The possible scan speed of a laser system depends on the scanning system
. The speed is specified in pps (points per second) or kpps (kilo points per second). It describes how fast both mirrors of the scanning system can move and how fast they can deflect the beam. The higher the scan speed, the better and the smoother the laser beam
Important: The possible maximum scan speed depends on the actual scan angle.
To project graphics
it is recommended to at least have 25kpps @ 8° ILDA. Aerial or beam shows
can be created with less speedy scanners
