We've received a lot of questions from clients, asking for more informaiton about ZONES inside of Pangolin software, and how to use zones to create better laser shows.

A zone is (essentialy) a tool inside of all Pangolin software, that allows you to output laser content to different projection areas, from a single or multiple laser projectors.

For example, if you have one laser, and you wanted to project an atomospheric effect over people's heads, and at the same time project a graphic/logo in another area, you could use our zones tool to help configure this. Zones go much deeper, but this provides a basic idea of what a zone is, and how it might be used in a real world scenario. 

Another example of using a zone, is if you wanted multiple types of atomostpheric laser effects to be projected (perhaps a wave in one area, and hot beams in another area), you can use the zones settings to configure this in Pangolin laser software. 

We've created the following Pangolin Tutorial video, to help address the commonly asked questions "what is a zone", "how do I use zones to create better laser shows", "how do I setup a zone", etc. 

We hope you find this informational. More tutorials are coming, and if you have a request for future tutorials, share it with us!

Laser Projectors need LASORB

Ever wonder why your laser projector or modules fail short of their estimated lifespan? One of the main causes of premature death of your laser equipment is likely electrostatic discharge (ESD) or a power surge. Check out this video, which discusses LASORB – a very small, affordable component, that your laser projector manufacturer can build into the products they sell you, which will help to ensure your valuable laser products, don't die from ESD or power surges. So, be sure to ask the question before you buy… "Is my projector protected by LASORB"? — And save yourself a headache down the road.
