MOUNTAIN Launches DisplayPad and MacroPad Streaming and Content Creation Controllers

MOUNTAIN, maker of innovative, high-performance peripherals with a user-centric design to empower gamers and content creators to perform at their best, is expanding its ecosystem 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, stylish and ergonomic design, and offer unparalleled customization options.

Modularity, flexibility and freedom of choice are at the heart of MOUNTAIN’s design philosophy. That’s why DisplayPad and MacroPad have been 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 non-slip base. After 4 years of painstaking software development, after integrating 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 is taking the next step to maximize the use of its ever-evolving Base Camp foundation in the form of software-driven high-end streaming and content creation controllers for aspiring gamers and creative professionals.

As for the hardware, both MOUNTAIN keyboards offer a sturdy and slim aluminum frame and continue with features that are unique in their segment. DisplayPad overcomes mushy, unresponsive buttons with clear and tactile, high-resolution display keys. MacroPad is equipped with MOUNTAIN Tactile 55 switches, which are not only factory-lubricated but also hot-swappable with any other Cherry MX-style switch.

DisplayPad has 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” function pushes usability beyond 12 soft keys, allowing users to create folders of functions and thus effectively create additional layers, creating virtually infinite possibilities. A wide range of supported image formats, including animated GIFs, ensure that users don’t lose sight of their user-defined features.

MacroPad offers 12 freely customizable mechanical keys, based on MOUNTAIN’s popular factory-lubricated Tactile 55 switches. Per-key RGB lighting ensures that it integrates perfectly not only in terms of functionality, but also in style.

Since they are hot-swappable, the switches can be swapped out for any other 3-pin or 5-pin Cherry MX style switch.

“MOUNTAIN’s vision is to equip gamers, streamers and content creators to perform at their best, and the new Keypad series is a testament to that,” said Tobias Brinkmann, founder and CEO of MOUNTAIN. “DisplayPad enables a whole new level of customizability, while MacroPad goes beyond the beaten track of conventional pads by offering hot-swappable mechanical switches.”

“The Keypad series is a natural extension of the MOUNTAIN portfolio, leveraging the functionality that Base Camp provides for users to achieve peak performance,” added Bram Rongen, Head of Product at MOUNTAIN. “With almost unlimited customization options, flexible mounting system, high-quality materials and modular cabling, the Keypad series furthers our portfolio of innovative high-end solutions.”
