    Default How many lasers?

    Not a great fan of too many projectors on the basis that often less is more, but this is one of the best multi laser shows I've seen.

    Extremely simple but very effective.

    Looks like an excellent show! Were you there? I agree with you also, sometimes, almost all the time- Less is definitely more! Simple is sometimes the best effects also.

    And before this thread gets taken off track, PLEASE....nobody comment on, "wow, that looks like dangerous crowd scanning!" I think we have all come to the conclusion that it is next to impossible to judge safeness of laser shows from poor youtube videos, pictures, HD videos or pretty much ANY frame of reference other than being there with a meter. Lets just enjoy the video post.

    i think the number of projectors appropriate has to do more with the type of music and skill set of the laserist than a "general rule of thumb" kind of thing

    but i dont pretend to know anything about anything

    No unfortunately. I was just looking on youtube for NRG laser videos when this popped up and I simply had to take a look.

    UGHHH, why is it that these events take place everywhere except in the US? Anyone ever watch the Sensation dvd's? Another huge production that takes place all over the world except in North Amercia.

    Marc, is it me or is it especially dry in the Northeast, particularly in the tri-state area?

    I went to Mysteryland in the Netherlands a few years ago.. It was amazing.. Lasers done by Hugo Bunk.

    I agree that less is more a lot of the time.. I think sometimes just one center laser is more captivating.
