The DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel from Blackmagic Design is a significant step up in functionality from the Micro or Mini panel. It consists of a main console and two auxiliary consoles, one on each side, as well as a slide-out keyboard in the center console. It enables one-touch access to virtually every control and parameter within the DaVinci Resolve software.
The center console incorporates four high-resolution, weighted trackballs and 30 soft, customizable control knobs for accessing color-correction tools in the Resolve software. The custom control knobs feature 4096 steps per rotation and push-button reset so you can achieve high-quality and precise color correction using the DaVinci Resolve system.
The Resolve control surface incorporates a slide-out keyboard that is useful when naming or renaming files, and it can be neatly tucked away when not in use. All functions are accessible via separate keys, such as the reference keys, and the fader T-bar that allows you to wipe between reference stills.
You can easily control the image sections via keys located for easy access at your natural hand positions. Lift, gamma, and gain adjustments along with RGB control are achieved via trackballs. Menus and indicators are visible via five high-resolution LCD displays that offer a view of functions of all the knobs and buttons. Soft knobs that can precisely control parameters via single touch are provided, and no electrical contact eliminates wearing out of the knobs. Aesthetically illuminated keys are backlit using RGB color and intensity. Complete control of project timeline or deck is offered via the jog/shuttle knob and transport controls.
Menus, Soft Keys, and Soft Knob Control
All Resolve panels have soft keys and variable control knobs within the LCD panel, which provide an accurate visual reference to the control without the risk of error.
The center panel has four trackballs, each with a surrounding control ring. The three trackballs to the left control lift, gamma, and gain when Resolve is set for primary grading. When in Log grading, they adjust lowlights, mid-tones, and highlights. The fourth trackball works similar to a mouse for moving the on-screen cursor. It can also be used to draw Power Windows, control color curve point position, and act as an offset control for the primary grade.

Increases or decreases overall image saturation; you can turn your color image into a grayscale image with this control.
The panel features a T-bar mix/wipe control and a number of menu and function keys. You can position the T-bar panel on either side of the Trackball panel.
The Transport panel features the timeline transport controls and a jog/shuttle control, as well as a numerical keypad and associated function keys. The Transport panel can be positioned on either side of the Trackball panel.
