Thinking About Lasers as Lighting Fixtures

X-Laser helps welcome 2016, creates signage for Baltimore’s first ball drop

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.
