Albert Einstein laid the physical foundations for lasers already in 1916. More than 40 years later (1960), Theodore Maiman built the first ruby laser. After a further decade, laser show systems were used as special highlights in the show business. At this time water-cooled gas lasers were used. Thus, for laser shows many meters of cable, hoses and unwieldy power lines had to be installed temporarily and it took great pains to realize a professional laser show. In those days a laser show system with transformer and accessories had more than 400 kg weight at a laser power of 5W white light.
Technological developments till today make that there are almost limitless possibilities with lasers. Today’s professional laser show systems are lightweights, they are more compact and have a much stronger laser power. They can be integrated into each stage scenery. Laser show systems are long ago an integral part at festivals, concerts, galas, discotheques, TV shows and many other profitable events.
Special software development allows the programmer to create laser shows in a very short time with features and control options. One of the developers and manufacturers of laser show software is Pangolin. The latest software feature is called FB4 Interface, which was presented for the first time at the prolight+sound 2015 trade fair in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The FB4 MAX includes all features of this series: the FB4 mainboard, OLED display, network connection, SD card slot, DMX and ILDA.
LPS-Lasersysteme is worldwide known as a leading manufacturer and supplier of professional laser show systems, laser shows, laser show software and important part of multimedia shows. Among other things the company completed their own laser show software portfolio with the full FB4 series. Now the bestseller by LPS, the LPS-Bax series, is available with integrated FB4 MAX. On customer request, this interface is also available externally in a handy housing or as an insert for an 19” rack.
In addition to the entire product group of Pangolin and the own software LPS-RealTIME Pro, which is very popular with professional users, LPS offers yet another new innovation, which is integrated directly into the LPS-RealTIME Pro: RealVIEW. This module enables realistic simulations of laser shows – almost as if you are already on site. With just a few clicks, the programmer can read images of the future location and position the number of laser show systems. The laser show output is made via these systems. In particular programming and adjustment of multi projector shows as well as combination of the laser graphics with beam shows are facilitated.
The combination with all the new features and the high-end laser technology of the LPS-Bax, LPS offers a wide selection, that pretty much let every customer wish comes true.

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.

Well established, it cultivates today strong business relations with numerous, well-known pharmaceutical companies worldwide. Also in Baden-Wuerttemberg there is a company lcation that is operating with a different company name now. This factory takeover is regarded not only as another production plant which is located in the southwest of Germany, but also as the first pillar of the Russian company in Europe. 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. A specially programmed graphic laser show opened the ceremony.
This varied and entertaining presentation, decorated with elements such as the company logo, which dynamically rotated around the globe, as well as more graphical and textual representations, were designed specially for the company and the occasion of the event. Already in advance, the team of programmers and designers from LPS-Lasersysteme in Ofterdingen, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany proved lots of experience, creativity and musical sensibility to realize the demands and implement the wishes of the client. 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. All laser productions were programmed with the LPS-RealTIME Pro laser show software, which is developed by LPS and well-known with professional users.
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.

