Contour Updates Shuttle/Jog SoftwareNew version includes Key Composer for macro generation
The new 2.5 driver includes the ability to generate macros that are executable through a single button click on any of the company's shuttle/jog devices. The macro functionality includes a new software component called Key Composer, which allows users to customize groups of key combinations, which can execute simultaneously or sequentially. With sequential operation, multiple key combinations can be executed with a single button--such as "find," "find next," "replace and find" etc. The macros can be used to automate repetitive tasks, group commands to a single button or control a VTR or camcorder, among other possibilities.
The 2.5 driver is available now as a free download for Mac OS X. A Windows version is also planned. For more information, visit http://www.contourdesign.com.
