Contour Design will announce the ShuttleXpress, a new five-button jog and shuttle media controller based on its award-winning ShuttlePRO, at the NAB show in Las Vegas this week. The ShuttleXpress is designed for “ergonomic integrity and maximizing productivity,” allowing one-hand access to the five programmable buttons and a jog/shuttle knob. The inner ring or “jog” rotates through 360 degrees and provides frame-by-frame control. The outer black ring or “shuttle” is rubberized and spring-loaded. It facilitates fast forward and rewind. You can also use the jog and shuttle for many other purposes such as scrolling, volume control, and sequencing. It comes pre-configured for many of the leading Audio and Video applications and can be easily customized for virtually any application. The US$59.95 controller works with Mac OS 8.6 or higer and Mac OS X 10.1 or higher.
