Today Numark announced NV, its intelligent controller for Serato DJ.
The Numark NV features two 4.3-inch, high-resolution full color screens that provide extensive visualization of Serato’s flagship DJ platform and advanced interactive controls. The backlit performance screens deliver vivid, real-time visualization of Serato DJ; complete with spinning Virtual Decks, effects (FX), Cue Points, waveforms and more.

Here’s what he had to say about it:
Apologies to everyone on the full dance floor last night in Seoul.
