Work faster and get more creative control
 than ever before with professional hardware control panels!

Control Summary

Exotic locations, far off places, and even entire worlds are created on the stages and inside the computers of major Hollywood film studios. Bringing it all together and making it look real requires the most powerful tools and the highest quality image processing. While DaVinci Resolve can be used as a stand alone software tool, adding a hardware control panel lets you work faster than ever before, while also dramatically expanding your creative options. Developed in collaboration with the leading post production facilities around the world, DaVinci Resolve is the only solution that gives colorists the tactile control they need to create realistic images that make us believe in what we see on television and the silver screen!

Color Adds Emotion to your Images

Color Adds Emotion to your Images

DaVinci Resolve control panels are designed to give you fluid, hands-on control over multiple parameters at the same time, so you can work faster and be more creative. The hardware controls are placed logically near your natural hand positions and are made out of the highest quality materials. You get smooth, high resolution weighted trackballs for making precise adjustments. All knobs, dials and buttons have been custom designed to feature the perfect amount of resistance, so you can accurately fine tune any parameter. Best of all, the hardware panels allow you to adjust multiple settings, such as lift, gamma and gain, all at the same time, giving you a level of creative control that goes far beyond what’s possible with a mouse.

With three panels to choose from, it’s easy to find one that fits perfectly on your job. The large DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel is perfect for dedicated color correction suites and grading theaters where professional colorists work all day. The DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel is perfect when you need to switch between color and editing work, or for freelance artists that need a feature rich portable panel they can move between jobs. The DaVinci Resolve Micro Panel is incredibly small but professional. It fits perfectly next to a keyboard for simultaneous editing and color grading, and is great for use with a laptop for on location grading! All 3 panels have controls in similar positions, so it’s even easy to move between systems running different panels!

Primary Correction Creative Controls

To take your color grading to the next creative level, the DaVinci Resolve Mini and Micro panels include 12 dedicated primary color correction control knobs. These are designed to make it easy for you to stylize the look of your images and generate precise “film looks.” All knobs can be pressed to instantly reset the control. That’s perfect for when you are trying an exciting new style but get a bit lost. Simply press the knobs to reset!

Y Lift

Y Lift

Adjust the contrast of the image in the darker areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. This adjustment is great for a changing the black point without changing saturation.

Y Gamma

Adjust the contrast of the image in the mid-tone areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. This control helps add depth to shots, along with extra vibrancy.

Y Gain

Adjust the contrast of the image in the brighter areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. You can reduce hot shots or pull the whites to make the shot look more angelic!

Contrast

Contrast

Increase contrast to make the blacks darker and the whites brighter, or decrease contrast to do the opposite. Use this to improve the dynamic range and make shots pop!

Pivot

Changes the center of tonality about which dark and bright parts of the image are stretched or narrowed during a contrast adjustment.

Mid-tone Detail

Increases the contrast of regions of the image with high edge detail to increase or decrease the perception of image sharpness and definition or when lowered regions of the image with low amounts of detail are softened while areas of high detail are left untouched. Great for softening facial features and popular for beauty shots.

Color Boost

Color Boost

Naturally raise the saturation in regions of the image with low saturation while leaving properly saturated areas alone. Sometimes referred to as a vibrance operation, this is great for adding color without over saturating the image.

Shadows

Selectively lighten or darken shadow detail. Raising this value retrieves shadow detail while leaving the mid-tones untouched.

Highlights

Easily retrieve blown out highlight detail in high dynamic range media by lowering this parameter to achieve a smooth blend between the retrieved highlights and the unadjusted mid tones for a natural result.

Saturation

Saturation

Increases or decreases overall image saturation. At higher values, colors appear more intense, while at lower values color intensity diminishes and can be adjusted until all color is gone, leaving a grayscale image.

Hue

Rotates all hues of the image around the full perimeter of the color wheel. The default setting is 50, which retains the original unaffected distribution of hues.

Luminance Mix

Control the balance between the YRGB adjustments and Y only adjustments made using the Y channel lift, gamma and gain controls in the primaries palette or the un-ganged luma curve.

Professional Trackballs

Professional Trackballs

Trackballs provide RGB balance adjustments for lift, gamma and gain, each with a master level control. The Advanced panel also features a dedicated RGB offset and master gain trackball to adjust the color balance and brightness of the entire image. The trackballs can be set to work in either log or RGB with the touch of a button.

Illuminated Keys

With the push of a button you can easily access tools such as the RAW palette, primary color correctors, curves, qualifiers, windows, tracker and more.

Still Store Reference Management

Still Store Reference Management

Colorists constantly grab and play stills to compare grades using the gallery. The DaVinci Resolve Advanced, Mini and Micro panels have dedicated keys to quickly save and recall stills. On the DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel you can also use the fader T-bar to wipe between saved stills and your grading timeline.

Transport Controls
