Contour Goes Android: Takes Video Storytelling to Next Level With New Application

Only App Connecting Hands-Free Video to Smartphones Available Free in Android Marketplace

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2011) - Contour, Inc. (http://www.contour.com), a market leader in hands-free video cameras, today launches its highly anticipated Android™ mobile application. Joining its iOS application, the Android app turns Android-powered smartphones into a wireless viewfinder via Bluetooth technology, letting explorers align shots and adjust settings in real-time when they need it most: right before they record. The Contour Android mobile app is compatible with ContourGPS and Contour+ cameras and is now available for free at Contour.com and in the Android Market.

"Our mobile apps push video storytelling further forward by providing what other hands-free cameras don't: a wireless viewfinder," said Marc Barros, Contour CEO. "The Contour Android mobile app turns Android-powered phones into a wireless viewfinder for ContourGPS and Contour+ cameras, allowing explorers to adjust their shot and change their settings in real-time to capture great video from within the action. Contour continues to be the only video camera that connects to mobile devices to create a complete and powerful action video experience."

The Contour Android mobile application lets explorers:

  • Align and preview the shot: A Bluetooth connection sends images between camera and an Android smartphone, creating a live wireless viewfinder; explorers can set up the perfect shot before recording, making crooked, misaligned footage a thing of the past
  • Adjust settings in real time: The mobile app lets explorers change video mode, adjust the microphone volume and react to lighting conditions in the most remote locations
  • Check the camera's vitals: Read battery, memory and GPS signal status on the go
