th

October 2007: Pioneer today unveils its latest groundbreaking advance in
sound and vision


the SVM
-
1
000. Inspired? You will be! Artists around the globe
have waited patiently for years, knowing that a highly evolved audiovisual
instrument like this was just around the corner. Now it has arrived. Imagine
Pioneer’s award
-
winning DJM
-
800 mixer but for audio

and

video and you are part
way there. One intuitive innovation serving two roles and designed for use with
the DVJ
-
1000 DVD/CD decks, the SVM
-
1000 affords DJs comprehensive control
by

synchronising both audio and video elements of their performance. Even
audio
-
only DJs can easily add visuals synced to the music from the SVM
-
1000's
built
-
in visualiser capability.


DJs and VJs have worked together to deliver immersive AV experiences for
decades, and of course it is natural that the two art forms are so close
ly
interlinked. But Pioneer’s revolutionary DVJ
-
X1s brought the two crafts closer
than ever before in 2004, as the world’s first DVD decks opened up VJing to DJs.
However, a major stumbling block for many was the lack of a simple and easy
-
to
-
use AV mixer;
DJs and VJs had to use separate mixers to blend sound and vision.
Now the super
-
versatile SVM
-
1000 has the power and technology to change all
that. Developed with input from leading DJ and VJ artists this mighty mixer works
perfectly in both audio and AV s
et
-
ups. Complete with LCD touch panel, an
impressive range of effects and
96

kHz/

24
-
bit

studio sound quality, the MIDI
assignable
SVM
-
1000
functions in a similar fashion to Pioneer’s acclaimed
DJM
series


which

for DJs mean
s that the doors to full
-
on AV
freedom are now fully open!


‘I know that for a lot of artists this mixer will be the missing link they have been
waiting for. DJs and VJs around the world now have the potential to explore new
avenues of creativity.’ says Mark Grotefeld, European Marketi
ng Manager, Pioneer
Europe.



Key Features

Finally allowing DJs to unlock their true AV potential,
and further blurring the
boundaries between DJs and VJs
, the
SVM
-
1000
offers the following benchmark
features.

makes history


Thanks to
Pioneer’s

unique

patented
Multiple Video Blending Technology,
it is now
possible to offer

a mixer
that
is capable of 4
-
channel synchroni
s
ed audio
and

video mixing. Audio
and

video in each channel
can be controlled

in variou
s ways
(such as

by
fader or EQ
), and this makes i
t possible to
complete a

synchroni
s
ed
AV

performance
via

conventional DJ
M

mix
ing methods
.
What’s more, because
there is a facility for s
ound
-
only or visual
-
only control,
users

can create
performances accordi
ng to
their individual preferences
.

W
hen switching the video
,

t
he
SVM
-
1000’s
cross fader is capable of various effects
such as

FADE,

WIPE

and

CHROMA

.

This

presents

boundless possibilities in terms

of mixing
, remixing

or scratching at the assigned chann
el.


AV Effect Function
opens up a new world of

audio and video
manipulation

Within

the

SVM
-
1000’s

11
-
inch

LCD touch panel
(conveniently
located
front

centre)

is an
AV
E
ffect
section, which

enables the synchroni
s
ation of audio effects
and video effects.
T
his function

is capable of 30 patterns of effects on the
audio

and/
or visual

s
ide
,
meaning that
you can create
countless

combinations of
effects.
Each effect can be selected
via an

animated icon button for an easier
(
visual
)

understanding of
the
effect,
th
ereby allowing DJs to

instantly

select

the best

effect for the
ir

performance.


1. AV Beat Effect: Automatically detects the tempo (BPM

=

Beat Per Minute) of
the
music

and
a
ffects both audio and video
in time
with the beat.

There are
12
patterns of
Beat E
f
fect
s
: DELAY, ECHO, PAN, TRANS, FILTER, FLANGER,
PHASER, REVERB, ROBOT, CHORUS, ROLL
and
REV ROLL.
Indeed, users are
fully armed on the effects front as e
ach effect
allows

access to

several more
effects
,

including

INVERSE, EDGE
and
HUE.

2. AV Touch Effect
: Enable
s

a
more sensuous
use of
effects
because

it allows
users

to touch

and affect

the visuals directly
, as they
appear on the panel.
The
mixer i

loaded

with 12 patterns of
Touch E
ffect
s
: RIPPLE, LENS, SPOT,
RADIATION, CUBE, BLOCK, KALEIDO, TWIST, ZOOM,

DROP, BLUR
and
DISTORTION.

3. Text Effect

: Automatically detects the tempo of the t
rack

and display

messages in
sync
with the beat.

JPEG Viewer Function
facilitates use of

still images from external
memory sources

This feature

lets users

call up
on

JPEG images
(
up to 8 file
s
)

from SD card
s

or USB
memory
for use in the mixer’s

Still Image Sampler.
By

using
effect
s on

still
images
, or
mixing
these
with motion pictures or
other
still
s
,
this function

further
expand
s

the range of
a

creative
performance
when
compared with
a moving

image
-
only
show
. It also allows loop
ing

of
JPEGs
,

such as logos of the
event/venue/sponsors and DJ branding,
to play
automatically
like a slide show.

allows

high quality sound

and
vision to truly come alive

The
SVM

achieves

supreme

quality sound
through its

digital sampling
system
.

signal input passes through the shortest signal route
to

reach the digital
mixing stage. The mixing is
then
carried out by 32
-
bit DSP

(Digital Signal
Processing)


without
any deterioration of the sound quality


and this

produces
the
finest

possible
sound.
The mixer also sports a

rigid chassis for minimi

and

maximising

The
SVM
-

furthermore
incorporat
es a

high
performance
integrated video circuit.
The video signal
’s

input through
the high
performance ADC is processed with 600

MHz/32

bit/4800 MIPS

(Million
Instructions Per Second = 1 million command execution
s

per minute) to ensure
full
dynamic rage and minimi
s
e unnecessary noise
. This results in

accurate
,

high
quality images



even

when
visual
effects (which are known to cause image
deterioration) are used.


Exciting n

-
conscious design/layout


As a
n instrument that aims to help define

a

new
breed of artist
,
the
SVM
-
1000
boasts

a far
more advanced and solid design

when

compar
ed
to

standard

DJ
mixer
s
.
With the focus on form, the

perspective
-
changing
SVM
-
1000

has been
created to challenge traditional views of DJ
mixers.
To the rear, as

seen from
the dancefloor,
the
SVM
-
1000
features an

illuminat
ed

display
utilising

diffused

ligh
t
. Elsewhere it
incorporates
a
Channel Symmetric Layout

and

a tantalisingly
tangible

11
-
inch LCD touch panel.
The
panel is designed for
a
direct
and

dynamic performance
with low latency while
using

the mixer’s

effects,

and the
symmetric
al

layout
of the
cha
nnel section is
shaped

for
the slickest of shows
.

The side panels also come away allowing the mixer to be 19” rack mounted if
required.
