The second Pangolin User Meeting for 2006 was held October 11-12, 2006, within the Discotheque Hemkade48 in Zaandam close to downtown Amsterdam. This was a tremendous meeting, with over 70 people in attendance! The meeting was spread over two days, with the content of the first day was similar to Pangolin User Meetings of the past, and the content of the second day was almost exclusively dedicated to LivePRO. Special thanks goes to Hugo Bunk of Laser Image who organized the meeting as well as supplying all equipment. (Pictures of the meeting can be found here.)

        The general format of the first day was as follows:

  • Introduction to Pangolin staff, as well as Hugo Bunk and Glenn Turner who served as support personnel

  • General discussion of the LD2000 system, as well as add-on programs such as Lasershow Converter MAX and FLASH

  • Lunch

  • Presentation of Watchout video software by Adela Kriland

  • Pangolin Prize competition

  • T-shirt give-away

  • Dinner

  • Pangolin-style "LASE-OFF"

Introduction to Pangolin and Staff

During this portion of the meeting, Pangolin’s president William Benner introduced Pangolin Laser Systems and staff member Hayden Hale, as well as Hugo Bunk and Glenn Turner.

Discussion of the LD2000 system as well as plug-ins and add-ons

Since there were many new users at the Pangolin User Meeting, time was spent explaining the LD2000 system as a whole, including LD2000, Showtime, Autoplay, Live! and also the various plug-ins and add-on programs available such as Lasershow Converter MAX, Lasershow Converter FLASH and other new software. Note that Hugo organized the equipment at the meeting such that almost all attendees were provided a computer with which to follow along and try things out for themselves.

Watchout presentation

After a tasty lunch, Adela Kriland took time to demonstrate the Watchout video software made by Dataton. This software allows easy control over a number of video projectors which may be edge-blended to create seemless large-scale presentations. The Watchout software may be used along with Pangolin's Showtime to create fantastic laser-over-video presentations.

Pangolin Prize Competition

This year, we had 21 entries for the Pangolin Prize competition. This is on par with the number that we received over the past several years. All entries were EXCELLENT and almost all graphic entries were created with Lasershow Converter MAX or Lasershow Converter FLASH.

T-shirt give-away

Pangolin continued its tradition of providing free T-shirts to commemorate the meeting.


LivePRO training day

The second day was dedicated to LivePRO education. It was taught by Master Laserist Glenn Turner.

Note that Pangolin staff captured video from three different video cameras and will be creating a special LivePRO tutorial DVD from the session. Stay tuned for more information about this.
