Pioneer has announced the release of the industry's first Wi-Fi DJ system capable of wireless playback from portable devices ... the XDJ-AERO
The XDJ-AERO can grab and use audio tracks stored on a computer using the included proprietary rekordbox music management software for PC or Mac
The system features a 6.4 mm audio jack and an RCA out for master outputs, two 6.4 mm headphone out ports, two RCA inputs and one 6.4 mm microphone jack
The XDJ-AERO can source MP3/AAC audio tracks from up to four different WLAN-enabled devices at any one time, and there's no need to worry about venues having decent Wi-Fi as the unit can create its own wireless access point
The term disc-jockey is thought to have first been coined in the mid-1930s to introduce a radio show host who played recorded (rather than live) music. Although 12-inch platters of grooved black goodness remain popular with Club and Party DJs, it's rare to find a radio professional who hasn't abandoned the format in favor of digital music. Mix-masters who have gone digital can also groove on the move thanks to powerful apps for smartphones and tablets like IK Multimedia's DJ Rig, but physical connectivity is still needed when adding device-based audio tracks to the set. Pioneer's Professional Sound and Visual Division has rallied to the cause with what's claimed to be the industry's first Wi-Fi DJ system capable of wireless playback from portable devices ... the XDJ-AERO.
