30 Laseworld laser systems at EDC Las Vegas main stage
Like every year, Las Vegas was also dominated by the three day mega event Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in 2014. More than 400.000 music fans from all over the world celebrated a giant festival with the most popular DJs for electronic music on 8 stages. More than 30 high power laser systems from Laserworld Group were applied on the main stage, “Kinetic Field”. The Laser Shows were staged by Lasertainment, Laserworld’s partner, who was the exclusive supplier for laser show
equipment on this stage. Insomniac Events realized the overall show production.
Laser Shows at a scale like EDC are quite a challenge – especially if time code synchronized as well as live operated systems is required. To get the most out of the high end laser systems, an individual control of every single unit was required. Lasertainment brought highly experienced laser show
operators from Europe with many years of live stage experience to create the extraordinary show.
The RTI NANO
and PIKO laser light systems were controlled with Lasergraph DSP controllers (one per each laser) and a Grand MA 2 live control. Besides that, a 60 minutes time code synchronized show for 9 DJ intros were implemented. As the Front of House was about 260 ft. from the stage, the whole laser control signal was transmitted with glass fiber, later on with CAT6 cables, to avoid any signal problems.
A good outdoor laser show
requires well distributed fog or haze all over the area to create the most spectacular impressions. At EDC Las Vegas there were more than 60 fog/haze machines present at main stage to ensure sufficient effects support for the lasers.
Due to the very low humidity of only 5%, the continuous wind and the dust in the air the most durable systems for such conditions were requested. The whole show worked perfect, the setup was done in 2 days & nights. The two rehearsal days showed that all systems worked more than well.

HB-Laser merges with the Laserworld Group
Since July 2014 HB-Laserkomponenten GmbH is a part of the Laserworld Group and underlines Laserworld being the world leader in the field of manufacturing and distribution of show laser light systems.
Martin Werner, CEO at Laserworld, accompanied several partnerships and new start-ups with the Laserworld Group in the past years, where he sees an obvious trend: “In an increasingly difficult niche-market, consolidating is essential to configure in a way to be competitive and at the same time provide products that perfectly meet the requirements of the customers. Achieving this in such a specialized industry like ours is only possible with a strong team of highly qualified individuals; Laserworld provides the ideal framework for this!”
The company network already spans the whole world. The very companies maintain their independence, identity and brand structures, but can further focus on their core business fields. HB-Laser, one of the leading suppliers in German market perfectly fits this philosophy:
About 25 years ago, Harald Bohlinger founded HB-Laser and is undoubtedly one of the veteran companies in show laser light industry. The core competencies are not only the development and manufacturing of professional show laser light systems but also multi-media and laser show
production services. The achievements and merits of HB-Laser have been awarded with over 32 national and international awards already.
The new structure of the Laserworld Group brings up promising, new potential. The already well-established marketing structures as well as the dense sales network of Laserworld become infused by HB-Laser’s long-year experience and knowledge on the technical level as well as with customer support in project planning and implementation of laser show
and multi-media show productions. Further synergistic effects can also be achieved in many other areas, such as development, manufacturing, purchase, logistics and sales.
Lutz Bartl, CEO at HB Laser, expects more than one big step forward: “Despite substantial market changes in our industry over the past years, we at HB-Laser were always up to date with innovations; we drove them forward and developed new products and solutions. We also saw Laserworld completely changing the whole show laser light market in a very short time. We are now in the position to participate in this and increase our presence in the market and industry, the advantages for our customers are more than obvious! “
Brand new scanner product family: ScannerMax by Pangolin Systems – available for many Laserworld products now!
Pangolin ScannerMax is a brand new scanner system family created by Pangolin Systems. Scanner systems (Galvos) like these are used for rapidly deflecting a single laser beam to create patterns or effects. ScannerMax scanners are designed for industrial as well as show purposes, so there are a variety of possible applications. Especially the laser show
industry requires professional and accurate scanner solutions: To create spectacular laser shows
it is essential to deflect the laser beam extremely fast, so that the patterns, graphics and pictures projected don’t appear to be flickering.
Laserworld offers Pangolin ScannerMax galvos for many of their professional laser light systems, like for most SwissLas and several RTI units. The quality of the ScannerMax scanners is superior to the standard solution, so especially more professional users may want to go for the upgrade.
More ScannerMax solutions are in development at the moment, but the ScannerMax 506 is already available to a larger scale. It speeds at more than 35’000 pps at 8° (ILDA Standard) and can do a maximum scan angle of up to 80°! More professional users will appreciate the step response time at 2° optical with only 0.18msec and the great linearity of 99.8%.
For RTI products, Laserworld offers the ScannerMax Upgrade together with the high performance RayScan HP scanner driver. For SwissLas products, a special SwissLas scanner driver is used – with optimized tuning for the SwissLas laser systems.
