TOUCHDRIVE | THE NEXT-GENERATION CONTROL SURFACES FOR CARBONITE PRODUCTION SWITCHERS

TouchDriveTM  redefines the relationship between a Technical Director/Vision Mixer and their production switcher by bringing the same touch technology you know and love from your smartphone to video production switcher control surfaces – even gestures. Every display on the panel is touch-enabled. All of them. This allows features to be dropped

Control with Confidence

High-resolution, rich color touch displays provide clear visual cues to make source and device control faster. Whether you are configuring bus maps, assigning button functions, delegating key buses or selecting your next transition type, TouchDriveTM allows you to operate your control surface with absolute confidence.

Intuitive

The touch control menu allows operators to quickly and easily enable functions like panel mapping without having to step through menus. Operating on the TouchDriveTM control surface is so simple you may never need to open the manual.

Production Powerhouse

The built-in DashBoard computer provides tight integration between TouchDrive and all of your other devices so you can control an entire production. Playout XPression graphics, trigger Tria+ clips or switch Ultrix crosspoints through this incredibly powerful surface.

Secure Investment

TouchDriveTM works with Carbonite Ultra, Carbonite Black and Graphite systems, making it a sound investment for today and tomorrow.

A Panel for Any Production

From the ultra-portable TD1C to the uncompromising TD3S, the TouchDrive control surface comes in various panel sizes so you can choose the right fit for your budget and production requirement.

Surprisingly Familiar

Despite its many innovations and improvements, if you have switched on a Carbonite or Carbonite Black control surface, you will feel right at home on TouchDriveTM.

Feel the Difference with TouchDrive

TouchDrive is a new family of control surfaces that have been designed with the Technical Director/Vision Mixer at heart and will completely reinvigorate the relationship with their production switcher

Create bus maps with absolute ease. Select a crosspoint button, tap to open a Source Group, and select the source on the touch display. Done!

Built-in DashBoard

Imagine the power of DashBoard without the hassle of an external computer. TouchDrive is the first Carbonite control surface to incorporate a DashBoard computer right in the panel. Use our 15.6” touchscreen or a standard monitor – either way, DashBoard operations have never been easier.

Memory and Transition key-pads on the TouchDrive control surface

Memory Display

Move beyond mere numbers with descriptive Memory names. Add a list of included attributes such as ME/MiniME/Canvas selection and display the information on any touch display to confidently manage even complex productions.

TouchDrive TD3S Control Panel

The beautiful new TouchDriveTM TD3S control surface includes 25 crosspoint buttons and three full ME rows.

TouchDrive TD2S Control Panel

The TouchDriveTM TD2S 25-button, 2-ME row panel is a more space-conscious version of the larger TD3S. Like all TouchDriveTM control surfaces, the TD2S runs DashBoard natively, eliminating the need for an external computer.

TouchDrive TD2 Control Panel

The TouchDriveTM TD2 features 15 buttons and 2 ME rows. With a smaller footprint than the TD2S, the TD2 still provides a Global Memory system and the ability to map Memories to individual bus row buttons for fast, accurate recall.

TouchDrive TD1 Control Panel

Like its larger cousin, the TouchDriveTM TD1 also features 15 crosspoint buttons, but only a single ME row. This compact control surface provides the same functionality as larger TouchDriveTM panels, including the innovative 6-axis Joystick and user-configurable buttons.
