Tonium, the Swedish tech company behind the Pacemaker, the world’s first pocket-sized DJ system, is proud to announce the Pacemaker has been awarded DJMag’s “Most Innovative New Product” during the Music Tech Awards 2008. Considered by many to be the biggest DJ technololgy awards in Europe, Tonium and other Music Tech Award winners will appear in December’s issue of DJmag.
“We are honored to have won the “Most Innovative New Product” award considering the other marquee brands like Pioneer and Stanton DJ were in contention,” said Ola Sars, Tonium’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “It’s amazing to see how receptive our industry and the DJ community are to innovation. The warm reception the Pacemaker has received around the world is nothing short of remarkable.”
The Pacemaker is a portable 120GB media player that features full professional DJ functionality. Imagine two turntables, a mixer and an entire record collection contained in a device that fits into your pocket. The Pacemaker itself is part of the larger Pacemaker platform that encompasses the Pacemaker Editor and the Pacemaker Community. Pacemaker Editor is a free, downloadable PC and Mac compatible computer application that allows you to play music and edit and create mixes. The Pacemaker Community is an online music community that allows members to upload and legally share the mixes of their music, created by the Pacemaker or the Pacemaker Editor software.
