NAMM 2016: Numark Dashboard, Heads-Up Display For Serato DJs

We’ve kicked things off with our coverage of NAMM 2016 (follow along on Instagram or see all of articles here), and one of the more interesting announcements came from Numark, who are showing off a new accessory product, the Numark Dashboard. It’s designed to give DJs a quick heads-up display of Serato DJ, and remove the issues that come with Serato Face. Keep reading for specs and our first impressions.

Numark Dashboard= The NS7III Screen Array, Solo

Numark Dashboard at NAMM 2016 – #baNAMMa for scale
  • DJ Gear: Numark Dashboard
  • Manufacturer: Numark
  • Price: $399
  • Availability: Q2, 2016

If you’ve kept an eye on Numark, you might have noticed that they’ve released this accessory product specifically targeted for NS7II users in the past. But Numark had the bright idea to take the add-on display unit and make a few changes to allow it to be sold to any Serato DJ user with a bit of tweaking. It’s turned out pretty well – and for many DJs who are too focused on their laptops, particularly DVS users, this could be a big win.

The Numark Dashboard has a rotatable base stand, allowing it to be oriented differently depending on the bit of gear that it’s in front of. As with the NS7III screen setup, there’s a track deck display on each side, and the middle section is for browsing and selecting tracks, as well as displaying the waveforms when the browser is closed.

There’s also a USB hub on the back with two powered USB ports – someone at Numark has been reading my list of innovations that need to be commonplace on DJ hardware.

Below, watch an overview of the NS7III Screen Array’s features on the displays – which have the same interface and layout as this new Numark Dashboard product.

DJTT continues to cover new products at NAMM 2016 in the coming days. You can see all the NAMM articles here, or follow us on Twitter or Instagram for up-to-the-minute updates and unique insights.

    Can’t you do the same with the Serato remote? Even though I know this is a little bit bigger and more spread out

  • Tha Lord Marshal

    It’s cool only if it works better than the NS7II display they released last year. Can’t use that thing for more than an hour before we get sound distortion. “WE” being the dozens of other suckers I see who bought that thing and can’t use it and get no REAL help from Numark..

  • Max Pi

    400 dollars…. might as well buy a small screen for that price….

    • Albert Haulk

      $300. guitar center.

    if they could make something like this for Traktor, would be in heaven

  • orge

    Looks pretty cool! I would definitely buy something like this if it worked with Traktor.

  • Bill Ierardi

    i assume this was made so id stop bitching about it not existing. now i guess ill just bitch at denon for not updating the 3900 like i was expecting (dam denon trolled me hard thinkin one was coming when i complained too)

    • James Brian Thomaston

      Yeah, the new version of Engine looks just eh.. the gridding isnt very adjustable, it reads BPM’s off by a couple of milliseconds which makes looping not work correctly. I think the best thing to do is find Serato solutions for Denon problems… But hey, at least they aren’t breaking our gear like the Pioneer line currently.

  • Callum Davenport-Lambton

    So can I use this screen thing with say a djm-s9 and my turntables? that would be cool.

  • Ezra

    it would be cool to see them make a two channel stand alone unit of this thing

  • ogrosic

    it would be better to have an integrated Serato software with features update, so that the controller can operate as a stand alone unit

    • Dan White

      Thanks for the note! There’s no official product page yet. Been a long day of travel + preNAMM 🙂

  • Jake Bergeson

    Ooh. Now THAT is a pretty cool idea! Well played Serato.
