X-Laser Updates Mercury System

With beta testing complete, X-Laser Mercury now includes firmware updates and fixture profiles supporting major lighting control platforms.

Now featuring Avolites, ChamSys, MA Lighting grandMA, Martin by Harman (M-Series and LightJockey), Jands Vista, Elation Professional, and more. X-Laser’s Mercury laser control interface is also now available in X-Laser’s 5W, 10W, 20W, 30W and 50W Skywriter fixtures.

“We’ve gotten feedback from several professional lighting and laser designers, regarding Mercury and how we can make it the most useful to the most people in the live design world,” Adam Raugh, president of X-Laser USA, said. “With that feedback, we have created several training videos, new console profiles and plenty of visual material to show designers new and exciting ways to integrate laser more deeply into their shows.”

Professional lighting designer Daniel Maxwell, of True Grip Lighting in Knoxville, Tennessee, commented: “The Mercury laser control system is ideal for pro lighting designers because we can basically just plug and play the laser into our console workflow and program it just like a regular beam or wash fixture. It’s an exciting step in the lighting world because it makes laser so much easier to integrate, smoothly and rapidly.”

X-Laser has published new videos showcasing the effects suite of Mercury laser control, as well as its programming workflow.
