Bella Corporation today announced they are shipping version 2.0 software for the HD Mouse and version 3.1 software drivers are now available for their award winning jog/shuttle keyboards.
The wireless HD Mouse delivers the ultimate multimedia experience, providing exciting capabilities not found in any other mouse. Using patented technology in Bella’s exclusive HD software, mouse movements (X and Y axis) can be defined to provide intuitive gesture-type control, such as transforming the HD Mouse into a jog/shuttle controller for video editing enthusiasts. Gamers and power users will appreciate being able to program any keystroke, combination keystroke or series of keystrokes (macros) to any of the buttons, scroll wheel or mouse movement.
HD Mouse 2.0 New Features:
- A five button mouse becomes a 50 button mouse: modifier keys can now be combined with mouse clicks, enabling as many as 48 options on Windows and 96 unique click options on Apple Mac systems.
- Mouse clicks can be programmed into macros.
- User Profiles: up to three user profiles can be stored to accommodate additional users or multiple settings for a single application.
- Multiple ways to enter HD Mode: Scroll click (original method), Side Button 1 or Side Button 2.
- HD Mode notification icon: user selectable sizes and position provides valuable mode feedback.
- Windows key disabling: In HD Mode, the Windows key can be disabled so that it is not accidentally pressed during game play.
- Timeout function: If the mouse is inactive in HD Mode for a period of time (2, 5 and 10 minutes) it will automatically switch back to ‘standard’ mouse mode.
