What some may consider the "holy grail" of laser effects, audience scanning is the act of intentionally projecting laser light into the audience, allowing the audience to actively interact with the laser light.
What are audience scanning lasers?
An audience scanning laser system is a certified laser show projector that can legally and safety perform audience scanning laser shows. In the United States, for a laser projector to become audience scanning certified it will need Pangolin's PASS hardware installed. PASS is the only FDA approved audience scanning safety system in the United States.
How can I perform audience scanning effects?
To safety and legally perform audience scanning laser shows there are several rules and steps you must follow to ensure your show is compliant.
Many of these safety rules are specific to the United States, but are generally applicable anywhere in the world.
- Your laser projector must be fitted with Pangolin's PASS hardware.
- You will need to obtain your LSO (Laser Safety Operator) license, or hire a LSO.
- You will need a light meter (such as the ILT2500) and the knowledge of accurately measuring and modifying the output of power from a laser system.
