Unfair Advantage

Our Mercury laser systems are built with lighting designers in mind. These lasers operate just like the moving heads you are used to. No need to run a separate control software or hire someone just for the lasers. Mercury enables lighting designers to integrate lasers into their rigs and use them right away. 

Check out some of the features and capabilities and see how other lighting designers like you have gained an #UnfairAdvantage by using Mercury.
