New Logitech keyboard has creative input dial


Peripherals manufacturer Logitech has released a new keyboard known as CRAFT with a creative input dial.

A statement from the company said the dial, located at the top left-hand-side of the device, could be used to make adjustments while using programs like Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Office.

Called the Crown, the touch-sensitive aluminium dial recognises the application in use. A light touch is enough to access context-specific functions.

The Logitech Options software can be used to work with Photoshop CC, Abode Illustrator CC, Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Adobe InDesign CC and Microsoft PowerPoint, Excel and Word (Microsoft functionalities work on PC only right now).

The Crown can also be used to change desktops, navigate between apps, or adjust volume. One additional Crown function can be assigned in each favourite app.

“Our new flagship Logitech CRAFT keyboard is for all of us who spend time creating using Photoshop or building PowerPoint slides and want to work with greater precision and feel connected to their work," said Art O’Gnimh, global head of keyboards at Logitech.

"The creative input dial gives you instant access to the functions you need, the moment you need them, allowing you to increase your productivity. CRAFT puts you in your creative element – every time you sit at the desk.”

The CRAFT is expected to be in stores by the end of this month and has a suggested retail price of $299.95.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
