Long before the world began tapping its toes and humming along to recorded music, the piano was the center of entertainment in many homes—the radio, stereo, and television of its day. With the advent of player and reproducing pianos employing the latest technology, even households without resident pianists could look to the piano for entertainment. In 1986, Yamaha introduced the original Yamaha Disklavier—a 'player piano' for the computer age that uses digital functions to complement and enhance the inherently rich musical experience of the Yamaha acoustic piano. Over the years, these combination acoustic/digital pianos have evolved into instruments that can reproduce 'live' acoustic piano concerts and ensemble music complete with instrumental backings and vocal tracks. The Disklavier Mark IV, with its own unique pairing of Yamaha's acoustic and digital excellence, takes this all a step further. Combining the tone and touch of worldclass Yamaha acoustic grand pianos with an astonishing range of interactive capabilities—including a direct link to the Internet for quick and easy access to an extensive song library—the Mark IV is the obvious choice of musiclovers, pianists, and educators worldwide.

Pocket Remote Control (PRC-100)
The sleek, compact design of the PRC-100 literally packs all of the Disklavier Mark IV's features and functions into a single hand-held device. Its intuitive full-color touch screen (320 x 240 pixels) is as easy to read as it is to use. You can browse your entire library with the handy stylus, or create custom playlists using the built-in QWERTY keypad.
Microphone, Virtual Backup Singers, and Lyrics Display
Just connect a microphone to the Disklavier Mark IV piano and sing along through its built-in speakers. To fine-tune your experience, the Mark IV features performanceenhancing effects like spacious reverbs and vocal harmony with virtual backup singers. You can choose to display song lyrics externally on any TV monitor or internally via the optional tablet remote control (TRC-100). To browse the vast library of song disks available, visit www.yamahamusicsoft.com.
A Built-In Amplified Speaker System,as Only Yamaha Can Provide
The Disklavier Mark IV performs as a stand-alone unit or as part of the ultimate home audio/video system. With genuine Yamaha speakers, each powered monitor is discretely mounted at an outward angle sending music away from the piano for a more spacious overall sound. For larger audio systems and installations, flexible output routings are provided to send music to any part of the house your system allows. Outputs assigned to areas far from the Disklavier can have a digital piano sound inserted into the audio stream, while keeping a background-only mix sounding in areas near the acoustic piano.
Low-Profile Media Center:the Gateway to All Your Music Software
Beautifully concealed behind a retractable, glossy black cover that matches the piano cabinetry, the Mark IV's Media Center is packed with entertainment-enhancing hardware, like built-in floppy disk and CD drives. Software can be played directly from those drives or from removable USB storage devices*. Software can also be loaded onto the Mark IV's internal memory for easy retrieval (see page 14 for more details). Convenient connections include headphone outputs, microphone input, and USB ports.
Optional Tablet Remote Control (TRC-100)
The TRC-100's synergy of elegance, style, and technology makes operating the Disklavier Mark IV an experience like no other. The 10.4-inch liquid crystal display provides several animated visual environments to access your favorite features, either with a tap of the stylus or a touch of a finger. Using the TRC-100, you can view karaoke lyrics, select background visuals, browse your song library, and even run a slide show of your own digital pictures!
PianoSmart™ Audio Synchronization
You won't need to look too hard to find audio CDs that are compatible with your Disklavier Mark IV—you probably already own them. Thanks to cutting-edge PianoSmart technology, Mark IV acoustic piano performances can accompany hundreds of standard store-bought audio CDs. All that's required is the corresponding Smart PianoSoft title for the CD of your choice. So choose a CD of a world-class Yamaha artist playing the piano, then watch and listen as the Mark IV matches that piano recording note for note. After you load titles into the Mark IV's internal memory, PianoSmart automatically and seamlessly synchronizes the audio each time.
Built-In PianoSoft Sampler – The Disklavier Mark IV is Ready to Play
Every Disklavier Mark IV comes pre-installed with hours of music right from the factory, featuring selections from PianoSoft Solo, PianoSoft•Plus, and even PianoSoft•PlusAudio! This means that the moment your Mark IV is delivered and powered-up, you'll be listening to music
DisklavierRadio: The Power of Streaming
With IDC, the Disklavier Mark IV functions as a radio by streaming songs. DisklavierRadio subscribers can choose from among more than 10 music channels. And piano selections played on the Disklavier truly resonate when instrumental accompaniment is streamed through Disklavier speakers.
DisklavierMusicStore: A Multitude of Tunes
The Internet-based DisklavierMusicStore has something for everyone. And IDC lets you shop for tunes without leaving home by delivering a comprehensive collection of song titles—conveniently organized by genre—to your Disklavier pocket remote control. Thousands of titles to choose from make the search for a tune as much fun as the find. Thirty-second previews let you audition songs before making your selection, and selected songs or albums can then be purchased and downloaded (transferred) directly from the MusicStore to your Disklavier without using a PC*! Search, preview, purchase, and download—it's just that easy!
