The Wave offers a comprehensive range of controls on a single panel at an affordable price.

Ergonomic design

Stylish enough to look good in any grading suite and compact enough to be used for on-set grading, you'll find all the controls you'd expect from a colour grading panel without compromising on the essential ergonomics. The wave features crisp, easy to read, ice-white OLED displays and custom trackerball units based on a non-contacting optical pickup.

Extensive support

Most of our software partners have released versions of their applications which support the Wave. When the Wave is used with the Tangent Mapper* you can even customise the layout of the controls.

*see the Application Support tab to see if your application supports the Tangent Mapper.
