CASIO to present latest generation of PRIVIA digital pianos at NAMM
The PX-S1000 und PX-S3000 are the world's slimmest digital pianos with hammer action

Norderstedt/Anaheim, 24 January 2019– CASIO will be showcasing its new PX-S digital pianos at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, USA, between 24 and 27 January. The two models, the PX-S1000 and PX-S3000, form the latest generation in the successful Privia series. Taking their cue from the slogan “Slim. Stylish. Smart.”, they are extremely compact digital pianos with hammer action and 88 keys.
These two PX-S models owe their low depth of 232 millimetres to the newly developed Smart Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard, which provides the player with an authentic piano touch. The Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR sound source ensures lifelike reproduction of playing and sound properties of acoustic instruments. What’s more, the PX-S1000 and PX-S3000 also offer Bluetooth audio reproduction. This gives users the option of using the piano as a Bluetooth loudspeaker and playing along to their favourite songs. The newly developed loudspeaker system excels thanks to its powerful sound and impressive volume. Beyond that the „Chordana Play for Piano“ app is available for free for both models. It can be used as a practical remote controller or also as an interactive learning tool. The new PX-S models are flexible in their use thanks to optional battery-powered operation – perfect for practice and performance. The PX-S1000 (RRP 649. - €) will be available in black and white while the PX-S3000 (RRP 899. - €) comes in black.

Cory Henry en CASIO CT-X5000:
CASIO lanceert muziekvideo met Cory Henry op het topmodel van de nieuwe CT-X-keyboardserie

Norderstedt, 6 juni 2018 - Cory Henry bracht een bezoek aan de Musikmesse om de nieuwe CT-X-keyboardserie van CASIO te presenteren. Nu volg deel twee van deze succesvolle samenwerking. CASIO lanceert vandaag een nieuwe muziekvideo met Cory Henry en het nieuwe CT-X5000-keyboard.

De video is opgenomen in Frankfurt am Main in een 16 meter lange 'lichtcocon' in de vorm van een zeppelin. Deze stond op de grasrand van Niebelungenallee in de Frankfurtse wijk Nordend tijdens de 'Luminale 2006'.

Cory Henry creëerde de track die nu wordt gelanceerd, vóór de opnames begonnen en, zo zegt hij zelf, hij had veel plezier met de nieuwe CT-X5000: "Ik heb me ontzettend goed vermaakt tijdens het opnemen van de track voor de video. Echt, ik heb thuis uren zitten jammen."
