SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Sep 13, 2013) - Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), an emerging growth technology company specializing in state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced its participation at BPM 2013 taking place at the NEC (National Exhibition Center) in Birmingham, UK September 14-16, 2013 (Hall 12, Booth A72), one of Europe's premier DJ trade shows.
Due to its significant growth in popularity, BPM is billed as the world's largest event dedicated to DJs, electronic music production and entertainment technology, welcoming over 8000 visitors from 18 different countries. This year, Beamz Interactive will be demonstrating its new Beamz DJ controller and its integration with Virtual DJ. The new and improved Beamz DJ product is expected to be available to the general public in both Europe and the United States later this month, in time for the holiday season.
"BPM is the perfect event for us to showcase our new DJ products and offerings," said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. "We believe the amateur and professional DJ market in Europe represents a substantial new sales opportunity for Beamz. We've made some significant improvements to our Beamz DJ hardware and we are excited to unveil the details at the show."
Showcasing a wide-range of products, BPM will be the UK's first showing of the new Beamz DJ product, which is ideal for professional DJs to add a creative visual element to their performances. It is also ideal for aspiring DJs to get started mixing with their own music using the tailored version of Virtual DJ LE software included in the product setup with pre-programmed commands. This new SKU will also include mapping software for users to control virtually any DJ, production or lighting application.
Improvements, features and options of the new Beamz DJ controller include:
- Native MIDI Communication: This new capability provides broad compatibility for the new Beamz DJ product to be used with a wide range of MIDI applications.
- Virtual DJ Integration: Integrated skin to allow full integration of the Beamz DJ hardware with Virtual DJ LE software by Atomix Productions on a PC or Mac.
- Smaller Footprint: The retail box footprint has been reduced by 45% from the previous Beamz model C4 controller, which provides retailers and dealers more flexibility for merchandising placement.
- New Carrying Cases: Reasonably priced soft cases for short trips and transport cases suitable for shipping and airline travel.
- Party Pack Content: New "party pack" content bundles include interactive songs for mobile DJs to use at weddings, bar mitzvahs, parties, etc.
During BPM 2013, Beamz Interactive will demonstrate the new special compiled version of Virtual DJ LE, which includes a plug-in for the Virtual DJ mixing software to natively communicate with the Beamz DJ laser controller. This integration features a unique dashboard skin that mirrors the design of the Beamz controller and its laser beams as triggers. Participants will be able to see this integration first-hand at BPM 2013.
"Beamz DJ is the new must-have product for professional DJs," said Rod Lewis, Managing Director for Beamz Europe. "Now that Beamz has a local UK presence, we are devoting significant resources to raise brand awareness to coincide with the launch of our exciting range of new Beamz products and accessories in Europe's high-growth DJ market."
