The first Pangolin User Meeting for 2006 was held March 11, 2006, within the Pangolin booth at the SIB International trade show, Europe's largest Event and Entertainment Technology exhibit. (This was only the first Pangolin User Meeting for this year. Another meeting was held during 2006, in Amsterdam.)
        The general format of the meeting was as follows:

  • Introduction of Pangolin staff, and of individuals present

  • Discussion of the new features in Pangolin software, as well as new Frames and Shows that are part of the LD2000 version 4.0 release

  • T-shirt give-away

  • Laser presentation and discussion of laser shows from past Pangolin Prize competitions

  • Question and Answer session and "Wrap-up"

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. Meeting attendees also talked a little bit about themselves.

Demonstration of new features and software

During this portion of the meeting, the new features of the LD2000 system were demonstrated, including updates to Projection Zones, DMX Input for Live! and LivePRO, and added value to the LD2000 platform including more tracks and more laser shows with licensed music.
        In addition to the discussion of LD2000 features, several completely new products were shown including a re-brandable piece of software that can be used with the Flashback series of laser controllers.

Hardware presentation

During this portion of the meeting, a few new hardware products were shown which are now available from Pangolin. One of them is a USB 2.0 daughter board for the Flashback series of laser controllers.

T-shirt give-away

Pangolin continued its tradition of providing two different styles of T-shirts which attendees could choose from -- our traditional raster "LD Model" T-shirt, as well as our "Laser Show Staff" T-shirt which we had in a prior year.

Pangolin Laser Show Presentation

Because of the format and timing of this year's meeting, we did not have a Pangolin Prize competition. The next Pangolin Prize competition will be held in conjunction with the next Pangolin User Meeting, later in 2006. Instead, we viewed and discussed some of the laser shows from past Pangolin Prize competitions.
