design release new DaVinci Resolve Micro and Mini Panels

After many years of speculation and requests, Blackmagic Design have released not one but two more incredible control surfaces for DaVinci Resolve. The Micro and Mini will help improve users’ control and speed with Resolve in many different grading and editing environments.

The Micro

The DaVinci Resolve Micro Panel is a high quality, portable, low profile panel that features three high resolution trackballs and 12 precision machined control knobs for accessing all essential primary colour correction tools. Above the centre trackball are keys for switching between log and offset colour correction, as well as a key to display DaVinci Resolve’s full screen viewer, which is great for use with laptops. 18 dedicated keys on the right side also give you access to the most commonly used grading features and playback controls.

The DaVinci Resolve Micro Panel is perfect for independent editors and colourists that need a truly portable solution – great on set to create looks and evaluate colour and lighting, ideal for quickly grading video in broadcast trucks, great for education, and much more!

The Mini

The DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel is a compact panel that’s packed with a massive combination of features and controls. Like the Micro Panel, you get three professional trackballs along with a variety of buttons for switching tools, adding color correctors and navigating your node tree. It also features two colour LCD screens that display menus, controls and parameter settings for the selected tool, along with direct access buttons that let you go direct to the menus for specific DaVinci features.

The DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel is ideal for editors and colourists that need to regularly switch between editing and colour grading, or for freelance colourists that need to take their panel with them when moving between facilities. The mini panel is also great for colourists working on location shoots, for corporate and event videographers, houses of worship and more!

NAB 2016: Tangent Ripple shipping soon!

NAB 2016: Tangent Ripple shipping soon!

Tangent’s long-awaited entry level Ripple panel has been on the horizon since IBC 2015, but now the design and details have been finalised and we’re closing in on a shipping date.


Here’s the official blurb: “Getting in touch with your software has never been more affordable. Ripple is Tangent’s new entry level panel with a price-tag to match. Designed for the occasional colourist, editor, and student, Ripple provides the essential three-way trackerball controls to speed up primary grading. Its small footprint means it sits comfortably beside your keyboard, mouse and tablet.

“Like all Tangent panels, Ripple is supported by the Tangent Mapper, which means many applications will allow you to customise control layouts or build your own from scratch. Ripple is automatically supported by all applications which support the Tangent Hub which means that it should work right out of the box, for example. Resolve, Nucoda, SCRATCH, SpeedGrade, Premiere Pro etc. Ripple can also be combined with any panels from the Element range (including the element-Vs tablet app) so you can easily expand the functionality of your Tangent setup.”

Key features of Tangent Ripple:

– Three trackerballs with dials for masters.
– High resolution optical pick-ups for the balls and dials.
– Independent reset buttons for the balls and dials.
– Programmable A and B buttons.
– USB powered with integral cable.
– Lightweight and compact (600g and 325 x 148 x 52mm, specifically).

Pre-order the Ripple here for £250 (£300 inc VAT).
