Cortex, a part of GCI Technologies, is proud to announce its groundbreaking HDC-1000 digital music controller as winner of the ‘Best Product Line’ award presented at the National Association of Mobile Entertainers (N.A.M.E.)

An industry first, the HDC-1000 utilizes Cortex’s patent-pending USB-compatible technology to enable DJ’s to access, cue up, play, scratch, pitch, manipulate and search digital music files from a wide array of storage devices (up to 4 with an external USB hub) including the iPod®, external USB hard-drives and flash drives, CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives.

“All attendees at the NAME conference in Atlanta were excited to visit the Cortex booth. The HDC-1000 was the highlight of the entire conference,” raved NAME Director Bruce Keslar.

Recognized throughout the industry as a premier National DJ and Mobile Entertainer Conference, this year’s NAME National Conference, titled Building for the Future V, provided attendees with an opportunity to ‘Make The Transition” first hand with a seminar led by Cortex guru Bernie Fryman as well as get a sneak peek at the fantastic new additions to the Cortex product line due later this year.

Upon accepting Cortex’s ‘Best Product Line’ award GCI Technologies President Alan Cabasso glowed when saying, “NAME and it’s membership have deeply embraced the GCI Technologies family of brands over the years and we are truly honored by this award and their support of our new technology.”

The HDC-1000 is in stores now, installed with unit software V1.9.1, which updates the unit to include Scratch, Playlist Support and Autofade. This update is also available as a free download to registered Cortex HDC-1000 owners on the Cortex website,
