A strategic partnership

Numark, the driving force behind the high-tech musical revolution, and ArKaos, the software provider for audio and video integration into live DJ performance, have formed a strategic partnership.

Numark and Arkaos have combined forces in an effort to drive the integration of video into both the DJ and audio experience. With its time-tested legacy of innovation, Numark has leveraged its ability to match its highly recognized hardware expertise with Arkaos' visual software prowess. Together, Numark and Arkaos have created a powerhouse video controller, NuVJ, that invites any DJ (Disc Jockey) to instantly transform into a multimedia VJ (Video Jockey). The software is compatible with a Mac or a PC.

Of particular note, the new product—known as the NuVJ Video Controller—is completely unique to both companies. Officials of Numark and ArKaos were quick to point out that the NuVJ is an entirely new product offering that capitalizes on the strengths of both companies and is designed as a video counterpart to a DJ's existing audio setup.

Numark CEO John E. "Jack" O'Donnell commented, “Numark has a proven track record of innovation in the DJ market and is always looking for opportunities to further exploit the company's strengths. By partnering with ArKaos—a leading innovator in the rapidly growing VJ market—I believe both companies have the opportunity to forge new, uncharted territories in a segment of the DJ market that is poised for explosive growth.”

ArKaos' founder and CEO, Marco Hinic, concurs, “For over eight years, ArKaos has revolutionized the integration of visuals into the ever-evolving music scene. Our products are designed for displaying large visuals at concerts, in clubs, and other venues that cater to music performance. As the integration of sound and picture becomes more closely intertwined in the DJ's performance arena, we believe the necessity for a dedicated hardware controller is more important than ever. By partnering with Numark, I am confident DJs will find the prospect of adding visuals to their performances easier and more appealing than ever.”

Before we develop new products, we ask these questions: What tools does a DJ need to create and deliver a signature sound? What functions and features will give a DJ ultimate control and creativity in battles, clubs, studios, weddings, and sets at the house at the end of the street? Our premise is that only one thing matters: the DJ's experience. From basic tools to the most advanced gear for forward professionals, our equipment is designed and engineered to stand up to the rigors of this experience.

We’re proud to deliver the most advanced line of gear available today, including the world's highest-torque turntable motor, the world's first 100% digital 10" scratch mixer, and the world's first CD players that provide simultaneous control of multiple effects.
