The INTELLICOMMANDER™ Keyboard for Lyric is an advanced control surface that creates a customized user experience that merges ergonomics with accurate control.

Derived from our renowned Duet keyboard and years of understanding manual playback, the INTELLICOMMANDER™ takes usability to the next level.

Designed for Live Production

The INTELLICOMMANDER Keyboard is developed for operators, and is specifically-designed for fast playback. Its dedicated keys are positioned ergonomically for easy access and accurate playout.


All keys have integrated backlights with intensity adjustments for optimum viewing in all lighting conditions.

Optimized QWERTY Mechanical Keyboard

The keys are a hybrid mechanical/dome construction offering longevity and a superior level of tactile feedback with the weighted feel of a mechanical spring-loaded switch.

In addition to the normal QWERTY keys there are ChyronHego-specific function keys. These are lighter grey keys and provide application specific functions for fast manual playback, easily accessible within the QWERTY section.

Also included, a new single Play-To-Air button and dedicated Effect-Out buttons.

21 Flex Keys

Two banks of 21 Flex Keys: These clearly-visible, dedicated keys make live playout faster, simpler, and more accurate with Lyric-specific functions including dedicated channel selection.


The INTELLICOMMANDER keyboard is designed with the needs of live production operators and designers in mind. 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 all of the keys are all back-lit.

USB Connectivity

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.
