Brief: Contour Spins Off Multimedia Division

New unit for focus on audio, video editing devices By Dave Nagel
Contour Design says it has launched a new, privately held company called A/V Solutions. Contour makes several input devices for Mac and Windows, including mice and a multimedia controller called ShuttlePro. The new company will focus on developing hardware devices for audio and video editing.

Contour is the maker of the ShuttlePro multimedia shuttle and jog controller, which launched as a Macintosh-only USB input device. The company later added Windows compatibility to the product. There's no word from Contour yet on whether the company will continue to develop primarily for the Mac. Nor has the company announced plans for future product releases. For more information, visit
