Laser Shows at a scale like EDC are quite a challenge – especially if time code synchronized as well as live operated systems is required. To get the most out of the high end laser light systems, an individual control of every single unit was required. Lasertainment brought highly experienced laser show operators from Europe with many years of live stage experience to create the extraordinary show.
The RTI NANO and PIKO laser light systems were controlled with Lasergraph DSP controllers (one per each laser) and a Grand MA 2 live control. Besides that, a 60 minutes time code synchronized show for 9 DJ intros were implemented. As the Front of House was about 260 ft. from the stage, the whole laser control signal was transmitted with glass fiber, later on with CAT6 cables, to avoid any signal problems.
A good outdoor laser show requires well distributed fog or haze all over the area to create the most spectacular impressions. At EDC Las Vegas there were more than 60 fog/haze machines present at main stage to ensure sufficient effects support for the lasers.
“The very low humidity of only 5%, the continuous wind and the dust in the air are a big challenge,” says F. Oliveira from Laserworld USA. “Lasertainment requested the most durable systems for such conditions.”
