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 tactile control they need to create realistic images that make us believe in what we see on television and the silver screen!

DaVinci 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.

With three panels to choose from, it’s easy to find one that fits perfectly on your job. The large DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel is perfect for dedicated color correction suites and grading theatres where professional colorists work all day. The DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel is perfect when you need to switch between color and editing work, or for freelance artists that need a feature-rich portable panel they can move between jobs. The DaVinci Resolve Micro Panel is incredibly small but professional. It fits perfectly next to a keyboard for simultaneous editing and color grading, and is great for use with a laptop for on location grading! All 3 panels have controls in similar positions, so it’s even easy to move between systems running different panels!

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 color correction tools. Above the centre, the trackball is keyed for switching between the log and offset color correction, as well as a key to display DaVinci Resolve’s full-screen viewer, which is great for use with laptops. Eighteen dedicated keys on the right side also give you access to the most commonly used grading features and playback controls. DaVinci Resolve Micro Panel is perfect for independent editors and colorists that need a truly portable solution, great on set to create looks and evaluate color and lighting, ideal for quickly grading video in broadcast trucks, great for education and much more!

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 color LCD screens that display menus, controls and parameter settings for the selected tool, along with direct access buttons that let you go directly to the menus for specific DaVinci features. The DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel is ideal for editors and colorists that need to regularly switch between editing and color grading, or for freelance colorists that need to take their panel with them when moving between facilities! The mini panel is also great for colorists working on location shoots, for corporate and event videographers, houses of worship and more!

For the ultimate in speed, power and control, get the DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel! The Advanced panel has been designed in collaboration with professional colorists to work together in total harmony with the software. This large panel consists of left, centre, and right consoles that give you quick, one-touch access to virtually every parameter and control in the software.

The DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel lets colorists instinctively reach out and touch every part of the image, adjusting multiple parameters simultaneously with complete responsiveness for a smooth grading experience. When you’re working with a client over your shoulder on a tight deadline, you need the DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel!

To take your color grading to the next creative level, the DaVinci Resolve Mini and Micro panels include 12 dedicated primary color correction control knobs. These are designed to make it easy for you to stylize the look of your images and generate precise “film looks.” All knobs can be pressed to instantly reset the control. That’s perfect for when you are trying an exciting new style but get a bit lost. Simply press the knobs to reset!

The DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel and DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel feature bright full-colour displays allowing full control over the massive creative toolset built into DaVinci Resolve. The displays show menus for the soft knobs and soft keys, as well as visual feedback of the knob adjustments in real time. Menus update to the current toolset automatically as you use DaVinci so you get the quickest and most direct keys to every feature, and you never waste time searching through long complicated menus.

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 the touch of a button.

The buttons and keys on the DaVinci Resolve control panels illuminate when selected so you can easily see which controls are active. On the Advanced and Mini panels, the keys are also backlit, making it easy to clearly see each button in a dimly lit suite!

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.

The DaVinci Resolve Advanced and Mini panels include dedicated feature buttons that let you quickly change tools so you don’t have to switch back and forth between the mouse and panel. With the push of a button, you can easily access tools such as the RAW palette, primary color correctors, curves, qualifiers, windows, tracker and more.

Colorists constantly grab and play stills to compare grades using the gallery. The DaVinci Resolve Advanced, Mini and Micro panels have dedicated keys to quickly save and recall skills. On the DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel, you can also use the fader T-bar to wipe between saved stills and your grading timeline.

The DaVinci Resolve Micro Panel is fully powered via USB so you can simply plug and play to get up and running. Power over USB means you can use it with a laptop and it will operate from the laptop’s battery, making it ideal for on set grading. The DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel also includes ethernet so it can operate via your network, making it fantastic for larger facilities. Plus, the Ethernet PoE support means it can even power itself via the network connection so you don’t need to plug in the power connection!
