NuVJ video controller synchronizes music and video

Numark, leading brand of professional DJ equipment in partnership with ArKaos, provider of technology for live visual performance, launched the NuVJ Video Controller at prolight + sound sow 2006 in Frankfurt, Germany. The NuVJ is designed to be a powerful tool for DJs who want to synchronize video with their musical performance.
The NuVJ allows DJs to incorporate images and video clips in much the same way as mixing music. With the NuVJ, the VJ can trigger images and video clips, add effects to them, mix them through an onboard DJ style crossfader and tweak them in order to create unique and spectacular shows. The NuVJ’s intuitive controller interface makes it easy to use and fun to play live. Switch to automatic mode, and let it run by itself to the beat of the music. The hardware controller works seamlessly with existing DJ gear and the software is compatible with most computers and laptops.
Numark CEO John E. "Jack" O’Donnell commented on the NuVJ Video Controller, “The NuVJ is a terrific, easy to operate video controller that makes it fun and easy to incorporate a variety of visual content into a DJ’s performance, enabling DJs to take their craft to an entirely new level.”
ArKaos uses the power of graphical cards present in every computer. This allows high resolutions and complex effects at a very affordable price. The NuVJ runs on PC and Mac, and can be used on both laptops and rack mounted servers.
Marco Hinic, founder and CEO for ArKaos was equally enthusiastic about the new product offering, “With a very cool appearance, the NuVJ is both easy to operate and fun to use. I believe it represents a significant step forward in terms of both intuitive design and its feature set for today’s demanding DJ.”
