Denon DJ Introduces Broadcast Mode To X1800 and X1850

Denon DJ help ease set up for Live Streaming with X1800 & X1850 mixers!

Denon DJ have today announced the introduction of Broadcast mode to their X1800 and X1850 mixers. Broadcast mode allows the main output mix to stream over USB audio channels 1/2 rather than the default 9/10. This is required by some live stream platforms such as OBS. Enabling Broadcast mode provides the user with a plug and play solution for streaming live with OBS without the need for an additional USB audio interface or complicated software configuration!
