Today, Denon DJ has announced their new Prime 4 DJ system, a 4-channel standalone system that takes their Prime players and mixer, and packs them into a single portable system with new and advanced features. Some of the features include a 10-inch multi-touch/gesture display, dual-zone output, pro-mixer section, powerful performance pads, dual mic channels, and a 2.5-inch built-in SATA drive bay.
One of the more interesting features is what they are calling Zone Output, which allows you to "send music to a completely separate room or location, all while the DJ rocks the dancefloor in the main venue." Also, Prime 4 can access a large number of music files and media sources with no less than four USB inputs, one SD and also a built-in SATA drive bay. In addition, any DJ in any venue now has total command over impactful visual elements with lighting and video control via Denon DJ’s StagelinQ connectivity and Denon DJ partners Soundswitch, Timecode and Resolume applications.
