A flexible control surface for color correction and editing, the JL Cooper Eclipse CX Midnight interfaces directly with DaVinci Resolve, Snell Archangel PH.C-HD, and is compatible with virtually any program running under OSX using proprietary software that is a free download from JL Cooper. The Eclipse CX Midnight is an update to the original Eclipse CX, featuring an all black finish with white LEDs to minimize the control panel's impact on your eyes. The control panel is designed to provide tactile controls of the functions in Resolve, obviating the need for mouse control and speeding your workflow.
Three translucent trackballs with integrated control rings are familiar tools to colorists, allowing them to make precise adjustments to multiple color channels at the same time. Six high-resolution rotary encoders provide control over a variety of DaVinci's built-in effects, and each of the high-resolution encoders, as well as the trackballs and control rings have their own individual reset buttons. 41-illuminated function keys, 7-edit keys, 3-VF displays options for your monitor provide flexibility to your workflow. The Eclipse's LED timecode display, VCR-style transport buttons with status indicators, and an optically encoded jog/wheel with concentric shuttle ring provide precise tape deck-like control of your digital video. An expander connector allows you to connect other Eclipse control surfaces for more control options when working in software other than Resolve or Archangel PH.C-HD.
Downloadable software allows you to control programs other than Resolve, when using the optional Ethernet card; this allows you to control functions of optional programs that run on OSX such as Final Cut Pro X, Iridas Speed Grade, IFX Piranha Cinema HD, and Apple Color.
