Demonstration of new features and software

During this portion of the meeting, the features of the LD2000 system were discussed and demonstrated, including how to properly setup a palette for various laser systems, how to setup Projection Zones including Beam Attenuation Maps, and how to perform initial setup for audience scanning measurements.

Hardware presentation

In addition to the discussion of LD2000 features, several completely new products were shown including the Professional Audience Safety System (PASS), and a new external-box version of the Flashback 3 that we call the Flashback 3 XE.

Pangolin Prize competition

This year, we had 19 entries for the Pangolin Prize competition. This is on par with the number that we received in recent years. All entries were EXCELLENT and many were created with Lasershow Converter MAX.

(Special thanks to MediaLas for loaning us one of their Infinity Laser Projectors for the Pangolin User Meeting. Everyone was impressed by the engineering and size of the projector.)

T-shirt give-away

Pangolin continued its tradition of providing T-shirts to attendees. This year's design was our traditional raster "LD Model" T-shirt, which seems to be an eternal favorite...
