Pangolin Laser Systems Inc.; the world’s leading provider of laser light show control software and hardware for the entertainment industry, was recently honored at the 2012 International Laser Display Association (ILDA) Conference, where the company and their client’s took home an overwhelming forty percent of the total awards given out this year.
ILDA is currently the world’s leading trade organization for the laser display and entertainment industry, and an ILDA Award is considered by many to be the most prestigious award given in this field.

Pangolin Laser Systems Inc. received two ILDA awards for technical achievement at this year’s conference taking home a first place ILDA Technical Achievement Award for their revolutionary new Safety Scan Lenses, which help ensure audience-scanning laser light shows are safe but still visually-impactful (http://www.pangolin.com/SafetyScanLens/). And they received another award for technical achievement, for their new VRAD 1510 Rotary Actuator, which has uses in both laser light show displays and also in industrial laser applications (http://www.pangolin.com/NEWSLETTER/RotaryActuators/VRA1510.pdf).
In addition, Pangolin clients from eight different companies then went on to win another fifteen ILDA Awards for work being done in the field of laser display and entertainment, where Pangolin Laser Control Systems were used as the primary means to create the laser show content. These awards were given in a variety of different categories, including laser graphic and abstract shows, beams and screen shows, nightclub and festival shows, live stage shows, laser used in video/film, innovative applications, and laser photography.
