Bella DV Keyboard 3
Bella has unveiled the DV Keyboard 3, a desktop keyboard with built-in controls for video editing and other creative work. Central to the design is a jog wheel that can scrub through audio and video clips; the wheel and accompanying buttons can also be used for more general tasks such as scrolling through documents, Bella says. The keyboard also sports two USB 2.0 ports for attaching iPods and other peripherals, and can be bundled with a NeoLite gooseneck lamp add-on to illuminate the keyboard in a dark studio. The DV Keyboard 3 is compatible with both Macs and Windows PCs and is qualified for use with several major video editing programs such as Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and Sony's Vegas. It ships later in November for $130.
