Contour Design has introduced two new iPod cases, the Showcase video 60 and Showcase video 30.

The Showcase video is slimmer than Contour's previous Showcase product, but that doesn't compromise the protection it offers, the company claimed: "By applying advances in high quality dual-injection molding technology, our design team has created a distinctive case that complements the clean, sleek beauty of the Apple iPod with video," said Mike Jackle, spokesperson for the Mac Media Group at Contour Design.

The cases include built-in rubber shock absorbers to protect the music player should it be dropped. It also offers a larger headphone port, a redesigned latch mechanism and a belt clip. The click wheel and top and bottom connectors are accessible when in the case. They cost £24.99 (including VAT).
