Blog Introduction

Welcome to my laser blog! This blog will be filled on a - more or less - regular basis with all kinds of different topics that maybe aren't worth official press releases or are a bit off topic. This blog will usually be maintained and written by myself. If one of my colleagues posts here, the post will be marked with the respective initials.

The demand for reliable, branded lasers is rising:
I just want to give you a quick glimpse on what we're preparing for shipment next week: Hundreds of POS pallet displays equipped with the latest development - the Xmas Series. You haven't heard of it yet? Follow our website the next days to find out more.

So thousands of lasers will ship next week, and thousands will follow the weeks after.

And not only Xmas lasers are shipping in huge quantities, but many more! Have you checked out the latest Laserworld EL-230RGB already?


There are many technical terms and abbreviations in our show laser light industry, which are sometimes difficult to guess or figure out if you're not from the industry. So we extended our laser glossary / dictionary / definitions page with further terms and abbreviations. It is available in English and German.

So there was a laser performance with the use of a laser harp controller, in German called "Laserharfe", at the German TV Show "Das Supertalent" tonight. Ralf Schink even entered the second round of the show, the so called "recall". (

A laser harp ("Laserharfe") is a really nice tool for artistic performances. See more here:


The International Laser Display Association - abbreviated ILDA - has turned 30 years yesterday.

Congratulations and thank you for the efforts during the past years!

The show laser industry has changed a lot in the last years and the change process is still ongoing. It's not always easy for an industry association to cope with such tremendous changes to a market. So even though some ILDA members are looking back to the "good ol' times", the new laser show market brings up new challenges: It's hard for an industry association to be loved by everyone, as all members are more or less competitors as well. But this is the nature of such an association, and the major challenge is to represent the general interest of the industry to governments and authorities in the countries of the members. 

Patrick Murphy, the present ILDA Exectutive Director, does a pretty good job in gathering all the different input, so thanks for that as well.

The Laserworld Group is ILDA member with all their companies as brands, so associated are Laserworld (Switezrland) AG, Laserworld USA Inc., HB-Laser, tarm, SwissLas - and many more, see on

This is special: The new tarm two is an awesome product. Not only is it very powerful (specified at 2.5W after aperture, I measured 2.7W RGB), but it also comes with professional, fast scanning for precise graphics projections. The whole enclosure is built of aluminium ans is extremely rugged.
The tarm two is definitely woth a closer look. Even though it is meant as substitution for the smaller RTI ATTO units, the price is extremely low.
It's suitable for nightclub installations, mobile use, rental and professional productions - nearly any kind of laser show application can be done with the tarm two.

As there were questions in social media about the white balance: For what I have tested, the white balance of the tarm two is great! Even though it is possible to individually adjust the color balance with the trim pots on the back of the laser system.

So I did some wedding laser show recently and thought that some of you might be interested in seeing some background details on how this can be done. So I took some short video and explained the general setup. I hope that the importance of haze and fog becomes clear from this video - there were three lasers, but 6 fog or haze machines, and we could have used even more.
So watch out when doing an outdoor laser show: Always make sure to have sufficient fog and haze and then take at least 2 extra fog machines ;-) .

Oh, by the way: I used the Laserworld Showeditor for doing this show, as the LAN connection really eased up the whole setup. So it was one fully licensed Showeditor ShowNET in place, and another ShowNET interface as Slave (the satellites were run x-axis mirrored and wired with standard ILDA cable). So the whole laser show control software solution (LAN, two interfaces) was at a price point below 500 € (at current pricing seen in different online stores).


That is really crazy: More than 260 free laser shows available for Laserworld Showeditor!

Have a look at the free laser show collection!

I added two new calculators to the Laserworld Toolbox yeasterday: The NOHD calculator and the SZED flashblindness calculator. Both calculators can be used for determining safety distances for lasers, especially in aircraft safety context.

Sometimes authorities require the hazard distance values for sky-laser outdoor beams, and these two are the most common ones.