PianoSmart™ Video Synchronization
Knowing that some musical experiences engage more than just the ears, Yamaha added visual accompaniment to the Disklavier Mark IV's already-amazing acoustic/digital repertoire. PianoSmart™ Video Synchronization allows parents to enjoy over and over again the sounds and sights of their child's first piano recital through acoustic playback on the Mark IV piano and video playback on a standard TV monitor—at the same time! And aspiring musicians can use this simultaneous listenand-look playback as a useful training tool, simply by connecting the audio jacks of a standard video camcorder to the SYNC jacks of the Mark IV's Input/Output (I/O) Center.
Minnesota International Piano-e-Competition Breaking New Ground with Yamaha
Imagine a top-level classical piano competition where the performers, the judges, the audience, the pianos played, and the pianos heard are all in different corners of the globe. This happens every other year at the Minnesota International Pianoe-Competition. This groundbreaking event, first held in June 2002, wouldn't be possible without the state-of-the-art technology found only on Yamaha Disklavier pianos. Contestants gather in selected cities to perform on Yamaha CFIIIS concert grands equipped as Disklavier PROs. Their performance data is transmitted over the Internet, allowing judges and audiences at each competition site to listen to all the performances played on actual acoustic pianos set up on stage and to watch the competition on stage monitors. To play back performances from the competition on their own acoustic pianos and watch them on monitors in the comfort of their own homes, Disklavier owners around the world can download the latest performances from the competition Web site (www.piano-e-competition.com).
While the Disklavier Mark IV is known for appeasing the ears, with PianoSoft•Plus Graphics, it can also appeal to the eyes. Images corresponding to tunes being played on the Disklavier piano can be displayed on any available monitor, providing visual accompaniment to your musical moments.
More Than a Piano – the Yamaha XG Tone Generator
Many educational software titles are available with ensemble backgrounds to accompany practice. The Yamaha XG tone generator has hundreds of high-quality instrumental voices to get the most out of your accompaniment.
The AEM Tone Generator
Taking digital instruments to astounding levels of realism, the AEM (Articulation Element Modeling) tone generator breathes new life into orchestrated backgrounds. This next-generation sound source produces the subtle nuances heard in brass, saxophone, and string sections. Regular software, including educational and even karaoke titles, will spring to life with Yamaha's cutting-edge sound technology.
Practice One Hand While the Disklavier Plays the Other
Every teacher knows that practicing hands separately improves speed, accuracy, and memorization. With the ability to play the right and left hands independent of one another on selected software titles, as well as to vary the tempo, practicing piano on the Disklavier has become a truly interactive experience. And since hands-separate disk recordings are available for many
Digital Quiet Mode/Headphone Mode Flexibility
Yamaha's Sound Muting System allows you to instantly switch off the sound of the acoustic piano, enabling the digital piano to be played at ultra-quiet volumes. With this feature, you can play and listen in Quiet Mode with the built-in speakers or in Headphone Mode via the privacy of dual headphones. Enjoy the Disklavier anytime at a sound level best suited for you and those around you.
SmartKey™—Now Anyone Can Play Right Away
Have you ever dreamed of playing the piano but thought you didn't have time to learn? With SmartKey technology, the new Disklaviers can make your dream come true. Even if you've never touched a keyboard or read a note of music in your life, the new SmartKey feature makes it easy to learn without a single lesson. Just follow along as SmartKey shows you which notes to play by partially depressing the next key in the melody. SmartKey prompts the Disklavier to wait for you and plays at a speed within your comfort zone. Within minutes, you'll be playing entire songs while the Disklavier follows your lead with virtuoso harmonies and arpeggios. CueTIME™, another exciting development in music software, offers sophisticated auto-accompaniment where you don't play along with recordings – the recordings play along with you! Simply play the printed piano part and the digital orchestra follows your cue, matching your pace and enhancing your performance with professional arrangements. Note: SmartKey software may not be available in some countries.
Ultra-Large Internal Music Storage Capacity
Hundreds of hours of music from floppy disks, CDs, and other removable media can be loaded and stored on the Disklavier Mark IV's vast internal memory for fast and easy playback.
Yamaha's Exclusive High-Performance Grayscale Hammer Sensor
The world's first continual-detection optical hammer sensor continuously traces the hammer position from the time a key is pressed until it's released. The grayscale key sensor monitors every motion of the key and hammer—even on rapidly repeated notes—with meticulous precision and the softest touch. This technology also allows the Mark IV to calibrate itself—all of which adds up to the most accurate playback of any system available.
Servo Control for Precision Playback Performance
Under the command of specially developed LSI microprocessors, the servo control system continuously monitors the movement of each key, precisely recreating every detail of the original performance.
Get Connected with the I/O Center
A wide range of external equipment—TVs, cameras, computers, home networks, and various other audio equipment—can be connected to the Disklavier Mark IV through the I/O (input/output) Center.
