Denon DJ has announced a firmware version 1.3 upgrade for its SC5000 Prime professional media player with 7″ multi-touch display.

Denon DJ SC5000

The new firmware will give DJs performance enhancing pitch resolution, and most importantly, will now import rekordbox files and database content directly into the SC5000.

A quick re-cap of the stunning Denon DJ SC5000 Prime media player: Winner of two DJ Mag Tech Awards for ‘Innovative New Product’ and ‘Ultimate Club Deck,’ the SC5000 Prime sets a new standard for ease of use and comprehensive creative features. It is a professional unit with 7-inch multi-touch display that enables gestures and swiping for the ultimate DJ expression and immediacy of interaction.

Adding dual-layer playback on a single unit, making it possible to mix a full DJ set on just one player, plus on-board trigger pads for expressive live performance, the SC5000 represents the future of professional DJ performance, right here, right now.

The new 1.0.3 firmware delivers two important upgrades, which significantly improve the SC5000’s operational effectiveness:

  • Direct import of rekordbox® database — automatically and elegantly converts hot-cues, saved loops and playlists into Engine format, directly within the SC5000 player
  • Adjusted pitch resolution for more accurate BPM setting during DJ performance

SC5000 Prime is available globally, at a U.S. retail price of $1,899 USD. The 1.0.3 firmware will be part of SC5000 Prime media players starting in November 2017.
