21 Fast Access Keys (Intelligent Keys): Backlit LCD relegendable keys that can display monochrome 24 x 32 pixel bitmaps. Each Fast Access Key can be individually configured with a bitmap and one of three background colors (red, yellow or green) or off. This allows the FlexKeys to provide application and even scene/message level customization.
The LCD screen provides a region for application-specific user prompts and status using a backlit 128×64 pixel display.
OPTIMIZED QWERTY MECHANICAL KEYBOARD
Innovative QWERTY keys – designed with the Lyric graphics operator in mind: The keys are a hybrid mechanical/dome construction offering the tactile weighted feel of a mechanical spring-loaded switch along with the immunity to environmental factors that a dome switch provides. The keys have integrated backlights with intensity adjustments for optimum viewing in all lighting conditions.
In addition to the normal QWERTY keys there are ChyronHego-specific function keys. These are the lighter grey keys and provide application specific functions, easily accessible within the QWERTY section.
The INTELLICOMMANDER Keyboard for Lyric is designed for live production operators and designers. Its unibody solid aluminum construction ensures that it can handle the pressures of day to day operations. Weighing 7 lbs, the keyboard remains solidly on the desk without sliding under use. The integrated wrist rest and tri-level adjustable rear feet ensure that all users can set up the keyboard in an ergonomically optimal configuration. Even visibility has been considered as the Qwerty Keys, FlexKeys and LCD screen are all back lit and brightness configurable.
The INTELLICOMMANDER Keyboard is a USB 2.0 device. It is much more than just a standard Keyboard – it is a customizable USB workflow tool which includes a downstream accessory USB port for thumb drives, mice, and more. The optional USB accessory port is exposed by default, and its use can be optionally disabled.
When the keyboard in plugged into a windows PC, it will function as a standard QWERTY keyboard with no need for any special drivers. To enable the advanced functions of the keyboard, a ChyronHego Keyboard Driver is required. This driver exposes the basic functions of the keyboard to ChyronHego product applications and enables the advanced control surface.
