  Pangolin Prize 2003 Winners
Our appreciation goes to Hugo Bunk of Laser Image BV who allowed us to hold the Amsterdam Pangolin meeting within his facilities.
        Thanks also goes out to Patrick Awouters of Laser System Europe who provided equipment, man power and other help for the Brussels Pangolin meeting.




The 12th Annual Pangolin Meetings were a great success with 60 people in attendance from around the world.
        There were two meetings. The first was held Monday, November 24, within the laser studio of Laser Image BV in The Netherlands, close to Amsterdam. The second was held Wednesday, November 26, the day before the ILDA conference. Each meeting had 30 people in attendance, and each had the same basic components:

  • Introduction to Pangolin and Staff Members

  • Discussion of the new features in Pangolin software, and new products including Interactive Messaging Unlimited and Lasershow Converter 4D

  • New Technology Presentation

  • Lunch

  • Presentation and judging of laser shows for the Pangolin Prize

  • LivePRO discussion and demonstration by Glenn Turner of Lasercorp

Since each meeting had the same basic components, we will mainly discuss the first meeting on this page.

Introduction to Pangolin and Staff

During this portion of the meeting, Pangolin’s president William Benner introduced Pangolin Laser Systems and a few members of the staff of Pangolin.

Demonstration of new features, IMU and LC4D

During this portion of the meeting, the new features of the LD2000 system were demonstrated, including updates to Projection Zones, DMX and Enhanced Reality Preview.
        In addition to the discussion of LD2000 features, several completely new products were shown including Interactive Messaging Unlimited -- Pangolin's SMS Messaging software and Lasershow Converter 4D -- a new Lasershow Converter family member that allows you to convert 3D graphics created in MAXON Cinema 4D directly into laser animations.

New Technology presentation

We were very fortunate to have Patrick Dietzel of Laserlight Showdesign present a discussion about the latest version of his show performance software called Laserlight Showcontrol. The latest version has some great new features that allow you to quickly create and organize your shows, and additional support for new LD2000 features including Projection Zones and Enhanced Reality Preview. For more information about Laserlight Showcontrol, click here.


Established for the first time last year, Pangolin continued its tradition of providing a wide variety of foods to choose from. This year we selected the food court where the ACF conference was held. This food court provided American, Mexican, Chinese, and Italian foods, as well as pastries and a full complement of beverages.

Pangolin Prize Presentation

This year, we had 25 entries for the Pangolin Prize competition. This is on par with the number that we received over the past two years. All entries were EXCELLENT and two thirds were created with Lasershow Converter MAX.
