Seattle-based Contour has sealed a deal to sell its line of helmet-mounted HD video cameras at Yamaha Motor Corp. dealers across the country, another big retail distribution point for the Seattle company. The news follows a deal last year in which Apple agreed to start carrying Contour’s top-of-the-line video camera.
“Riding motorcycles, ATV’s, side x sides or snowmobiles are just some of the outdoor activities Contour users already love to do, so it was a very clear choice to team up with Yamaha,” said Bill Lucarelli, vice president of sales at Contour, in a statement. “Adventure-seekers across the country can find Contour cameras, mounts and accessories at their local Yamaha dealer, making it easier than ever to capture and share the action.”
Contour, which was started at the University of Washington, sells its Contour+2 for $399.99 and its ContourROAM2 for $199.99. The company had revenue of $27 million in 2011.
