Laser in Vision

Recommended Posts



So glad that lasers are finally a part of vision. However tying it to Pangolin Beyond is a very limited choice. Maybe thats a US thing?

Are there any plans to include some more protocols? I use Touch Designer to generate Laser content and send it using AVB (Laseranimation Sollinger) or interfaces like Etherdream or Helios. At the very least some DMX controlled lasers would be great to have.


I am certainly very interested to hear what the plan is moving forward.


Thank you

For now we have only implemented receiving data via the Pangolin protocol. We will consider other implementing other protocols in the future depending on requests from users what information is available from the manufactures about the protocol. Pangolin worked very closely with Vectorowrks in order to allow Vision to properly read and render the data that was being sent.


Lasers are being added to the GDTF specification so once that happens DMX  controlled lasers will be more feasible within the limitations of the DMX protocol.
