You love editing. 

You can spend hours - if not days - inside the edit, so it's important you choose the best tools to help you become more productive than ever before.

The Backlit Keyboard in the Edit
The Backlit Keyboard in the Edit

That's why we've developed the brand new range of backlit keyboards, all designed for your editing software. In fact, it's the world's first backlit video/audio editing keyboard and we need your help to bring it to market.

How many times have you sat in a dark room editing, struggling to see the keyboard, or simply used a poor quality keyboard? We're getting rid of both of those problems today and you can be a part of this exciting journey.

Design

The keyboards are designed in England by the Editors Keys team and finalised in Copenhagen before they arrive on your doorstep, ready for editing action! 

The Keyboard Design Process

The keyboards feature beautiful icons, shortcut text and a clear typeface to make the editing process faster than ever before. The new back lights offer an amazing even spread of light across all keys, so you can read them clearly inside any room, no matter how light or dark the room is.

Risks and challenges

Luckily we've been in the business for a few years now so we think we have most challenges covered.

A large portion of the Kickstarter budget is going into some great packaging for the keyboards so we need to make sure they are fulfilled in time for the end of the project. We have taken on a new fulfilment centre ready to ship out the first batch of orders and are now training up the staff ready.
