Default Edius Keyboard Testers Required

Hi Guys,

I'm Mark B Brown, company director of Editors Keys. After hundreds of requests we have finally produced an Edius compatible Editors Keys keyboard.

However before we go into production, I'd really appreciate the help of a few Edius professionals in proof reading the design and double checking shortcuts are 100% correct.

We really appreciate the help and support you've given to us, and we require 5-10 testers. The volunteers will also each receive one of the keyboards free of charge when they are launched in 60 days.

Many thanks
Mark Brown

Any specific geographic location criteria for testers?

Is there a specific time window in which the testing is to take place; e.g., for 30 days starting ~15 October.

FYI:
My present Edius keyboard does not work anymore. It have a new system with a Sandybridge processor that is slightly overclocked.
An overclocked Sandybridge does not work with my Edius keyboard. The system will crash.

Maybe something to keep in mind when you start testing.

Gamers actually prefer PS/2-style keyboards over USB because the PS/2 keyboard timing is unaffected by overclocking the CPU. It's a problem with the system chipset, not USB itself. My Gigabyte X58-based motherboard allows overclocking without affecting the USB timing.

Use a USB to PS2 adapter, and that will probably solve your problem.

The problem is that PS/2 and other legacy connectors (parallel ports, serial ports, analog VGA) are quickly going the way of the Dodo bird. Most newer motherboards don't have them. So you either need good overclocking support in the BIOS to allow USB timings to be maintained, or you can't overclock (or at least not by much and/or reliably).

I have never heard of this. Might be why my USB ports are unreliable with flash card readers and Iphones etc.
