    Default Displaying Text Messages..

    We use Zion to control one of our bigger lasers but my question is.... Is there a way to display (live) text messages from the crowd ?

    Thank you for your time.

    oops, missed that part, no idea, I would imagine not

    you would have to ask the creators of Zion to see if they have any sort of SMS stuff

    The cheapest way to get Pangolin SMS Laser would be to get a Flashback (FB3), LivePro Licence (needed for IMU), IMU itself, and a GSM modem + SIM.
    That would total around 825.

    BUT: As a "side effect"... you also have the best possible laser show software for live stuff (LivePro ), and Quickshow is also included with the FB3, so could use that for odds and ends if you wanted.

    IMU can also do video output for normal data projectors.

    And no, I'm not on commission
