Demonstration of new features, LC-Flash and LC-ADAT

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 Lasershow Converter FLASH and Lasershow Converter ADAT -- a new Lasershow Converter family member that allows you to convert shows originally recorded on ADAT directly into Pangolin-compatible frames and shows.

Hardware presentation

During this portion of the meeting, a few new hardware products were shown which will soon be available from Pangolin. One of them is a USB option for the Flashback series of laser controllers. Another is a new rack-mountable and network-able QM2000 called the QM2000/Net, which can be embedded directly into laser projectors for convenient network connection instead of long analog cable runs. More information on these products will be available soon. Keep an eye on the What's New section of the Pangolin web site...


Pangolin continued its tradition of providing a wide variety of foods to choose from. This year we offered a buffet with a wide variety of meal choices and deserts as well as a full complement of beverages.

Pangolin Prize Presentation

This year, we had 28 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 or Lasershow Converter FLASH. Because of the timing of this year's meeting, this Pangolin Prize competition actually covers both 2004 and 2005.
