Contour updates drivers
Contour Design today released the latest ShuttlePRO and ShuttleXpress drivers for Intel-powered Mac systems. Contour's Shuttles, with optimized settings for Final Cut Pro, Avid Xpress Pro, and other editing packages, are among the first programmable editing devices to be compatible with the new Macs, according to the company. "The ShuttlePRO and ShuttleXpress are the ideal tools for editing efficiently and we're committed to keeping up with Apple's innovations," Mike Jackle said, company spokesman for the Mac/Media division. "Final Cut Pro, Avid Xpress Pro, and other users can be assured of full compatibility, and our ShuttlePRO will continue to complete Mac based editing stations." Both the ShuttlePro and ShuttleXpress feature programmable jog/shuttle wheels and buttons for keyboard shortcuts. The new driver is available for download from Contour Design for free, and requires Mac OS 8.6 or later.
