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.

PLS 2017 was fantastic – thank you everyone for stopping by! I had so many interesting and exciting conversations and I appreciate everyone’s positive response to the new products and features!

If you have missed out on the spectacular display of product capabilities with the projections on miniatures (OK, still up to 6m high) of the Yan’An temple, the Anaklia Bridge and the Al Bahr towers, have a look at our show recap videos and pictures!

Thanks to laserfabrik GmbH for the fantastic show production and project implementation, as well as to the bright GmbH for the conceptual ideas for the original projects.

Thanks to Karoline Hinz for the creation of the awesome models of buildings we used to project onto at our booth. It was a true challenge to create these large sculptures – from the artistic as well as of the craftsmanship point of view.

Thanks also to Johnathan Lewis, the DJ Tutor, for his extraordinary help and support and for his professional DJ sets during our stand parties in the evening. Thanks as well to Erik van Schijndel who joined in with DJing as well. Great job!

Here are some pictures and videos of our exhibition booth:

Z o.o. does not have the right to use our intellectual property, is blocked from sourcing from Laserworld and does not remove the product listings from their website, even though they have been given the last deadline for this at 23.11.2016, we must assume that this behavior of Music Store Poznań is with fraudulent background.

As I struggled for some days to download the latest version of the Coherent PowerMax USB PC software, I called Coherent to find out that the whole software download section for their products was moved due to their new website. So the relevant data ended up on a page somewhere in nowhere, blocked by robots.txt, so Google wasn't able to index it.
So if you're also on the search for software for Coherent measurement devices, here you can download Software for PowerMax, ModeMaster, LaserCheck, PowerMax-Pro, WaveMaster, LabMax-Pro, LaserCam, etc:


The demand for reliable, branded lasers is rising:

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.

English Laser Glossary:

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
