The crowd gathered in the streets to watch the glistening ball drop to welcome the new year. This was not Times Square, though — this was Baltimore. In the heart of the city between the Baltimore Ravens’ M&T Bank Stadium and Horseshoe Casino, X-Laser projectors generated vivid laser effects to help create the atmosphere for Baltimore’s first New Year’s Eve ball drop (click here for the video!).
X-Laser supplied the laser projectors and custom content to create a 20-by-40 foot outdoor digital laser sign visible throughout the city. The goal was to project laser images visible all the way from Interstates 95 and 395, with each highway more than a mile away from the venue. X-Laser achieved this goal by using one Skywriter HPX unit and one 6-watt Defiant unit.
The weekend before Christmas 2015, people were talking about a light show in the nation’s capital, and not just some strings of LED bulbs wrapped around a house or some trees.
Dash Berlin, one of EDM’s top DJs, put on a killer set at Echostage in Washington D.C., one of the east coast’s premier venues for electronic music. Flanking him were five of X-Laser’s custom-made 6W Defiant projectors that completely filled the huge, warehouse-sized concert hall with incredibly bright and colorful laser effects.

Playing a doubleheader weekend at the famous Echostage in Washington D.C., the king of EDM, Tiësto, graced the stage for another dazzling performance for thousands of fans. Our Defiant systems with Polaris audience scanning technology were alongside him providing stunning aerial effects and immersive crowd experiences while the man himself played the biggest anthems in EDM today! Here are a few choice shots from the night, and feel free to stop by Echostage’s Facebook page and check out the full gallery!
The creative design team at Northridge Church in Plymouth, MI reached out to X-Laser looking for a unique solution to re-create a massive crucifix light sculpture for their 2015 Easter service. The creative planning team had seen a massive cross created using intelligent lighting and wanted to find a unique way to re-create that with high powered lasers.
Justin Cox, Lighting Director at Northridge Church, goes onto say, “We wanted to figure out a way to do something similar, but more effectively, brighter, and make it our own. After almost 2 years of talking with X-Laser we nailed down using 4 Defiant 3W systems with Polaris audience scanning to create this custom effect for us and it worked just right. When the lasers powered on you could see the entire audience pull out their phones & cameras and begin recording, it was great! We plan to use these fixtures a lot more in the future for multiple shows and services, they create all the light we need for so many different applications.”
This effect was achieved using our Defiant 3W custom built systems, controlled by Pangolin’s Quickshow XL software, triggered by a Jans Vista lighting console and 2 large hazers. As you can see the effect is massive, with a size of 45′ tall x 30′ wide, creating a massive effect center stage.
