What We Are Up To

1/12/98  Happy New Year.  A lot of programming on BeamWizard to add LD show playing with some very useful options such as time-bending where you can slow or speedup a show in realtime.  This is ideal for laserists performing show scenes that must synchronize to uncertain human actions.  Also, have gotten in hot and heavy with virtual show memory allowing many shows and scenes to be resident in memory greatly reducing latency when you make your show key selection. 

4/98 We have been on a buying spree and have added to our laser rental fleet.  We now have a 28W large frame Coherent Innova to add to our large frame Spectra 171's.  We also built a 171 whitelight with 12 watts which is available for rental. Also purchased were some excellent Coherent 699 Ring Dye lasers which will soon have a few pages of their own.  These are systems many a Chemistry Dept. would love to provide a home for.

3/00  We are pleased to do a month long show for the Dubai Shopping Festival on the Creek.  In conjunction with this, Holo-Spectra now has representation for the MiddleEast through the Helix UAE office.  We specialize in the support and creation of laser displayed Arabic text.

10/00  Bill is busy in Asia with new installations in Vietnam, Singapore, and China.  Our club installation at Club Monaco in HoChiMinh City is one of the best 4 watt whitelight installs in all of SEAsia.

4/01  Here are two recent press releases.  It was a lot of hard work for Bob, Bill, Richard, and Buck, but the excellent GreenHornet projector is now born.
