Lasershow Player with included IR remote - click for enlarged view
Just insert a CD-R disc into the drive, and press the Play button. Lasershow Player has the same high quality playback as LD2000, and it is easier for DJs, show operators and others to use.



The Pangolin Lasershow Player model CD2000 gives you the exceptional laser quality of Lasershow Designer 2000, including fast scanning (up to 130,000 pts/sec output), six color channels, and DMX512 lighting control. Plus, you get full CD-quality stereo audio.

Lasershow Player unique features

There is no other laser playback device that gives you so many features for so little money.
        Unlike ADAT tape players, which only record laser and color signals up to about 40,000 pts/sec (40K), and only provide three color channels, Lasershow Player provides maximum frequency response, six color channels, DMX, and stereo CD-quality sound. Lasershow Player also allows you to store multiple shows on a CD, each of which can be accessed almost instantly with the front panel controls or with the included infrared remote control.
        Since the Lasershow Player uses LD2000's Projection Zone technology, this provides support for 30 different geometric correction settings that are instantly accessible within each show.

New features as of February 2005

The latest version of the Lasershow Player firmware allow you to have up to 99 shows on each CD. Each show can have its own Frame File (.LDS), its own Palette file (.SP1) and its own Zone file (.LDZ), or all shows can share the default Frame file, Palette file and Zone file.
        The latest version of the firmware also supports a real time clock and the ability to automatically load and play shows starting and ending at times that you set with the menus. Alternatively, you can have Lasershow Player automatically load and play the shows when power is applied. These "Play on timer" and "Play on boot" modes can be used for unattended playback applications.
        And the latest version of the firmware allows for full adjustment of scanning speeds, color shift, looping modes, and geometric correction settings for 5 zones. A total of 30 zones, as well as frame- and show-level security are all possible thanks to full compatibility with LD2OOO version 3.52.
        Support for SMPTE is now possible using the Aquila or Pangolin's TC2000 Time Code Controller.

Security: You hold the keys

Lasershow Player fully supports the security features provided by LD2000. This allows your shows to be encoded so that they will only play on specified players. If security is enabled and your CD is put into an unauthorized Lasershow Player, or into an unauthorized PC, the frame file will not load and the show will not play.

Creating shows for Lasershow Player

To use Lasershow Player, shows are first developed with any LD2000 system (Pro, Basic or Intro).
        Next, the frame and show files (.LDS and .SHS files) and the music track(s), are burned onto a CD-R. Any standard CD-R burner can be used -- the burning computer does not have to have an LD2000 system, or a QM2000 board.
        Finally, the resulting CD-R is put into the Lasershow Player's CD drive. The Lasershow Player will automatically load the frame and show files so that when the "Play" button is pressed, the show immediately starts. 

Front panel controls

The Lasershow Player front panel is shown above. The buttons are normally used for standard CD functions such as PLAY, STOP, EJECT, etc.. By pressing the "MODE" button, the buttons are used for adjusting various output parameters, such as size, offset, geometric correction and scan speed. Other parameters let you loop songs or complete shows.

Suggested uses

Lasershow Player is so unique, people are opening new markets with it. It is ideal for any application with unsophisticated users. If they can put in a CD disc, they can play a laser show. It also is ideal for repeated plays since, unlike ADAT tapes, the medium doesn't wear out or require rewinding.
        Such applications include:

  • Trade shows -- play a laser show over and over, all day long.

  • Point-of-purchase displays -- present the highest quality lasers and music.

  • Billboards -- when clients change, pop in a new CD.

  • Corporate and entertainment laser shows -- create at your office on a computer; play back at the site using Lasershow Player.

  • Planetariums -- provides a simple and reliable CD player interface.

Not recommended for new installations

Note that as of June, 2007, Pangolin only has a few units left in stock. For that reason, the CD2000 is not recommended for new installations. Instead, users should consider the Flashback 3 Laser Controller or QM2000.NET for new installations.
