The Slate Control Surface from FilmLight builds on the same technological advances that we refined on the Blackboard 2 control surface, but in a size for multi-purpose post production facilities. The same adaptive keys, limitless encoders, responsive trackball system and even better display screens-but all in a panel half the size. As with Blackboard 2, the controls are context-sensitive. The keys are back-projected and adaptive to show you the functions available to you within your current operation. To allow multiple features to be supported, sets of buttons can be swapped into different modes quickly and easily. One of the most powerful features of Slate is the ability to define custom functionality using the Chalk utility. Chalk for Slate allows you to customize button layouts for Slate panels. You can select between preset button layouts, make your own unique layouts and also edit the functionality of individual buttons. The Slate control surface is ideally suited to working with the Baselight Editions within your editing or compositing system, but it's equally at home with the full Baselight color grading system or even with the Daylight system for on-set dailies and high-performance transcoding-it's portable by design.

2 display screens with user-controllable back light (800x240 pixels resolution)
66 x soft mapped, soft labelled push keys with user-controlled brightness
3 x infra-red, optical trackballs with bespoke 3rd axis rings
12 x limitless, rotary optical encoders with integral push switch
Adaptive Keys
All keys are soft-configured so that any operation can be assigned to any key, and have a dynamically displayed label or image that shows the exact context in every operation directly on the key.
Slate features twelve limitless optical encoders for rotary input. Each encoder has an integrated push switch for further operations.
Slate employs two display screens to give the colourist clear and instant feedback. They not only display the values for the current operation, but also show the flow of operations to assist in navigation with more complex tasks.
Context Controls
All controls vary in range, sensitivity and feedback depending on the operation. The function and labelling of keys, encoders and displays changes seamlessly with every operation. Slate only illuminates the active controls to speed up navigation.
Trackballs and rings
The trackballs feature a six-contact point mounting system, ensuring movement is easy in every direction, with bespoke third axis rings that float precisely under the lightest touch.
