LOBO sweeps laser display “Oscars”

10 Dec 2003

German firm celebrates its success at this year’s laser display award ceremony.

A German firm has scooped almost one third of the awards on offer at this year’s International Laser Display Association (ILDA) conference in Brussels.

LOBO Electronic, an Aalen-based firm that specializes in creating stunning light shows, has been awarded 12 of the 40 prizes on offer, including four first prizes.

LOBO won first prizes under the categories of indoor show, beam module, graphics, and animation for its entries “Mystère”, “Neo”, “Dirty Mary” and “Dino”.

It also received recognition for an outdoor show that it performed in Budapest in August 2002 to celebrate a national holiday in Hungary.

LOBO says that besides its creativity and experience, the development of its LACON-5 laser multimedia workstation has been critical to its success.

The unit, which was launched on the market about 18 months ago, can control up to 16 independent laser projectors and makes it possible to display high-resolution MPEG videos and animation.

Every year at its annual conference the ILDA gives “Oscars” to what it judges to be the best laser light shows that have amazed audiences around the world. The 2003 award ceremony took place in Brussels Plaza Theatre at the end of November.
