Dell's new KB525C Wired Collaboration Keyboard is designed specifically for video conferencing software like Zoom and Microsoft Teams. It has dedicated buttons for common functions like muting audio and stopping video, and these keys are backlit to indicate audio or video status.

Today Dell announced a new tool specifically designed for remote workers who rely on video conferencing to get work done.

The Dell Wired Collaboration Keyboard (model number KB525C) is a standard USB wired keyboard with some handy dedicated hotkeys. The keyboard can connect via either USB-A or USB-C (which are packed into the same cable via a built-in adapter). It is a full-sized keyboard with the standard inverse "T" style of arrow keys and a full number pad on the right side.

What sets this keyboard apart is the set of dedicated video conference keys above the number pad. There are keys for muting audio, turning video on and off, starting a screen share, and opening chat. The keys for muting audio and video also have a red and white backlight to indicate when audio is turned off or on, respectively. These keys are compatible with both Zoom and Microsoft Teams. 

The function row also features additional hotkeys for controlling volume, media playback, and more. These keys can be reprogrammed to alternative key combinations. There is also a dedicated Copilot key.

The keyboard is made from 65% post-consumer recycled plastic and features Dell's silent keys (as seen in the company's Silent Keyboard). 

As of press time, Dell did not announce when the keyboard would be available or what pricing would be upon release.
