Work faster and get more creative control than ever before with professional hardware control panels!Exotic locations, far off places, and even entire worlds are created on the stages and inside the computers of major Hollywood film studios. Bringing it all together and making it look real requires the most powerful tools and the highest quality image processing. While DaVinci Resolve can be used as a stand alone software tool, adding a hardware control panel lets you work faster than ever before, while also dramatically expanding your creative options. Developed in collaboration with the leading post production facilities around the world, DaVinci Resolve control panels give colorists the control they need to create realistic images that make Blackmagic Design's believe in what they see on television and the silver screen!
Color Adds Emotion to your ImagesDaVinci Resolve control panels are designed to give you fluid, hands-on control over multiple parameters at the same time, so you can work faster and be more creative. The hardware controls are placed logically near your natural hand positions and are made out of the highest quality materials. You get smooth, high resolution weighted trackballs for making precise adjustments. All knobs, dials and buttons have been custom designed to feature the perfect amount of resistance, so you can accurately fine tune any parameter. Best of all, the hardware panels allow you to adjust multiple settings, such as lift, gamma and gain, all at the same time, giving you a level of creative control that goes far beyond what’s possible with a mouse.

Y LiftAdjust the contrast of the image in the darker areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. This adjustment is great for changing the black point without changing saturation.
ContrastIncrease contrast to make the blacks darker and the whites brighter, or decrease contrast to do the opposite. Use this to improve the dynamic range and make shots pop!
Y GammaAdjust the contrast of the image in the mid-tone areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. This control helps add depth to shots, along with extra vibrancy.
PivotChanges the center of tonality about which dark and bright parts of the image are stretched or narrowed during a contrast adjustment.
Y GainAdjust the contrast of the image in the brighter areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. You can reduce hot shots or pull the whites to make the shot look more angelic!
Mid-tone DetailIncreases the contrast of regions of the image with high edge detail to increase or decrease the perception of image sharpness and definition or when lowered regions of the image with low amounts of detail are softened while areas of high detail are left untouched. Great for softening facial features and popular for beauty shots.
Color BoostNaturally raise the saturation in regions of the image with low saturation while leaving properly saturated areas alone. Sometimes referred to as a vibrance operation, this is great for adding color without over saturating the image.
SaturationIncreases or decreases overall image saturation. At higher values, colors appear more intense, while at lower values color intensity diminishes and can be adjusted until all color is gone, leaving a grayscale image.
ShadowsSelectively lighten or darken shadow detail. Raising this value retrieves shadow detail while leaving the mid-tones untouched.
HueRotates all huesof the image around the full perimeter of the color wheel. The default setting is 50, which retains the original unaffected distribution of hues.
HighlightsEasily retrieve blown out highlight detail in high dynamic range media by lowering this parameter to achieve a smooth blend between the retrieved highlights and the unadjusted mid tones for a natural result.
Luminance MixControl the balance between the YRGB adjustments and Y only adjustments made using the Y channel lift, gamma and gain controls in the primaries palette or the un-ganged luma curve.
- Professional Trackballs: Trackballs provide RGB balance adjustments for lift, gamma and gain, each with a master level control. The Advanced panel also features a dedicated RGB offset and master gain trackball to adjust the color balance and brightness of the entire image. The trackballs can be set to work in either log or RGB with thetouch of a button.
- Illuminated Keys: The buttons and keys on the DaVinci Resolve control panels illuminate when selected so you can easily see which controls are active.
- Soft Knobs: With 30 customizable soft knobs on the DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel and 8 on the Mini panel, you get super high resolution, flexible parameter adjustments that you can reset back to the default with a simple push.
- Still Store Reference Management: Colorists constantly grab and play stills to compare grades using the gallery. The DaVinci Resolve Micro panel have dedicated keys to quickly save and recall stills.
- Transport Controls: The play forward, reverse and stop transport keys on all the panels give you full control of your project timeline or deck while the Advanced panel adds a jog/shuttle knob for faster and more precise scrubbing.
- Slide Out Keyboard: Use the DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel’s slide out keyboard when you
