The Avid Media Composer Backlit Keyboard from Editors Keys is a wired USB keyboard that provides you with faster video editing capabilities than a typical keyboard. This keyboard gives you fast access to all of the Avid Media Composer tools, saving you the hassle of referring to manuals, menus, and tool-bars. Each key has a standard letter or symbol for typing; however, most of the keys are colored and labeled with a shortcut text to speed up the editing process. In addition, all of the keys are illuminated so you can clearly see them in a dimly lit or darken environment.

    Avid Media Composer Backlit Keyboard is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay for Editing but Not Typing I purchased these keyboards to replace several Sejin Electronic Inc SKR-2233 keyboards that had some missing function buttons. Those keyboards have lasted 6 years of constant abuse by students in a Newsroom and lab. But I have not been able to find replacements for them. Because our newsroom often goes dark while people are working in it (due to occupational sensors), I thought these backlit keyboards might be helpful. The keys are not well defined physically so I am not sure where my figures are going to hit. I like keys with a little more separation between them and a little more height. These keys are very flat and low profile. I am finding that I make too many errors on the keys once I get them initially placed. The feet on the bottom are tiny and do not put much of an angle on the keyboard. I don't know if this is good or bad ergonomically, but it doesn't feel comfortable to me when it sits on top of my desk. Basically, I would consider this a flat keyboard. If you need one that had an angle to it, consider others. The keys themselves feel a little sticky on top, like the paint isn't quite dry. But over time, this reduced. The paint sheen is easily changed with a wipe of the finger nails but they seem to hold up to use without fading. The emblems are not quite the same as pictured on the website. For instance, the Play/Stop is not on the space bar (which is not really a big deal). The backlight turns on and off with the Scroll key (top row). I find the backlight to be very functional for an editor, who will tend to be in subdued light. The backlight is very blue and not full spectrum. Therefore, the blue keys are rather bright while the red is very dark and V and B are black so they are not easily seen. It is very difficult to see a color difference between the yellow and orange keys. Since the keyboard lays flat, if the keyboard is on a high table top, the backlight shows under the keys causing glare. If the person is over the top (such as when the keyboard is in a keyboard tray) the backlights are covered and there is no glare. I purchased 5 of these keyboards directly from the manufacturer. They were shipped directly from the UK. One of them was missing screws in the back. The company has not responded to an email request for replacement screws. A few of the keys are a little squeaky, especially the backspace key. And now, after about a month of use, the backspace key is sticking. I do not see these keys being able to handle the constant attack for writing news stories. So in conclusion, if this keyboard is used strictly for editing and not long term typing, they might be quite functional. However, if you type a lot of text, such as in a Newsroom, I do not recommend these keyboards.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks the part and acts like a keyboard I'm a Post Production engineer and bought this to see if our editors liked them. They still prefer the old style Avid keyboards (now out of manufacture), though were happy with these. The illumination doesn't really help visibility, but it would certainly help for an overall cool aesthetic in an edit room. Basic functionality operates as expected. Button action is good. Build is plastic, but sturdy.
