Advanced Laser Show Designer's Workshop

LVR Limited are pleased to introduce a unique hands-on practical workshop for designers and operators of laser effects wanting to produce effects that create safe exposure levels for audience illumination. The one-day session is designed to follow on from the knowledge gained from the successful Professional Laser Operators Course, for those who are keen to present effects such as safe audience scanning to their clients. The workshop explores a variety of techniques for achieving exciting safe laser effects, with participants gaining direct hands on experience of designing effects, taking measurements, and evaluating exposure safety.

The workshop considers the use and assessment of a range of different types of laser effects, ranging from traditional galvanometer-scanned effects, diffraction gratings and using Pangolin Safety Scan lenses. In each case, participants are given the opportunity to test and evaluate the laser exposure of such devices; and using some of the latest available techniques - including Pangolin Beyond and the LVR scAn software, and ways to make laser effects safer are tested.
