Combining Pioneer's world-famous CD Jog Dial technology with the flexibility and capacity of DVD, the DVJ-X1 looks just like the company's own CDJ-1000MKII CD Player. But what is even more radical is that the DVJ-X1 has the same functionality - with the added capacity to playback DVDs as well as CDs. This means that digital DJs used the preforming live with a CDJ-1000MKII will have no trouble using the DVJ-X1 as a CD-playback tool.
But crucially, DVJs will also be able to use the DVJ-X1 to manipulate DVD visuals in exactly the same way as they would music. So real-time digital video scratches, loops and instant cues are all possible with the awesome DVJ-X1, while the video and audio streams always stay in perfect sync, even when they're being reserved and pitched. This new Pioneer unit works with all established CD formats as well as DVDs, crossing the boundaries between the once-separate audio and video domains.
