Glossary, Definitions


What does PPS stand for?

PPS means Points Per Second and describes the speed of show laser scanning systems. That's how many laser points per second can be displayed on walls and other suitable surfaces. The more PPS the better the scanning device of a laser projector and the smoother the laser graphics & animations are displayed.

Why is the scan speed in your Laserworld Shop characterized as [email protected]°ILDA?

[email protected]°ILDA is the most common way to describe the scan speed and makes it that different show laser projectos are comparable. kpps means thousand (kilo) points per second. @8°ILDA is the scan speed at a scan angle of 8°. The wider the scan angle, the slower the scan speed gets. But scan speed doesn't work linear, so you can't simply calculate scan speeds with other scan angles.
