Pioneer doesn’t follow the trends, it helps create them. Moving beyond audio

“Pioneer doesn’t follow the trends, it helps create them. Moving beyond audio, the DVJ-1000 enables DJ/VJs to create performances with sounds and visuals from DVD,” said Karl Detken, director of product planning for DJ products at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.

By incorporating the key features and controls found in Pioneer’s CDJ and DVJ products, the DVJ-1000 becomes the “must have” equipment for today’s advanced audio and video jocks. Implementation of features from Pioneer’s CDJ series, such as large jog-dial controls, enables precise control of the audio and video data, various loop, hot cues, and reverse functions. Pioneer also enhanced the video features from its first generation DVJ product by adding a one-track seamless loop to instantly loop an entire video track to a session, perfect for short visual tracks.

The advancement of the DVJ-1000 also leads to a smaller physical footprint with a 30 percent decrease in size, closer to the dimension of the CDJ-1000 turntable. The change allows the player to fit in the same application of the CDJ players making it easy for DJs to upgrade to video.

The DVJ-1000 audio features include:

The DVJ-1000 will be available in September 2006 with a retail price of $2,999.
