21 years in business and no prior year was as turbulent as this last one was for DJs, KJs, our industry, and our global community as a whole. When COVID-19 took hold throughout the world and bars and clubs closed and events were cancelled, there was cause for alarm — and rightfully so.
However, DJs and Karaoke Hosts always bet on themselves, they’re fighters, and they found a way to prevail, with many doing their part to entertain the masses through live streams and other avenues.
PCDJ wasn’t immune to the struggle, and while we saw an understandable decrease in interest in the pro-space and venues we saw a sizable and measurable increase in interest from bedroom DJs and hobbyist’s. I think we’ll see a lot of new DJs with extensive practice already under their belt as things slowly creep back to a level of normalcy for us all.
Our development teams also stayed busy in 2020 with progress made across our entire lineup of professional live performance DJ and karaoke software. As we like to do each year, here’s a snapshot of a few of our top milestones over the last 12 months.
Began development with new partners of new features and services that will kick off in early 2021 (We’re beta testing the new remote singer/song request system for both DEX 3 and LYRX right now – look for a release in January 2021!).
With 2020 in the books we’re anxiously looking forward to building on our momentum in 2021. New features, new services, and a more is on the way for our software lineup.
Happy New Year — and here’s to a healthy and prosperous 2021!
