Numark, in partnership with ArKaos, a leading provider of technology for live visual performance, proudly announce the NuVJ Video Controller.

The NuVJ is the perfect tool for DJs who want to synchronize video with their musical performance. The NuVJ is the result of the combined expertise of Numark and ArKaos to create a hardware/software product that is a natural extension of the DJ set up.

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. The NuVJ is simply easier, better and more affordable than any other VJ product on the market.

The NuVJ Video Controller delivers a wealth of stunning visual capability combined with intuitive operation and makes a perfect video counterpart to an audio setup. With video sample playback and effects from a wide range of sources, internal generation of patterns and backgrounds, real-time effects, crossover patterns, and numerous additional features, the NuVJ Video Controller is the ideal tool for DJs in search of their first video setup.

While other products rely on hardware to mix video, ArKaos uses the power of graphical cards present in every computer. This allows higher resolutions, more 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.
