REALS by LPS is popular with companies, event agencies and light technicians who want actively shape memories with exceptional laser effects. The interactive laser experience REALS by LPS proved at prolight+sound 2015 as a real crowd-puller, in spite of the rather modest number of visitors.
„With the this year‘s trade fair prolight+sound we missed some more international visitors, like already in the past. The number of visitors was so-so” said Rudi Maikler, Sales Manager Europe at LPS-Lasersysteme. “Nevertheless, this fair is important for a manufacturer to present its interesting product innovations and on the other hand to get personal contact with customers and business partners, who do not come from Germany and Europe”.

Turkmenistan was a Republic of the Soviet Union, which is independent since 1991. The country bordered by Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Iran and the Caspian Sea. In addition, Turkmenistan is subdivided in five provinces: Lepap, Balkans, Dasoguz, Akhal and Mary. The land area is taken up to 95% of the Kara Kum desert, which consists of sand and scree. 46% of the population live in the cities and the oases in the foothills of the Kopet-Dag. The regions in the lower river reaches of Tedschen and Murgab, the valley of Amudarja as well as the Kara Kum Canal also have a high population density.
Ashgabat is the capital and the largest city of Turkmenistan. It was built in 1881 around a Russian military base, but almost complete destroyed on 5 October 1948 by a heavy earthquake. As a result, Ashgabat has no typical old town district, as we know from other older cities. When reconstruct the city in 1962 it was connect to the Kara Kum Canal. It is one of the longest canals in the world and rises 600 km from Amundarja river. Today, Ashgabat is an important industrial centre for mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, as well as the textile and food industry. Also in the field of culture and leisure, the city can offer a lot, such as e.g. the cultural centre, various universities, theatres, museums and a zoo.
The new theatre and concert hall, Centre de Théâtre et Concerts, has found its place in the city of Ashgabat, too. During the new construction and the associated investment in light and sound the focus was on quality „Made in Germany“, among other technical highlights especially for the laser show systems. Therefore, the operators opt for LPS-Lasersysteme. Two LPS-Bax 6000RGB laser show systems, each with 6 Watts RGB laser power, along with the famous laser show software LPS-RealTIME Pro, both made by LPS in Germany, were installed. Further ten special mirrors were attached, which have different properties. Called grid and line gratings; they are spectral effects that comes as a reflection or transmission. For the Centre de Théâtre et Concerts, reflection gratings were installed. These gratings split an incident laser beam into many individual beams. As the different wavelengths submit differently, a multicolored laser beam will be split in his individual primaries, the spectral effects. In the show biz, they talk about effect gratings. A line grating divides the laser beam into a laser line, the grid grating into a laser grid. The laser show system LPS-Bax is the bestseller of the German manufacturer LPS-Lasersysteme. It distinguishes itself through a high-tech 60 kpps graphics scanner, scanner safety, by LPS specially developed and produced laser modules as well as a timeless smart design. Because of thoughtful allocation of the impressive truss (trussing) in the upper stage, more modern entertainment technology such as headlamps, strobes and moving heads have been installed. Last but not least, the personnel of the new Centre de Théâtre et Concerts in Ashgabat get an intensive training with the focus on safe handling of show lasers and the application of the laser show software by an LPS employee.

The new plant is intended as the headquarters for all of Europe and should successfully open the door to the European market.
It was early October, as the takeover of the German branch was extensively celebrated in the Donauhalle, Ulm, Germany. There were some interesting acts in the evening program, which has offered great entertainment for all visitors of the celebration. In addition to talented artists, such as, for example, fire dancers and musical performances by three bands with different musical styles, the opening of the event itself was a real highlight at this evening.

Finally, the laser graphic show was projected with the show laser system LPS-Bax. This laser projector is equipped with high-quality 60 kpps scanners, thus precise laser graphics and eye-catching animations are reliable projectable. As this was not enough, further laser show productions were presented during the evening.
As standalone show elements of the entertaining evening program, different programmed beam shows with various music titles enchanted the guests with truly magical laser show spectacles filled with breathtaking laser animations.

With decades of experience and the concentrated knowledge of the users which is implemented in this multimedia laser show software, all types of laser shows can be programmed very user friendly.
For the beam shows three LPS BaX RGB show laser systems with a laser power by a total of about 55 W were used. However, to guarantee a professional laser show, further show equipment of high quality is required.
In addition, two wind fog combination of LPS-air series were used. Hereby, at the same time artificial fog is generated and distributed inside the location. THAT special laser effect is achieved only by evenly distributed fog, because through it the laser light is broken and thus more visible for human eye. Used as a very special effect, appropriate fog should not be missed at laser shows which are truly magical.
