QM2000 laser computer card

A hardware card that goes in the computer. The QM2000 is a sophisticated laser-computer-on-a-board; it handles all laser signal processing so output quality does not depend on the Windows PC's microprocessor. (Note: Because it handles all laser signal processing, the QM2000 must be installed in the computer in order for LD2000 to run.)

Lasershow Designer 2000 frame creation software

A program for creating, editing and animating frames. This was the first software component written for LD2000, so it is also called Lasershow Designer 2000 (or the "frame editor").

Showtime show creation software

A program for making the laser show. You create effects, and sequencing those effects with frames and music. This is called Showtime; it uses a timeline editing system similar to standard multimedia programs (Adobe Premiere, Macromedia Director).

Live! screen


Live! cue-playing software

A program for setting up and playing cues live. This is called Live!
        It runs as part of Showtime but functionally can be considered a separate program.

Lasershow Performer console (GIF, 4867 bytes)


Lasershow Performer console

An optional hardware console called Lasershow Performer. This duplicates the features of the Live! software, but because it is a dedicated hardware device, it makes it easier to run shows. It also has extra features such as built-in audio and microphone beat detection.

Note: Lasershow Performer is not stand-alone. It must be attached to a computer running Lasershow Designer 2000, or the original Lasershow Designer.
