The Light Vector Story

In 2009 John, Joe and Andy heard about a new solid-state diode-stacked full color laser that utilized 120v power and did not require water-cooling. Intrigued by the possibilities John and Joe traveled to Germany to see the equipment first hand and were so impressed that they purchased four on the spot. The units were great, but any time there was an issue they would need to be shipped to Germany for repair. It was then that John got an idea to try and build his own diode-stacked laser.

In 2010 John completed his first iteration, the 9030 a XXw laser that was used in Sioux Falls, SD. After the debut of the 9030 John continued to refine his design and the first production run of the Light Vector was released in June of 2011. For the first time a company based in the United States was designing and manufacturing a commercially available solid-state diode stacked full color laser. Since that day, the Light Vector laser has been on thousands of shows throughout the country.

In 2015 Image Engineering set out to build the second generation of the Light Vector Laser. Bringing together a team from across the company, Image set out to build a new laser that would redefine the norm, just like that original diode-stacked laser did in 2009. Having listened to stakeholders throughout the company, in spring of 2016 John and his team of engineers debuted the Light Vector Symphony a laser with its software and programming counterpart completed integrated from conception, simple streamlined efficiency.
