MOUNTAIN, creator of innovative, premium peripherals with user-centric design to enable gamers and content creators to perform at their best, expands its eco-system of premium peripherals with the launch of the MOUNTAIN Keypad series in the form of MOUNTAIN DisplayPad and MOUNTAIN MacroPad. True to the core pillars of MOUNTAIN, DisplayPad and MacroPad are packed with innovative features, deliver peak performance, feature a stylish and ergonomic design and offer unparalleled customization.
Modularity, flexibility, and freedom of choice are at the heart of MOUNTAIN’s design philosophy, which is why DisplayPad and MacroPad were developed to be used either together with the Everest Max or Core keyboard to create a powerful command center, or standalone with the included sturdy anti-slip base. Following 4 years of meticulous software development, after the integration of dedicated controls for popular creative software and services such as Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Illustrator, DaVinci Resolve, Twitch, and OBS Studio, MOUNTAIN opens a new chapter.
The company takes the next step to maximize the use of the ever-evolving Base Camp foundation in the form of software-enabled high-end streaming and content creation controllers for ambitious gamers and creative professionals.
On the hardware side, both MOUNTAIN Keypads offer a sturdy and sleek aluminium frame and go above with features unique in their segment. DisplayPad overcomes mushy, unresponsive buttons with crisp and tactile high resolution Display Keys. MacroPad comes equipped with MOUNTAIN Tactile 55 switches, which aren’t just factory-lubed, but also hot-swappable with any other Cherry MX-style switch.
DisplayPad features 12 freely customizable and tactile Display Keys with a resolution of 104×104 pixels per key. Using the company’s Base Camp management software, DisplayPad can take full advantage of the aforementioned integration of controls for third party services and applications.
The “Folder” feature pushes usability beyond 12 Display Keys, allowing users to create folders of functions and thus effectively additional layers, creating virtually infinite possibilities. A wide range of supported image formats, including animated GIFs, make sure that users will not lose track of their user-defined functions setup.
MacroPad offers 12 freely customizable mechanical keys, based on MOUNTAIN’s popular and factory-lubricated Tactile 55 switches. Per-key RGB illumination ensures it not only integrates perfect in terms of functionality, but also in style.
Being hot-swappable, the switches can be swapped for any other 3-pin or 5-pin Cherry MX-style switch.
“MOUNTAIN’s vision is to provide the gear for gamers, streamers, and content creators to perform at their best, and the new Keypad Series is a testament to that,” says Tobias Brinkmann, Founder and CEO of MOUNTAIN. “DisplayPad enables a whole new level of customizability while MacroPad goes beyond the beaten paths of conventional pads by offering hot-swappable mechanical switches.”
“The Keypad Series is a natural expansion of the MOUNTAIN portfolio, utilizing and expanding upon the functionality Base Camp offers for users to achieve peak performance” added Bram Rongen, Head of Product at MOUNTAIN. “With near unlimited customization options, flexible mounting system, high quality materials, and modular cabling, the Keypad Series furthers our portfolio of innovative high-end solutions.”
