Avid Artist Color Control Surface Details

When it comes to color grading, using a mouse can leave you seeing redâ?"literally. With the compact, ergonomic Artist Color, you gain deep hands-on control to get the look you're afterâ?"with great precision and speed. Whether you use Color, Smoke for Mac, STORM, or REDCINE-X, you get the superior feel and control of high-end grading hardware at a fraction of the cost, plus unparalleled access to all software color functions. And with programmable Soft Keys, you can customize the surface to speed your workflow.

Artist Color features EUCON (Extended User Control), a high-speed open control protocol that has been adopted by many of the worldâ??s leading software developers. Apple Color, Autodesk Smoke, RED REDCINE-X, The Foundry STORM, and other applications support EUCON, giving you highly responsive control over almost all software functions. You gain a tightly connected experience in which the control surface acts and feels like a physical extension of your software.

With Artist Color, you gain deep, integrated control over your favorite EUCON-enabled creative applications. EUCON carries high-resolution control information for trackballs, trackwheels, knobs, displays, and more between Artist Color and whatever application is in focus on your computer. This enables you to quickly switch between multiple applicationsâ?"and even workstationsâ?"at the touch of a button, with all controls and displays automatically matching the selected application.

With three highly responsive optical trackballs and trackwheels at your fingertips, you get the same tactile feedback and precision usually found on only high-end color grading solutions. You can even toggle the center trackball on the fly to work as a mouseâ?"your hands never have to leave the surface during grading. You can also adjust the control sensitivity directly from the surface to suit your preferences.

Easily view parameter names and values on the six 128 x 64-pixel OLED displays as you make changes with the trackballs, trackwheels, and six encoders. These displays also show you room or view names when in NAV Mode.

Play, stop, go forward or backward, jump to the next clip or previous clip, and more using dedicated transport controls that provide effortless project navigation. You can also use the Soft Keys to trigger additional transport and navigation functions for even greater flexibility in editing and navigating your project.

Because Artist Series controllers are modular, you can combine them in a variety of configurations to suit your workflow. Customize your Artist Series system with up to one Artist Control, four Artist Mixes, one Artist Transport, and one Artist Color for total flexibility. Simply clip the units together to form a seamless surfaceâ?"or use them separatelyâ?"as each has its own Ethernet connection.
