LASERSHOW DESIGNER 2000

Lasershow Designer 2OOO is the state-of-the-art system for laser show production and presentation. LD2OOO takes the best qualities of Pangolin's multi-award-winning Lasershow Designer series, and adds more speed and more features.
As just one example, you can create raster frames and movies, like the one shown at right.  You can make raster frames with built-in LD2OOO functions.

THE ULTIMATE LASERSHOW SOFTWARE



Lasershow Designer Software/ Hardware is available in three levels Intro Basic and Pro


FEATURES

ENHANCED REALITY PREVIEW
Used to give a near-perfect computer representation for both beams and graphics.
GEOMETRIC CORRECTION
Built in to LD2000 to correct the scanned image, so the laser projector does not have to be exactly lined up with the screen. Parameters include, Size , Position ,Rotation, Linearity, Keystone , Pincushion, Bow and Shear
PROJECTION ZONES
There are 20 projection zones, The use of projection zones allows you to concentrate on the show itself and where various show elements and effects will be projected,
FONTS
You can type words using TrueType fonts or " laser fonts". TrueType fonts come with your Windows operating system.LD2000 provides 26 different laser fonts
DMX
The QM2OOO board controls DMX devices using the 15-pin connector on the board, plus a special 15-pin-to-DMX cable included with all LD2OOO systems. Up to 512 DMX devices can be controlled. Note that the QM2OOO provides DMX out only. There is no DMX input -- the LD2OOO system cannot be controlled by DMX signals. In the LD2OOO and Showtime programs, DMX devices are controlled using special "DMX frames". A DMX frame has all of the characteristics of normal laser frames (points, colors), but it also contains additional DMX information. This information is used by Showtime to control the DMX device's pan, tilt, gobo, color, brightness, and other characteristics. Lasershow Designer 2OOO comes with a large number of pre-defined DMX frames.
COLOR SYSTEM
Three separate color balance selections to choose from: Fully Balanced, High Saturation and High Power.
The Fully Balanced selection is designed to provide perfect color rendition, especially for raster frames.
The High Saturation selection is designed to provide fully saturated red, green and blue colors and is especially well suited for vector frames or audience scanning effects.
The High Power selection is designed to provide the laser's full power, at the possible expense of color balance. This is especially suited for raw beams and beam effects where you want to ensure that the laser's full power will be used.
ADVANCED FRAME PROPERTIES
In LD2OOO, frames can be of several types including Point-oriented, Vector-oriented, Raster, Abstract and DMX.
CLIPART CATEGORIES
Clipart categories system. You can use this along with the Clipart Search Engine to further aid in quickly finding and identifying frames.
SECURITY
Secure individual frames or blocks of frames, to control distribution of these frames amongst authorized users of your choosing.
RASTER FRAME IMPROVEMENTS
As you adjust the various raster parameters, you will immediately see the results on the computer screen and also on the laser if the 'Show output on laser' checkbox is checked. 'Output Size' adjustment. affects the entire frame as it will be created in the .
CLIPART SEARCH ENGINE
Clipart Search Engine
Search for frames with a particular clipart category.
DRAWING WINDOW IMPROVEMENTS
LD2000 Pro users can change the 3D angle by simply clicking and dragging the mouse in the drawing window. Note that 3D view must be selected in order for this to work.

BENEFITS:

* Smaller QM2OOO PCI board
* Sample rates up to 130,000 points per second
* Frames up to 6000 points
* More timeline events, scenes and modules
* Unlimited number of colors with simpler training
* More memory (32MB standard, expandable up to 256MB)
* Faster operation: Screen redraws are twice as fast and disk operations are ten times as fast
* Higher resolution Abstract Generator for smoother looking abstracts
* Software geometric correction
* Soft-edge clipping for vector frames
* Ability to zoom into point-oriented frames just like vector frames
* Video Synchronization
Ten times more processing power
The LD2OOO system is powered by the all-new QM2OOO board. It is this board which makes available the new hardware and software capabilities. (In fact, you must have the board installed, in order to operate the software. LD2OOO's advanced features depend on the QM2OOO's power.)
This half-sized board fits in the PCI slot available on almost any modern computer or notebook docking station. It's easier to find computers with PCI-bus slots, and the PCI bus has faster data transfer (shows load five times faster, compared with the older ISA-based QM32 board).
The QM2OOO has about ten times the processing power of the older QM32. This lets the board run faster and allows Pangolin to add new software features.
You can get point output rates up to 130,000 pts/sec. Such fast rates are necessary for photo realistic TV-like raster frames.
Frames can be up to 6,000 points in length. This is ideal for faster 50K+ scanners, that can show more points without flicker.
Software geometric correction is built in, so you can get perfectly square images on the laser screen, even if you are projecting off-center (or even if the "screen" is round like a planetarium dome).
Lasershow Designer 2000 is the all-in-one solution. It is so comprehensive that by using a portable computer, your entire laser production system - including synchronized music and on-screen previews - can fit into a carry-on bag. Imagine being on the road, working in your hotel room, while you use LD to create a show for a client:
With a digital camera or camcorder, capture the client's image as a digitized photo. LD's award-winning raster feature turns the image into a TV-like laser-projected photograph.
Load in one of the 5,000 already-drawn laser clip art frames included with LD. Or call up clip art from Corel or other sources and use LD's built-in Auto Trace to convert it into a vector (outline) laser frame. Put an audio CD into the CD drive. Mark beats by tapping the keyboard in time to the music. Then drag-and-drop frames onto the timeline, snapping to the exact musical beats. Preview the show in full color on the computer screen, complete with CD music accompaniment. This is ideal for checking last-minute changes, or for a client approval presentation - no laser projector needed. As you can see, LD has a tremendous variety of features, all designed so you can more easily create client-pleasing productions.

SUPER-FAST LASER PROCESSING

The "secret" to LD's power is its hardware board. Every LD system comes with a Pangolin-manufactured QM2000 PCI Card for your PC. The Card is a self-contained computer with its own microprocessor, memory and projector control outputs. The board gets commands from the LD and Showtime programs. When displaying a frame, or playing a show, the board does this completely on its own, without relying on the host PC. This advanced technology means more reliable shows. In fact, the host PC could even be rebooted during the show, and LD will keep on playing. Used by top companies for the best shows and products
LD2000 is chosen for the world's best shows because of its hardware and software sophistication. For example, one of the largest laser shows in history featured 400 watts of laser power from 16 projectors in Moscow's Lushniki Stadium. Pangolin developed a network so a single operator could run different show material on every projector, using 16 computers equipped with LD. The show producer chose LD specifically because no other system had this much control.
Another reason top companies select Lasershow Designer is because it has an open architecture. If they need specialized features, or if they develop a custom product, they can use Visual Basic or C to control LD. One example is AVI's Omniscan, the world's first 360 degree, full-dome planetarium laser projector. It uses custom software to control the laser, lens, and effects - and to control the LD system used for all graphics and beams.

The LD2OOO system is powered by the all-new  QM2OOO board.  It is this board which makes available the new hardware and software capabilities. (In fact, you must have the board installed, in order to operate the software. LD2OOO's advanced features depend on the QM2OOO's power.)
