The precision pad measures 14.33 x 7.18 inches, which is approximately the size of a computer keyboard. It has an iPad Pro mounting slot and connects via either Bluetooth or USB-C.

Blackmagic says that many of the other controls on the right and left sides of the new panel — such as static scanning, cursor, and selection — can typically only be found on the larger Mini and Advanced panels. She says she kept many of the controls in the same position as on the larger panels, to keep things familiar for editors.
