Mouse – QuickShow can be controlled with one hand in case we need the other to change the lights (or reach for a drink!).

Keyboard – On the computer screen we have 60 mapped playback queues (6 rows of 10 windows each), each triggered by pressing the key assigned to it.

Touchscreen – The multitude of parameters and playback queues available on the computer screen can be easily grasped via the touchscreen, which greatly speeds up our work.

MIDI controller – QuickShow provides us with the ability to map a MIDI controller to individual queues or program functions.

DMX controller – as with MIDI, we can assign QuickShow laser functions and frames to specific DMX channels

The QuickShow kit comes with a USB/ILDA Flashback 3 converter to control one laser system. To present several independent frames on several laser sources, the user can expand his system with an additional 5 Flashback 3 cards.

There is nothing quite as beautiful, a well-prepared show will take your breath away and long remain in the memory of the audience. It is difficult to compare it to anything, perhaps to lightning that pierces the sky, inspiring fear and awe at the same time.

It depends on whether the show is the main attraction, a side item or a form of advertising.
If it is to be the main attraction we try to make it a combination of lasers, music and effect lights. We have ready-made shows that we present to clients, of course, we are able to design a show for the individual needs of the client, including company signs, animation and special music. Using lasers, we can display graphics and videos of huge size, for example, on a building. For example, a 50 X 50m company logo displayed on a skyscraper looks great. We have a system that allows quizzes and voting via SMS and display the results by laser. We are currently working on implementing 3D projection.

The earlier the better – for two reasons. The first reason is that there is not always a free date, the second is that there will be more time to think carefully about the details of the show.
We can prepare a simple show overnight and to direct a show with complex graphics or animation with several lasers may require a team of people to work for a month.

The operation of professional laser systems should be handled by people specially trained to do so. Of course, there are very simple lasers available on the market, which, when plugged in, generate shapes and simple graphics by themselves – no secret knowledge is needed to operate them. Laser systems sold and used in the EU should have CE certification. They should also have warning and information plates that include their parameters and class of operation.

The price of a laser show mainly depends on the number and power of lasers as well as the difficulty of preparing the show itself, designing graphics, animation and synchronizing it with music. The price for a simple show starts at about 2000,00 and ……… it is difficult to determine the upper limit. With a very demanding client, for whom the most important thing is that the show is unique and one of a kind can be amounts even tens of thousands of zlotys.

The distance from which laser shows can be seen depends on their power and outdoor conditions. Even a 20W laser will not be visible on a sunny day, while a 0.3W laser can delight an audience gathered in a completely darkened room. In our experience, lasers as low as 5W produce super effects for outdoor shows and large indoor arenas, 0.5W lasers are sufficient for small intimate rooms. In all cases, the best effects are when using several synchronized lasers. We have done laser shows for 100,000 people.

Today’s laser systems can generate light of any color (16million colors), obtained from a combination in various proportions of the RGB primary colors (red, green, blue). There are many computer programs for creating and displaying laser shows, the most popular of which include FIESTA software from Kvant and PANGOLIN PRO from Pangolin. With the help of these programs you can create any graphics, videos and simple beam shows, you can synchronize laser shows with music, effect lighting and video files (Pangolin).

Of course, lasers can be dangerous, especially in the hands of amateurs, when the devices are of poor quality and do not meet basic safety standards.
The rules for working with lasers are regulated by special standards. As a device that emits a high-energy beam of light, lasers must be used in compliance with safety rules, which, among other things, state that it is absolutely necessary to avoid directing a fixed beam directly at the public, flammable and reflective objects. Permissible MDE (Maximum Permissible Emission) levels have been developed, which must not be exceeded!

The dimensions of a 5W solid-state laser system are about 80x80x30cm, and that’s how much space is needed to mount it. However, current standards and regulations that regulate distances from flammable objects, people and animals should be taken into account.
Placement depends on the “vision” of the stage designer, lighting director or laser designer. The small size and weight of solid-state systems allow them to be installed almost anywhere. We have already mounted lasers on chimneys, towers, in mines underground, on cranes, etc. When doing so, remember to observe all safety measures.

In solid-state lasers, the light-generating element is a solid, and they are most often powered by a single-phase 220V power supply and cooled by air.
They are now widely used in the entertainment, advertising and presentation industries, replacing the older generation of Argon- and Krypton-based gas lasers, which usually require a 380V three-phase power supply to operate, consume about 18,000W of power, and are cooled by water at a flow rate of 15l/min.

Various types of lasers are used to perform laser shows, However, due to the rapid development of technology, the elimination of water as a cooling medium, solid-state lasers are very quickly displacing the old cumbersome solutions that required water cooling and 380V power supply. Today, the most popular systems are based on YAG semiconductor lasers with a wavelength of 532nm (green light). Increasingly, you can also find small RGB lasers with built-in effects.

No, it does not shine more strongly. It has a different wavelength of 532nm and the human eye is about three times more sensitive to this particular wavelength.
