Elgato Stream Deck – Live Content Creation Controller

This product was recommended by David Alexander from Mazepress

I think the best keyboard for video editors is actually a companion keyboard called a StreamDeck. I use a Microsoft Studio Keyboard as my main keyboard and I have the Streamdeck next to it. This allows me to set up the Streamdecks customizable buttons with different icons so I can easily edit video without having to remember hotkeys. It’s also ideal if you need to travel and edit video on a laptop where you want to travel light. As the Streamdeck is small and compact and can easily fit in your laptop bag. You can also choose from 6 key, 15 key or 32 key versions, I personally use the 15 key model.
