This keyboard has Japanese layout. Note the very short space bar. This is actually superior design than normal USA layout, because, huge space key is a waste of space. See: Tiny Space Bar on Japanese Keyboards.

The traditional huge space bar came from mechanical type writers, and habit dictate since. See: Computer Keyboard Design Flaws.

The Sony BKE-2011 Editing Keyboard is the keyboard used on the Sony BVE-2000 linear edit system, and possibly others. While it does employ Topre switches, it is likely that the keyboard itself is not assembled by Topre.

The Sony BKE-2011 is unusual in that it uses a conductive rubber contact mechanism instead of the standard Topre capacitive switch.
