    Default LDI 2018

    So I’m on the way back from my first LDI in Las Vegas and I’d like to suggest that more of us in the US and elsewhere should make it to Vegas next year. “But that show is for lighting guys”, you say? “Ah contraire”, I reply! In addition to several of our favorite laser companies represented at the show, there were tons of other areas that are applicable to laserists. Staging and rigging, fog solutions, scrims, and dozens of directly applicable to laserist types. Every major entertainment lighting company is well represented with hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment playing shows in many booths. Damn impressive even if you only consider what laserists can expect from clubs and concert environments over the coming year.

    Not enough laserists present? Again I say, Nay! I think there were at least a dozen laserists we know and love there this year on top of the laser manufacturers I referenced earlier. Next year we could have a place where we have dinners and drinks together next year making it a miniLEM!

    Afraid you may get bored anyway? It’s Las Vegas in the quiet time of the year. Shows, restaurants, clubs, (and whatever naughty activities you want) are available. It’s fun! As for me, I spent most of my time with the X-Laser crew (which are a ton of fun) and Swamidog (my laser wife) and his girlfriend this year. It sure would be nice to spend quality time with more of you next year!

    What do you think?

    Yeah, I actually felt myself sort of lamenting the fact that I've never given LDI a thought. With all the pictures and updates from so many people, this sounds like it should be on the radar for perhaps next year. Sadly, it's over a weekend but, if it's the same corresponding weekend next year, I just have two back to back church banquets on Saturday at this point so, staff can handle those without a problem.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing, but it is a school week. Perhaps one or two days absent wouldn't be the end of the world. . .

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    I thought the same thing on my first trip there. I enjoyed looking at sequin theatrical curtains from Rose, stage lift mechanisms for grand pianos, confetti cannons, intelligent lighting, trusses, road cases, lasers, and much more. I kept going back to the GLP tent for repeat doses of how they do lighting in Germany, with sunglasses issued at the door.

    This is the world record breaker for number of laser projectors used in a show. I didn't see it in person myself, but it was damn impressive:
