Contour Design is an American company that has been marketing for many years very convenient audio/video USB control devices called Shuttle. Since this summer Shuttleq can be used with our favorite video editing softwares Avid Studio and Pinnacle Studio 15.
Edit 20.12.2011 [Déclic Vidéo]: after an initial presentation by Saby in October 2011, it's my turn to discover the Xpress Shuttle and Shuttle PRO V2, and to present the product according to my own feelings. For this, I prepared a short video that I encourage you to watch, to get an idea of the product. After several weeks of use, I use it now commonly, for video editing. I admit that I was not able to get used to it for other applications, but for Pinnacle Studio and Avid is simply indispensable; beforhand, I used many keyboard shortcuts, and with the Shuttle I find everything right under my finger, making the edition not only more pleasant, but also faster! Currently, I have not found any really negative point of the product, if I really had to mention something, I'm tempted to say "the difficulty to insert the label on the buttons", but very little since it's an operation to do once only.
(my apologize for the pronunciation)
