Thanks to an innovative technology (patented), the KB2D is the most versatile and compact interactive controller on the market, in particular for Laser Harp applications. It has been awarded the 3rd place at the "International Laser Display Association Awards" in 2020. The KB2D implements in particular a height detection, a very accurate angular detection, and an insensitivity to parasitic lights, wich allows it for being used in almost any condition. The applications for the KB2D are very diversified. Even if its primary application is the Laser Harp, the possibilities are very broad.
The KB2D Laser Harp controller is a detection system which works as a MIDI controller. Thanks to its unique technology (angular detection), it can interact with laser beams without needing any synchronization nor communication with the laser projector or its software. Thus it can be used with any laser projector with scanners. The KB2D can be placed at any position where it can detect the interaction.
Also, this exclusive property of the KB2D enables to interact with any laser pattern. It can be a classical beam fan, but also a line, or a circle for instance.
The KB2D Laser Hap controller was designed in particular to be used on stage, to fit with the needs of live shows, like laser harp shows. The unique algorithms implemented on the KB2D allows for being very resistant to parasitic lights, coming from other lighting systems present on live stages. Various parameters are available to filter these parasits susceptible to perturbate Laser Harps, this is why the KB2D is extremely reliable compared to classical Laser Harps, working with synchronization with the laser.
Also, these algorithms enables all the functionnalities that any artist is dreaming about on this kind of systme: no latency, pitch modulation with height, polyphonic detection, external footswitch, presets...
As well, since the KB2D does not communicate with the laser projector, it is possible to use any model of laser projector, depending on the power and on the need for the show. The Laser equipment - cumbersome and expensive - can thus be rented or installed separately from the KB2D, enabling to optimize the cost and setup time.
Thanks to the way the KB2D works, without communication or synchronization with the laser projector, the setup is easier. The KB2D Laser Harp controller can be plugged on a computer via USB. The controller is self-powered via USB and communicates with the MIDI standard via USB. Thus, it can be used and recognized by any Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).
The laser projector can be controlled separatly, using any method you want. It can be controlled from your software, from the same computer as the one with the laser harp interface, or an external control, via DMX or from another computer for instance. The control of the laser projector and the laser pattern projected is completely separated.
However, it is still possible de trigger laser presets that will be activated at the same time as the presets on the Laser harp, just by connecting a controller or a virtual MIDI port between both software.
Having an awesome laser harp controller is not enough. We propose you a full package to come with it, so you can have the best experience with your KB2D Laser Harp controller. A protective case, 45° reflective mirror, and all accessories you need. Also you will benefit from a full support, to accompany you on the realisation of your projects and needs with the KB2D.
By default, the KB2D use a clear PMMA window. If you want to use specific wavelengths, Lightdiction proposes dichroic windows than can be placed instead of the clear one, to limit even more parasitic lights that may come from other sources.
The dichroic filter replaces the clear window in PMMA. If this option is chosen, only the corresponding range of wavelengths will be detected by the KB2D.
