A multimedia show is an entertainment event where several forms of media, such as audio, video, light etc. are included. Show laser projections, as beams, graphics and texts, are combined with effects like fire, pyrotechnics, water, video projections, music and the like. All these effects create impressive multimedia shows together with the right music, especially highlighted and underlined by the laser effects.