Characterized by the philosophy of strong customer care, continuous innovations and the global mind, the company LPS-Lasersysteme from Germany is one of the worldwide leading manufacturer of laser show systems and supplier of laser shows and multimedia events. Nevertheless, what makes the company located in South-West Germany so special, that it is more than 20 years successful?
LPS-Lasersysteme enjoys a great reputation already almost everywhere on the globe – whether in South America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, South East Asia or on the doorstep in Europe – the name LPS stands for high quality, reliability and costumer care!
In 1993, on March 1st, the present managing director Siegmund Ruff founded the company LPS-Lasersysteme and initially led a one-man business.
One year later, he hired the first employee. In 1996 the present Marketing Director Martina Ruff strengthen the team and started first export business with the Switzerland, France, Czech Republic, Austria and Greece.
„At that time, we only dreamed about of being known around the world. When I discussed this as my personal goal with Siggi, he smiled at me” Martina Ruff says.
The first sale to Asia in 1998 was the first step towards global trade. The following year went along with sales up to South America. In addition, a global dealer network was established, which is still increasing.
Nowadays, the managing director can proudly look back to the past 20 years, as the result of the close cooperation with his global business partners is impressive.
LPS-Lasersysteme represents itself around the world with more than seven dozen dealers, freelancers and representatives.
„Due to excellent cooperation with my business partners and business friends, we always know what the trade is demanding. So we can foresee and assess in time, in which direction the needs of our customers are moving. This information is for a company producing in Germany as important as never before, considering the flood of cheap products from Asia” Siggi Ruff says.
But not enough, LPS expanded its portfolio a long time ago.
„In addition to our own laser show systems, we offered previously only pure laser shows.
We still do that and more than ever before. But we complement our offer with very great and close cooperation” mentioned Siggi Ruff and means among other things the combination of laser show and laser harp, played by an artist, not comparable.
With brilliant colourful laser beams and mystical sounds from the awesome laser harp the guest dreams away into another audio-visual dimension.
Several successful performances are already realized together, like for example outdoor in an idyllic castle courtyard or for special occasions as once in the Europapark Rust, Tuningworld Friedrichshafen, Old Airport Tempelhof in Berlin, and much more.
„2012 we presented REALS by LPS on the international exhibition prolight+sound in Frankfurt am Main in Germany. Since then, of course we developed more and more this interactive laser show and thus it grows up immeasurably. Reals by LPS is a high creative combination of laser and video live tracking as well as a multimedia performance. It allows companies and all others who use this medium as a real eye catcher, to attract attention very special and particularly interactively” says Martina Ruff.
„It is hard to believe, how many possibilities are given with that to the whole advertising industry. So, who wants to stand out from the crowd, should come to us and watch it. “
But when it is about show, stage production and trade fair appearance, LPS offers, besides multimedia show elements, another highlight – the original laser robot Flagrob.
The robot with six limbs, which is specifically intended for the industry, is known for its flexible limbs and a crazy laser spectacular.
„Of course such a robot isn´t build up quickly and it needs space – BUT in each time it is a magnet for the audience when it is equipped with our laser systems and it makes laser shows and laser graphics more mobile” explained Siggi Ruff.
And precisely this aspect is so appreciated by many of their numerous customers.
With LPS-Lasersysteme there is no „too large effort“, or „that is too complicated” or „that is not possible“. „Each unforgettable laser show thrives on visions and dreams, also those of our customers.
To make them tangible, to implement them, that is our job.
And with our great team and our experience, we make that quite well, I suppose” adds Martina Ruff.
With a growing order book situation, LPS needed more space to meet the new production requirements. That is why the owner of the company and his team moved to larger premises in 2002. On more than 2000 m² property are the production hall, warehouse, management and of course the show room.
„Enough space and expansion possibilities for many new and fresh ideas” says Martina Ruff.
LPS invites customers and prospects to look around the 250-sqm showroom and to get an insight into laser technology. „We are a company of the people,” says Siggi Ruff.
„With us, clients should see LPS’ show lasers extensively and get extensive ideas for the laser show. We always advise in that way, as if it is our own project or our own event. It is not always about laser shows, but also multimedia elements, like you can see in our image trailer on our website LPS laser show, laser shows, show laser systems and laser systems”.
The guiding principle of the LPS-Team is to exceed the clients’ needs.

Thus, LPS often has a very important role in great events.
„We love what we do. I am working for LPS since 1995, but it is wonderful if it gives me the creeps repeatedly, as recently at the international Fireworks Festival 2012 in the Swabian Ostfildern, more than 55,000 visitors have been there. The combination of fireworks and laser show was incredible” enthuses Martina Ruff.
In addition, the list of permanent installations is impressive long.
There are many entertainment centres from the well-known A-chain and the Musikparks beside several others, even so bowling centres, casinos and leisure parks, as well as international multimedia laser show installations of projects with water fountains.
„Wow, 20 years! It is such an incredibly long time which has passed by so quickly. And not to forget, what has happened all over this period in laser technology. From the former water-cooled systems to the nowadays very small and unbelievable high-powered air-cooled laser show systems“. Siggi Ruff who knows all facets of the laser industry, adds casually „I think, we have inspired a lot of people with laser shows. We will do that also in the future, because that is what we can.”
Always the latest technology, always setting high standards – that testifies that in 2003 LPS was the top seller of Coherent lasers without missing the trend to the handy air-cooled lasers.
To the numerous innovations of the global company belong the development of high power laser systems with more than 50 W as well as the presentation of the LC7 laser controller in 2009.

„As a global supplier of laser shows, we know the equipment is as important. Therefore, we offer our LPS-made wind machine series LPS-Air and our Helix fog liquid, which is available in three intensities and on request with different flavours” explains Martina Ruff, „furthermore, we also offer PVC and gauze screens, water screens and hydro shields.”
