IntuiKey Series Keyboards
The IntuiKey Series keyboards are full function,
multipurpose keyboards used for system control and
programming. The IntuiKey includes an integral
variable speed pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) joystick and a
splash resistant design. An optional rack mount kit
allows the IntuiKey to be mounted in a standard EIA
48 cm (19 in.) rack.
The IntuiKey Digital Keyboard is available in two
models, KBD-Universal and KBD-Digital. The Universal
version can be connected to an Allegiant switcher and
either Divar Digital Video Recorders or System4
Multiplexers at the same time. This capability
eliminates the need for multiple keyboards. The KBDDigital version supports Divar Digital Video Recorders
and System4 Multiplexers. Both types can be used
with the Bosch VMS and with the VIDOS video
management systems.
The IntuiKey accepts both the standard Allegiant
RS-485 Keyboard protocol and the Allegiant RS-232
protocol. The Allegiant RS-232 Keyboard protocol is
well suited when communicating to a remote KBDUniversal over an IP network.

Backlit keys and easy-to-read displays

Multilingual support
The IntuiKey can also operate in a Terminal mode
using a special RS-232 protocol. This mode allows
third-party integrators and internal developers to use
the IntuiKey as a customizable user interface.1
The main Allegiant switcher, the Divar Digital Video
Recorder, or the System4 Multiplexer provides power
when used in a local configuration. At remote
distances, an optional auxiliary power supply (sold
separately) provides power.
The keyboard is connected to a system using a
supplied 3 m (10 ft) cable. Simply attach the keyboard
and the system is operational. No additional
programming is required.
The IntuiKey's soft keys provide a menu-driven system
for ease of use. The soft keys make it easy for new
operators to program and control even the largest
systems without memorizing system commands.
The IntuiKey features a quick selection menu function,
providing immediate access to the most commonly
used screen displays.
The IntuiKey also features a user-friendly menu tree
approach for programming all advanced system and
camera settings. Languages available via the IntuiKey
unit are English, Spanish, Dutch, French, German,
Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Turkish, Hungarian,
Swedish, Finnish, and Danish. Additional languages
