    Default Laser Show to LED wall?

    Anyone have any ideas on how to convert a laser show to an LED wall display? Any of the software packages offer this already? Any program to convert ILDA frames to pixel info?

    Thanks

    Umm. Doesn't Beyond have "Virtual Laser" output for video projectors?
    Couldn't you just send that to the led wall via HDMI/DP and let the wall tech convert it to what he needs at his end?
    If in doubt... Give it a clout?

    Alternatively, couldn't you just video tape the preview window of the show or film a live laser show?

    This is what I was thinking, but wondered if there was a cleaner way of doing it.

    Yeah, Beyond's EMUlaser is probably the cleanest way to do this as this it is purpose-built for the task.

    Chamsys MagicQ has a live media streamer.
    Install the Chamsys software on the laser machine, define the laser preview window as the screen capture area and send the live feed to the Chamsys media engine via a network connection.

    You are using Bonetti's defense against me, ah?

    I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain.

    I think the pixel pushers can do real time screen scraping. ping heroic.

    You can do realtime screen to pixel mapping with Jinx. It's also free and can work with arduino and many other controllers.. including over art net.. .no need for a pixel pusher
