Seamless syncing between sound and visuals to create exciting shows
We’ve licensed access to our PRO DJ LINK™ network information, which helps VFX companies bring DJ performances to life with hypnotic visual effects.
PRO DJ LINK enables you to sync lighting, video displays and pyrotechnics with audio played on our professional DJ set-up. Widely used by DJs at major festivals and clubs around the world, this set-up includes the CDJ-2000NXS2 Pro-DJ multi player and the DJM-900NXS2 Pro-DJ mixer.
Licensed companies can connect their products1 to our free specialised app, PRO DJ LINK Bridge, to access the PRO DJ LINK network. The app ensures seamless syncing between visual effects and DJ performances, enabling DJs, event producers, lighting designers, LJs2, video creators, and VJs3 to blow away crowds with multi-sensory shows.
You’ll need to update the firmware of each unit to the latest version available at support page.
To use licensed companies’ products with our professional DJ set-up, you need to use the PRO DJ LINK Bridge app4. This app helps the PRO DJ LINK network system to run smoothly.
