Chemical Brothers “Born in the Echoes Tour” – By ER Productions

With the release of their first studio album in five years, Born in the Echoes, The Chemical Brothers are back with their trademark laser show and heavy dance beat. The use of lasers has been a predominant force at Chemical Brothers shows. In fact the duo still utilize two 10-watt lasers they have personally owned for years. The production also carries 3 x 30-watt lasers and 2 x 21w All Taipan from E R Productions (, which they stagger across the stage for a huge display of stunning laser effects.

Two large robots stand upstage on each side. Each robot was outfitted with ER Productions Beamburst Laser unit to emit laser beams from the robots eyes. Because of the many shows scheduled for the tour, most of the lights and lasers were designed to be layered on the floor, as a unique package that can be easily rolled on and off stage with minimum setup time. Pangolin’s BEYOND software configured with SMPTE Timecode runs everything that they carry, from lights to lasers and video.

Two ARCTOS 10w 15 years old laser projectors owned by the Chemical Brothers were accompanied by ER Production’s 4 x BeamBurst lasers and 5 scanning laser heads.

Timecode synchronized with Pangolin’s industry leading BEYOND software and FB4 network hardware control all of the lasers on this tour.

Pangolin Clients once again, win the majority of ILDA Awards

The ILDA awards are considered by many, to be the “Oscars” for the laser display and entertainment industry. And at the 2015 ILDA Conference and Awards Ceremony (hosted by Mr.

Abdulwahab Baghdadi, of 3rd Dimension Event Tech), Pangolin clients once again took home the majority of ILDA Awards received, further proving that Pangolin’s laser show control platform provides clients with the tools, features, and programs needed, to create award-winning works of laser art.

What made this year’s event so special, was to see how improvements in laser control technology (including advancements in laser software and hardware) are further allowing laserists around the world to create stunning laser displays, faster and easier than ever before.

Events and shows that once would have taken clients weeks or even months to program and prepare, can now be done in just hours or days, using new features available in software programs including Pangolin BEYOND and Pangolin QuickShow. And advancements in hardware control (with new network hardware like FB4) are now allowing laserists as well as lighting designers, to control shows in a whole new way – because with FB4s new proprietary network protocol, the need to use the outdated ILDA cable, is gone. This is allowing clients to run their entire show via a network setup, reducing setup times, and allowing clients to perform more complex and sophisticated laser shows – thus, leading to more award winning content and shows, for those using Pangolin’s platform.

In addition, FB4 allows for complete control of a laser show from a lighting desk or DMX console. Simply create content in BEYOND, save it to FB4s memory, and control that content from the console of your choice. And, FB4 can be built inside of a laser projector, simplifying the setup of large scale laser shows. So now clients only need to run network and power to the back of a laser, and they are setup and ready to go.

Advancements in laser technology like this, are what is helping clients around the world create bigger, better, and more intricate laser shows, in a faster, easier and more affordable manner. These are just some of the reasons why at this year’s ILDA Conference and Awards Ceremony, we see that those using Pangolin technology have once again taken home the vast majority of awards that were won. With Pangolin’s ongoing laser developments, those using these technologies have a much larger arsenal of tools and features at their disposal, allowing them to create more stunning and sophisticated laser performances.

Pangolin’s Chief Operating Officer Justin Perry was also quoted in saying… “While we are very proud of the new technologies we are releasing to market, and while we can see how these are allowing clients to create better laser shows overall, we also realize that the credit at the end of the day, goes to the artists themselves. We are merely providing a paintbrush – if you will. And our clients then take our brush, and go out and create beautiful works of art. So in that regard, out hat goes off to all of the Pangolin clients around the world, who use the tools we provide them with, to create stunning laser and visual displays”.

ZEDD “True Colors” World Tour

Russian-German musician Zedd is currently promoting his second studio album, True Colors on his True Colors world tour, that began on August 6th and will run through November 28, 2015. The tour spans cities across the globe from Singapore to Los Angeles to London.

In addition to his hit songs, Zedd is intentionally debuting never-before-heard songs during the tour so his audience can “live” the songs as he intends – through an intense “True Colors” visual experience. Pyrotecnico was brought on board to amplify that experience with their innovative lasers, pyro, and special FX.

Show tech

In addition to our custom pyrotechnic spinners, close proximity pyrotechnics, flames, cryogenics, confetti/streamers, we have 9 lasers. We utilized Pangolin’s Beyond software and FB3QS hardware to design and control the custom, high powered RGB Spectrum series lasers developed by KVANT. Four of the lasers were spread out across the stage, two were placed in the DJ booth, and three were mounted on the mid-stage truss. The end result is purely captivating and we’re thrilled,” states Pyrotecnico Creative Director Rocco Vitale.
