Livid Instruments announced on Friday the release of
Tactic, a hardware device that works with the included software to allow video DJs to mix and edit digital video in real-time. Tactic is made of handcrafted wood and features a USB connection, 16 buttons and knobs that can be assigned different functions, six buttons for triggering effects and 36 tactile buttons that let you rapidly trigger effects. The software offers a preview screen that monitors video clips and camera feeds as well as programmable sliders, buttons, wheels and knobs. As MacCentral posted this article, Livid had not yet posted system requirements or pricing for Tactic.
