    araugh replied to a thread x-laser recall alert in The Lounge
    Sorry it's taken me so long to see and reply to this, LDI is nuts. So in May of this year I was contacted by CDRH about the presence of auto testing modes on some of our DJ level products. When we filed the product report on these laser projectors CDRH approved it with these modes as being...

    Regarding haze, here's a good read: http://www.photonlexicon.com/forums/showthread.php/22853-Looking-for-low-cost-hazer-for-home-use?highlight=haze+versus+fog . For the home use you've described, I have found an inexpensive, decent unit that I've been happy with. Even have used a couple on...

    Here me out, I thought of something cool I hope that shouldn't cost much to make and is pretty cool. So I initiailly got a PicoBit pico projector to check if the optical engine suited a specific commercial project I had in mind and the resolution and brightness just didn't cut it and I found a...

    I used those too but they are translucent. I should have eleborated, current project is just a 10 inch screen, this probably adds more options.

    Most people here use mosquito scrims for laser projection. I'm not sure if it's good enough for video projection though.

    Need a plastic, glass or other flat transparent material, which when projected on from a DLP projector or galvo laser projector, would act like any other projection screen, but the transparent part would remain transparent. I've used several material before ranging from transparent polyethylene...

    I’ll answer your hazer question when I’m not on my phone on a bouncing train into New York City. You really do probably want haze over fog but, it tends to cost more. A good hazed will match or exceed the price of your Mirage.

    Haggling over price when they’re graciously giving you a free DAC may be viewed as poor form. Just sayin’. . Adam is a very generous guy by nature. Sometimes so much so you feel a little awkward. . I have to laugh a little at your comment about this being the only laser purchase. I never...

    I finally got around to putting pics of the holograms gathered over the last 35 years onto my site for the old lasers, and thought some here might like to check-'em out. A bunch still need more information to be added, and some of the info I have may be incorrect, so it's a work in progress. ...

    Sans the heatpipes what AAXA has as an OEM unit seems 1:1 identical to this optical engine by a chinese company whose website is linked in the Texas Instruments website. I'm still waiting for a response from them but please check my photos and let me know if you see any difference between the...

    Also, while I'm at it... Are there better solutions than those fog machines to generate smoke in a living room ? Would now be a good time to take up vaping (argh) ? Also, Adam already answered my question about wiggle room. It's definitely more than $50 :)

    Today I've made the power unit fully operational. After that I learnt from scientific articles that in most lab-manufactured Xe lasers the electrodes are made of indium. I was wondering what was the metallic filling in the side arms of the electrodes in my laser tube, it looked like it had been...

    Well looky at DAT. Yeah I'm pretty sure that is DEFINITELY the laser i want and the DAC i want. I'm emailin' Adam back alright. We'll see if it's the $1380 price plus free DAC. How much wiggle room do these laser companies have on price, guys? :) If I can't get more than $50 off of...

    Instead of a rotating polarizing filter wheel, a large aperture liquid crystal cell is used to quickly switch the polarization from horizontal to vertical. With my previous employer, I made electrically switchable hologram optical elements to do the same thing with faster switch times, better...

    An extremely generous offer from X Laser USA. Nice one guys. (BTW to the OP, if buying X-Laser beware another company called X-Laser form the far east as these aren't related and produce a projector that I believe doesn't comply with US Regulations. It's X-Laser USA you want for X-Laser...

    Just open a socket to the DAC. You can't send frames to the Etherdream over the OSC protocol, only using its custom protocol. (I think? Not familiar with the features of the Etherdream v2). But you can control the Etherdream via OSC: DMX output, geometrical correction, colour correction, status...

    If I knew what I had to search and found what you mentioned myself I wouldn't be asking it here instead. "Scalability is important when you're talking about large venues." Who's talking about scalability or large venues? Gimmick or not I want to talk about the technology in an online board, I hope...

    You really have to do your own research. Really bright projectors are way more than twice as costly as ordinary units. Scalability is important when you're talking about large venues. It's actually hard to make a good argument that stereo is more than a once every generation gimmick.

    Please tell me more, never heard of this. Are there any released projectors or projector addons and glasses that have used this technique? If it results in glasses which are less dim it sounds like a superior technique. I understand your point, but projector brightness vs cost has been improving...

    There's also a technology that uses narrow band filters and different rgb for each eye. The really simple answer to projectors for stereo (please 3D is something else entirely) boarding two by two is you throw away so much with any of these techniques that the simplest way to fill a large screen...

    I just got into stereoscopic 3d with projectors and there seem to be two ways to do it: active 3d glasses and 1 projector projecting at 120 Hz, 60 per eye and the glasses blocking one eye at a time, or using 2 projectors overlaying each other displaying at 60 Hz with polarizer filters attached to...
