Video editing is specialized enough that it demands its own peripherals. A jog wheel is arguably the most important, making it easier to zip too and fro, and locate specific points for editing. CodeAct, a Korean manufacturer that offers a series of GR labeled video editing tools, offers a solution: the GR100--a keyboard with a built-in jog wheel.
Design of the GR100 is nothing special. Layout is pretty standard, with the obligatory 105-keys, and a built-in three port USB hub. The illuminated jog wheel sits on the right, along with a set of special function keys for video editing, but these can be remapped for other duties. The GR100 integrates nicely with CodeAct’s video editing software: GReditor, GRplayer, and GRencoder.
But at $274 (¥ 24,500.00), it seems a bit on the pricey side. Bella Professional Series keyboards also offers a jog wheel, and prices from $19 to $149. And, given the right-handed preference of these jog wheel keyboards, there’s always the standalone option, such as Griffin Technology’s PowerMate. (And is easier to replace should it fail.)
Still, the GR100 does come in some pretty cool colors: snow white, metallic sliver, orange, sky blue, light green, gentle gold, deep blue, as well as black. As of now, the GR100 is only available at GeekStuff4U.
