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.

Since tarm has joined the Laserworld Group, a lot of development work happende in the background. Especially the close cooperation with RTI lead to a completely new product range, that was especially designed for substituting teh RTI FEMTO and RTI ATTO systems and to match or even beat the price point of the Pure Micro lasers. 

When I tested the first prototypes, I was very impressed by the beam specification, the scanning but most impressed by the browser interface for the system configuration. The touch pads on the NANO, PIKO and FEMTO systems were already great - but the browser interface brings even more ease to the general pre-show setup and even allows for modifications during a show.
Configuring the lasers wuith my mobile phone worked like a charm:

The Laserworld Garden Series products are primarily no designed for professional show use, however they are a great gadget for the use in the garden, at parties, Halloween, Thanksgiving and as Christmas decoration. So this product is not only interesting to laserists, but to pretty much everybody.
Since last month we offer palletized point of sale displays, each equipped with 16 lasers of the Garden Series. The display is sized 60 x 40 x 180 cm, so itˋs base size is a quarter Euro pallet.

If youˋre interested, please mail me:

The Laserworld Showeditor has been very successfully released end of 2015. Even though there have been previous versions of the Showeditor (2007, 2011, etc), it has not been distributed for more than three years. 

There have been many changes to the industry in the meantime and the features of the products have been improved since. So there was the idea to publish a free version of the Laserworld Showeditor ILDA software to allow for the export of ILDA files for the use with SD-card playback laser systems or for easy interchanging of files between different laser show software.


The Showeditor FREE can be downloaded here: http://free.showeditor.com

I drew a short graph showing how the Showeditor FREE can be used in combination with SD-card capable laser systems, like the Laserworld PRO-800RGB or the Laserworld PRO-1600RGB

The Laserworld Showeditor software has been in the market for quite some time until it has been discontinued in 2012. Now, in 2015, there is a new, fresh version of Laserworld Showeditor available again. A lot has been improved - especially the manuals have been rewiorked from scratch and there are new video tutorials. The philosophy of Showeditor is different to some of the other laser software programs in the market, but this has several advantages.
The software is not a beta release, it is fully grown and has been developed over the past years. It is continuously improved. The past versions of Showeditor came with a USB interface - the Showeditor 2015 comes standard with the ShowNET interface - a LAN/network interface with playback feature. The LAN connection helps a lot if it comes to longer wiring distances, where the ILDA cable is pretty limited.

It's a great choice for live laser shows as well as for timeline laser shows - both show types can be handled with Laserworld Showeditor. Touch screens are supported, so using the live show interface with a touch screen allows for very easy show control. And of course it's possible to use a MIDI or DMX controller for remote controlling the software.
I suggest to check out the software: http://www.showeditor.com
T
here is also a support forum on that page, where questions and problems arediscussed and solutions are published.

In general it is strongly recommended to have a closer look at the tutorials and videos before you try to getting started: https://www.showeditor.com/de/tutorials-faq/tutorials.html

Spectacular lighting effects become possible with the new Laserworld BeamBars. I tested them in several venues, and the effect is great! it of course makes sense to use several units, instead of only one or two, to extend the effect. There are different models available: Different colors and different power levels allow for venue specific designs and setups. And the price point is great, combined to many (or most?) similar solutions in the market.

Laserworld is active in many countries for a long time. However, working with own offices makes it easier to address local customers in a countra or region - but is a significant challenge to the work within a company group: Not only is it required to permanently exchange information and data between the offices and the headquarters, it is also necessary to bring all the information about company, brands and products to the potential customers in the very area.
To ease this, we developed an automated system to provide up-to-date data on different websites in different countries - with translated content by native speakers of our industry. Especially our retailers and distribution partners benefit from the product datafeeds, that are available in 10 different languages, with daily updated price- and product information.

If you wnat to learn more about our product datafeeds and the automation options, please mail me:

The Laserworld DS-1800RGB is known as a decent pure diode laser system. People sometimes wonder what size could be played with that kind of laser, so I took 4 Laserworld DS-1800RGB units to a live show event in a city hall in south Germany to see how the systems would do.
The results were great! I used Phoenix Live in combination with an AKAI midi controller - and tested some soon-to-come-but-still-secret, new solution :-) .

The whole show worked out pretty well and the power was just right. I could have used some stronger units, but qould have needed to dim down power for the audience area much more. So good results though!
