NAMM06: Audio/Video Mixer With Effects From Numark
AVM2 is a feature-packed yet easy to use package 22/01/06
Numark has announced the introduction of the AVM02 Audio/Video Mixer. Designed for mobile DJs and clubs who demand the utmost versatility when working with both sound and visuals, the new rackmountable AVM02 offers a wealth of features for live audio/visual performances, including separate replaceable DJ crossfaders, a variety of video mixing options, two video effects sections, joystick control, multiple color background options, plus PAL and NTSC compatibility. It is presented in an attractive, easy to grasp layout that Numark say should enable operators to be up and running in no time.
The AVM02â€™s inclusion of separate, user-replaceable DJ crossfaders for audio and video with linked mode operation and slope control provides DJs the ability to transition from song to song independently from the visuals being presented. Alternatively, if they prefer, the linked mode operation enables sound and picture to transition together. With the ability to define the faderâ€™s slope, operators should have a massive degree of control over every aspect of their presentation. Key Features
