KVANT ON PROLIGHT & SOUND 2023

There was a time – I promise you! – when lasers appeared mainly in science fiction literature, usually as a means of destroying enemy military facilities and vehicles (often from space). They were credited with supernatural abilities, but it did not occur to any of the authors that these devices would not only find their place in the entertainment industry, but also become a standard and even indispensable element of the stage design during the largest stage events, as is the case in present times.

One of the producers of this type of laser systems, which can be found in many places around the world, is a company based in our neighbor, Slovakia, i.e. Kvant Lasers. It introduced its new products, among others: to Frankfurt am Main, to the Prolight & Sound fair. The first model on display there, the 40 FB4, belongs to the Clubmax family.

This device is intended for use both indoors and outdoors. It has a minimum power of three and a maximum of forty watts. In the case of a laser, this is quite a lot. This power means that it can be used to generate typical laser beams, effects, and large-scale mapping. 40 FB4 generates the full RGB color palette with very high color precision, and the light beam is modeled using motorized dichroic filters. The clever solution of connecting effect filters at the laser outlet makes it possible to obtain additional visual effects.

Kvant Lasers Epic 100 & Epic 270

Although 40 watts is a lot for a laser, it does not mean that Kvant Lasers does not offer more powerful devices. They are, of course! For example, the second one exposed at PL&S, the Epic 100 laser scanner, with a power of 100 watts. Like its brothers from the Epic family, it is fully adapted to work in permanent outdoor installations, which is confirmed by the IP65 resistance class, and enables obtaining atmospheric, abstract and graphic effects in a full range of colors. The most powerful in the family is the Epic 270, featuring the power of – yes, you guessed it! – 270 watts.

Kvant Lasers Atom 58

The third novelty from Kvant Lasers is the Atom 58 laser projector, which is a development of the previously presented 42 model. This line is a technological bridge between the Clubmax family and the flagship Spectrum series. The laser beam generation system is based on a diode system. The Atom casing is made of aluminum foam, making the device relatively light (31 kilograms), and additionally covered with a scratch-resistant coating.

Kvant Lasers Logolas

And finally, the fourth structure presented at the Kvant Lasers exhibition is Logolas, a laser display capable of displaying inscriptions, various logos, advertisements, markings, etc., as well as illuminating architecture, which is facilitated by the system of mounting additional filters, as in the Clubmax series. Therefore, it is a device with an IP65 tightness class.

The described lasers can be controlled – depending on the model – using the ArtNet, DMX, ETH or ILDA protocols, and buyers will receive free Pangolin QuickShow software for preparing shows, which can be downloaded from the website. All models are supplied with basic wiring, security keys, an external safety switch, and an operating manual on a pendrive.
