The Artist Transport from Avid is a compact media controller enabling project navigation and precise edit control with one hand. The Artist Transport connects to your edit system via Ethernet cable, and interfaces with a large array of available audio and video software via EUCON, HUI, and Mackie Control Protocols. From rapid shuttling to fine editing control, the weighted data wheel and springloaded shuttle ring provide you with both an analog feel and precise control over your editing timeline.
The six programmable soft keys and seven programmable edit control buttons allow you to configure your Artist Transport to suit your needs and workflow. The integrated keypad provides for quick numeric entry, and can be additional programmable soft keys. Weighing only 2.6 lb, with a smaller footprint than a 13" laptop, this unit is compact, portable and good for use with a laptop or a fully fitted editing studio.
Timecode, as well as soft key functions can be displayed on the integrated OLED display. The Artist Transport can be combined with other control surfaces in the Artist series for additional controls, and the modular design allows you to customize your control panel layout.
