Audience Scanning Laser Safety

Audience Scanning Laser Safety

Please SCROLL DOWN to review our measurement systems for verifying Audience Safety for Laser Scanning applications.

Ever since Justin Timberlake and Saturday Night Live rocked the entertainment world with the laser effect called “audience scanning”, use of this new technology has skyrocketed and so has the risk of eye damage to the audience.

ILT now offers laser light measurement tools that can rapidly measure and display the peak value of exposure for all colors of lasers without the need to change components or settings.

Audience scanning immerses the audience with light in many shapes and sizes (laser beams, cones, fans, waves, sheets, etc) so that the laser light is actually touching people. It is a truly immersive effect, that allows people to actually touch and interact with the light.

Laser lighting can be shined directly at the audience, reflect off natural and artificial structures in the environment, or focused on the stage and performer. Regardless of the directionality of the display, there is a risk for over exposure to the human eye.

The US have some of the most robust regulations pertaining to safety systems and requires that all users are fully trained and all systems are tested for safety. IEC 60825 sets the MPE (Maximum permissible exposure) at the cornea for a collimated laser beam.

The ILT1000 and ILT5000 Laser Safety Measurement Systems make safety measurements quickly and accurately. Results can be stored internally for later review or displayed an any Windows 7 or Window 8 PC or tablet, making the ILT systems an easy, portable, ISO17025 accredited / NIST traceable audience scanning safety verification device.

The ILT1000 and ILT5000 use removable filters and optics that also allow customers to the same sensor to test laser power.
