For years, we have dreamed of creating a laser technology that would legally, safely, reliably and simply allow lighting designers and producers to put audiences inside laser effects, to create truly immersive environments. Polaris brings that dream to life by putting the simplest and most affordable FDA-compliant audience immersion system in the world into X-Laserʼs industry-leading Defiant projector series. Combining X-Laserʼs revolutionary compliance procedures with patented safety technology, Polaris can be scaled to nearly any size venue – quickly and easily. It’s the best thing to happen to laser since X-Laser, and at its revolutionary price, Polaris makes everything possible. See why and experience the true power of Polaris.

100% legal & eye-safe

Combined with proper setup, X-Laser’s Polaris technology offers one of the safest, most immersive laser experiences on the market.  More than that, throughout the life of your laser, we here at X-Laser are committed to helping you ensure that Polaris systems, along with all high-powered lasers, can be used safely thanks to great operator training and compliance assistance.


Feel the power

Polaris technology puts your audience right in the thick of your own spectacular laser designs, which feature power levels many times higher than standard laser projectors can safely deliver.  Unleashing your laser from special effect restrictions, Polaris launches a completely new platform in lighting design.

Imagine endless possibilities

With Polaris technology, countless never-before-seen effects are within your grasp.  Can you imagine, for example, a Star Wars ride where the fighters fire their lasers past you? We can –  and it’s only one of the infinite possibilities that Polaris technology allows.


  • Polaris is not itself a laser but a fully integrated audience immersion safety system that combines world-class hardware, software tools and a simplified setup procedure that can be added to all Defiant laser platforms.
  • Please note that Polaris cannot be added to X-Beam, Skywriter, Mobile Beat, Caliente or Aurora laser systems or retrofitted into existing laser projectors at this time. All Defiant lasers can be fitted with the Polaris hardware.
  • Polaris-enabled projectors include not only pre-calibrated hardware and outstanding user training, but also a complimentary ticket to attend a workshop at X-Laser’s Maryland office to learn how to customize the system for any particular need. X-Laser will also work with you to amend your “audience scanning” FDA variance, which is required before using the audience immersion system. The projector itself can be used immediately if the purchaser already holds a variance, and can be used for audience immersion once the FDA approves the “audience scanning” amendment.
  • Each Polaris system will be cleaned and re-calibrated at no extra cost each year for the life of the unit. (Shipping not included.)
  • Guaranteed to comply with FDA regulations for audience immersion systems.
  • Polaris-enabled systems are much too powerful for casual use and are intended for professional lighting users, venues and show production companies only.
