Offering the same operation and layout as the CDJ-1000MK3 with enhanced DVD specifications, the Pioneer DVJ-1000 allows DJs to easily create and add visuals to their sets. Several groundbreaking features enhance its core CDJ-1000MK3 capabilities, plus you can manipulate DVD visuals as you would music; so digital video scratches, loops and instant cues are all possible. DJs can perform audio-only sets while having the option to mix DVD with a powerful and versatile range of effects on hand. The best of both worlds.
The DVJ-1000 can be slotted into existing booth setups, making it a logical purchase for clubs looking for a high-quality CD deck with the future in mind. Speaking of visual artistry, research shows that around 70% of clubs and 60% of music bars are installing visual equipment, so there's a definitive need in the market for creating imaginative and engaging visual sets. All the more reason to step up to a DVD turntable.
Additional features include MP3 compatibility (with an intuitive navigator), a brighter and larger WAVE display, studio-quality 24-bit/96kHz audio and several innovations like 4X hyper jog mode and a back-and-forth loop button.
The DVJ-1000 offers the standard features and enhanced specification of the CDJ-1000MK3, allowing DJs to easily add visuals to their sets. It includes 'JOG feeling adjustment' that tailors the deck to performers' individual styles and retains the familiar look and feel of the CDJ-1000MK3 with pitch control, cues and loops executed in the same intuitive fashion.
Formats and MP3 Navigation
The deck supports CD (CD-R/RW) and DVD (DVD-R/RW) media and performers who work with DVD in Europe and the States will value the convenience of built-in PAL/NTSC compatibility.
The DVJ-1000 sets a new benchmark for music portability--up to 1,000 MP3 tracks can be accessed on DVD-ROM--and provides the most advanced deck for working with this ever-popular format. When connected to a preview monitor, the MP3 Navigator makes track selection a breeze: the information is displayed on a larger screen, DJs can search for music by file and up to eight subfolders (for example, genre of music, artist, track) and seven lines of text are available. For ease, a cursor button is included on the deck to scroll through and select files.
DJs also receive more information from the Preview Output Display. This enhanced feature provides an extensive dashboard (through a preview monitor) that displays key information for DVD, CD and MP3 including: DVD content, WAVE, title, artist, album, main cue points and three hot cue points.
The DVJ-1000 retains the recent display improvements to the CDJ-1000MK3. The 360-degree On-Jog Display is improved by being raised on the wheel and lit fluorescently, the cue marker is larger and the 45-degree angle marks make it easier for scratch DJs to time their effects. The track display's resolution has been doubled and the lighting is multicolor and fluorescent, while the WAVE data and playing address data encompass a complete track.
Studio quality sound
With its 24-bit/96kHz audio, studios, producers and artists who have the option of outputting their tracks in optimum clarity will use the DVJ-1000. Connected to Pioneer's digital chain of mixers and effectors, the DVJ-1000 delivers unparalleled audio quality. Another feature that appeals to music professionals is Pioneer's Legato Link Pro. This digital filter applies up-sampling technology to reproduce audio information lost in some disc formats (DVD: 48 kHz \ 192 kHz; CD: 44.1 kHz \ 176.4 kHz).
A back-and-forth loop button allows seamless looping in four sequential steps forwards and backwards; it's a creative feature that also reproduces a smooth progression of audio and images by removing jitter. Further original developments include the one-track chapter seamless loop (the track is looped continuously when the button is pressed for a second), a 4-beat loop button (provides automatic 4-beat looping without needing to select the out point), and an adjustable loop in point and the back lighting of the re-loop button. For DVJs who use short video clips, the one-track loop button is a convenient feature--it repeatedly plays back the content.
A new 4X speed hyper jog mode has been created to support rapid searching. This also accelerates the speed at which video and audio can be scratched to extend creativity. The search facilities are complemented by a new manual search facility using the Jog Wheel (at up to 160X speed) and the WAVE display to locate tracks.
As with the CDJ-1000MK3, gold RCA connectors are included and the deck also has a digital out to ensure the highest level of sonic purity when connected to the DJM-1000 or DJM-800 digital mixer series, for example. In addition, the deck includes a 'resume play' function to restart playing from the same point if a CD or DVD is accidentally ejected.

Comments about Pioneer DVJ-1000 Professional DVD Turntable:
Where do I start. I've had them for about 4 months and I love them. I sold my CDJ800 and got these. 5K is alot of money but these will be around for the next 5 years. The DVD quality is excellent. Sound is good too. Its the 1000s with video added. You can play MP3 in folders with a monitor to help you navigate from song to song. Make sure you read the manual when it comes to some of the features.
