[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - Contour Design, a market leader in audio/video editing devices, has released new ShuttlePRO and ShuttleXpress drivers with optimized settings for Adobe Creative Suite 4 Production Premium, Apple Final Cut Studio 2, and Avid Liquid 7.
ShuttlePRO V.2 is designed for ergonomic integrity and maximum productivity, allowing one-handed access to 15 fully-programmable buttons, a jog knob, and a spring loaded shuttle wheel. At the head of the ShuttlePRO are nine programmable buttons complete with crystal clear removable keycaps for intuitive labeling and ease of reference. The inner ring or 'jog knob' at the center of the ShuttlePRO rotates a full 360 degrees to provide precise frame-by-frame control while the outer black ring or rubberized 'shuttle wheel' facilitates fast forward and rewind. In addition, the jog and shuttle can be configured for many other purposes including scrolling, volume control, and sequencing.
Modeled after the award-winning ShuttlePRO, the ShuttleXpress offers a professional multimedia controller at an attractive price.
