Flightcase specialists 5 Star have produced another high end console based around Pioneer professional DJ products. The brand new Pioneer DVJ-1000 player is the focal point for this particular console, which houses two of the new units along with the popular DJM-800 mixer – allowing DJs to integrate visuals into their sets.
The console was conceived by 5 Star’s in-house design team, in close collaboration with Pioneer Europe NV, and the brief was to produce the DJ and VJ ‘s dream console.
The design team took the radical decision to position the two DVJ-1000 players at angles to the central mixer – for an ergonomic, easy-to-use layout.
Other features of the console, from 5 Star’s Pro-Tect range, include three 6.5” TFT screens, one for each player and one output monitor, which are controlled by a Pioneer VSW-1 video switcher mounted in an angled pod behind the players and mixer.
