Euphonix introduced MC Color, a color grading surface that offers seamless control and integration with Apple’s Color 1.5. The slim-line MC Color attaches to the Mac via Ethernet and features high-res optical trackballs, trackwheels, displays, encoders and programmable keys to speed up and enhance the Apple Color workflow. Its compact design is portable enough for on-set grading, and it can be combined with other Euphonix media controllers to build a larger, integrated video editing control surface.
A key feature is EuCon, a high-speed Ethernet control protocol developed by Euphonix that Apple has natively integrated into the new Final Cut Studio, including Color 1.5. MC Color is constantly aware in which room of Color the user is working. It automatically updates MC Color’s controls and displays, including the nine programmable soft keys, to present the parameters specific to the current room.
