Pangolin’s all new SafetyScan lenses provide an incredibly easy and affordable way to increase the safety of your laser light shows. The technology used to create these lenses has taken us years to develop, but the wait has been well worth it as we are now able to provide you with this great safety solution.
Our SafetyScan lenses are a uniquely designed series of “half lenses” which are coated with a special anti-reflective coating on both the front and rear surfaces. These lenses increase the divergence of the laser beam when scanning downward into the audience, but not when projecting overhead. This allows you to create a stunning laser light show, and keep the beams which project on the audience at a fun and safe level while not affecting the overhead beams at all. The end result is a visually-impactful and powerful show, which is much safer and more enjoyable for those in the audience to view.
You can watch our SafetyScan demonstration video, in which we discuss the SafetyScan lenses, and give you a demonstration of how to use them, and how to pick the right lens for your application.
We recommend that you purchase the complete lens set, so that you have all of the lenses at your disposal for any event you may be at. But to help you choose the best lens for your application, we have created a SafetyScan Lens manual, which you can download for free by clicking here. This manual provides a chart, which takes into account the laser projector’s power level and distance to the audience, and helps you choose the right lens for your show. If you need further assistance on choosing the correct lens for your application, please feel free to contact us directly.
Incorporating a SafetyScan lens to use with your projector is very easy. We designed these lenses to work with all types of laser projectors. Simply mount the lens in front of the output window of your laser projector. Due to the diversity of the laser projectors currently in the field, we have left the options and choices for mounting the lenses flexible and up to each client.
Pangolin is currently working on a universal lens mount, which would allow you to mount the lens on virtually any laser projector.
Pangolin currently makes six different SafetyScan lenses that are available for purchase, ranging from -1 diopter to -6 diopter in focal length. You can purchase these lenses individually for specific applications, or you can purchase the complete lens set, which includes all six lenses inside of a custom made carrying case. When you purchase the complete lens set, or when you purchase six of the same lenses in a single order, you will receive a discount for your quantity purchase. Please contact Pangolin directly for pricing and ordering information.
Clients have posed the question “if I increase the divergence of the beam, won’t it make my show appear to be less powerful?” The answer is NO! The technology used in our SafetyScan lenses creates a visual effect which is generally not perceptible by the viewers. Since our lenses only increase the divergence of the beams which scan into the audience, and do not affect the beams which project overhead, your audience will not be able to detect the slight increase in divergence of the beams touching them. And the result is actually a much more pleasant and enjoyable show experience for your audience. No more turning your head because the lasers were too much for your eyes to handle, now your audience can watch the entire show with ease and enjoy each moment.
But do not take our word for it, check out this testimonial from world renowned laserists Alberto Kellner from Laser Entertainment Milano and from Maurice Wortel of Laser Extreme in the Netherlands, and listen to their comments as they experienced the SafetyScan lenses for themselves at the Prolight + Sound Exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany.
