Blackmagic Design Announces Four New Products, Including DaVinci Resolve Studio 172 min readReading Time: 2 minutes
Blackmagic Design has unveiled the next version of DaVinci Resolve. DaVinci Resolve 17 will be packed with over 300 new features and improvements including HDR grading tools, redesigned primary color controls, next generation Fairlight audio engine including Fairlight audio core and support for 2,000 real time audio tracks plus dozens of other time saving tools for editors including a redesigned inspector, new bin sorting and metadata clip views.
Blackmagic Design has also announced DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor, a new keyboard for DaVinci Resolve’s cut page that allows a new and dramatically faster editing solution that’s a combination of integrated hardware and software. This means the editor can work much faster because, unlike a mouse, the DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor has a control for each edit function and can perform multiple tasks at the same time. The keyboard is currently priced at SGD425.
In addition, for a limited time, every customer who purchases DaVinci Resolve Studio from a Blackmagic Design reseller will get the DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor included free of charge. For this period, all sales of Resolve Studios should be bundled with the Speed Editor in line with the promo. Partners are not supposed to de-bundle and sell them separately. If we receive feedback that this is done, partners will be terminated from representing BMD.
Rounding up the announcements are the new Fairlight Desktop Console and Fairlight HDMI Monitor Interface. The Fairlight Desktop Console is a portable audio control surface featuring 12 incredibly high quality touch sensitive flying faders, built in LCDs above each channel strip for pan and effects control, and full automation control. The Fairlight Desktop Console also features an innovative HDMI interface for connecting a monitor to view an expanded graphical interface with audio status and metering. Fairlight Desktop Console will be available in December from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide. It is currently priced at SGD 4,975.
The new Fairlight HDMI Monitor Interface lets customers use any HDMI or SDI television or computer monitor with the large Fairlight Studio Consoles. Fairlight customers often love to customise their large audio consoles and even design their own custom desks and studio furniture, so this new converter will let them use any display to get real time Fairlight graphics user interface with channel status and full audio level metering.
