RGB Laser

What is an RGB Laser?

RGB lasers are show laser systems with exactly three color modules: red, green and blue. It doesn't matter if the color sources are DPSS, OPSL oder Diode laser modules. By combining the three colors, whitelight laser effects are possible.


What is the best RGB Laser?

It depends on your venue, which RGB laser suits best for your purposes. The bigger the location, the more output power you will need. If you want to display demanding graphics projections, you'll need RGB lasers with fast scanning systems. For long distance projections, high power and low divergence are required. If you want a good white balance, then a show laser with nearly equal power distribution will be the best choice - e.g. the RTI NANO RGB 30.

Are there show lasers with more colors?

Basically you can display most colors with an RGB laser system that allows for analog modulation by mixing red, green and blue tones. A typical analog-modulated RGB projector has 256 brightness levels for each laser. This gives (256 x 256 x 256) 16,777,216 different available colors. But if you want your laser with a broader chart of color range, we recommend a Rainbow Laser. They add to the common RGB sources the colors cyan and orange, sometimes even lime.
An RGB laser with TTL modulation - color on or off - can display seven colors: red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, yellow, white.

Do I need an RGB Laser?

That depends what you want to do with the laser display. Laserworld also offers single green, single blue and single red laser systems, but for most spectacular show laser lighting effects more colors are recommended.
