            High Quality Laser Shows & Products

            Since 1978, AVI has been the leader in creating educational and entertaining laser light shows for planetarium theaters worldwide. AVI has pioneered some of the most innovative, artistic and technical techniques for the domed theater industry. AVI was the first laser company to use sequential animation in planetarium laser shows. AVI introduced the world to 3-D laser shows for planetariums. AVI also developed and patented SkyLase, full-dome (360 x 180 degree) full color laser projection technology star projector. Expanding on their patented technology, AVI developed LaserGlobe for presenting laser shows filling an entire spherical surface and Discoscan for exciting 360 degree mid-air laser beam effects. AVI offers custom laser show production. Some of AVI’s clients include Planetariums and Science Centers throughout the world, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, The United States Presidential Committee, a variety of major corporations and many more.

            Full-Dome Video Production

            AVI produced the first full-dome 2D animated production, Legends of the Night Sky: Orion. This very popular constellation story was followed by Legends of the Night Sky: Perseus and Andromeda. AVI’s makeover of the popular planetarium show, The Little Star That Could, ushered it into the digital full dome era. AVI’s most recent achievements are the first full-dome modular programs, The Moon and The Weather, designed for live interaction.

            “I appreciate that the SkyLase system offers a third technology option for entertainment and education in our planetarium. We offer Laser Light Nights featuring AVI laser shows about once a month, usually to sold out crowds! Families love the "Legends of the Night Sky” children’s shows, which are on regular rotation in our public schedule. The AVI staff is always prompt to respond to questions, and offers a high level of customer service.”

            We have been very pleased working with AVI for our laser projector needs. Their rental program allows us to offer state-of-the-art laser shows where purchasing one is not an option. AVI will work with you on you to ensure your dome is capable of presenting these out-of-this-world laser shows.

            We are incredibly pleased with the SkyLase system and AVI! SkyLase is easy to install and even easier to use! Working in a zoo, I am much more familiar with animals than audiovisual equipment, but with the incredible technical support from AVI, we were able to set the system up ourselves in a very short time! The customer service is fantastic, too! We always receive prompt friendly responses to our questions. Special show edits were no problem either. And, by the way, the colors of the LASER are phenomenal!
            “We have rented from other laser companies in the past and have run into so many technical difficulties… it is usually a headache and I was a bit apprehensive to have lasers again this year. But your equipment was such a breeze, I truly appreciate it!”

            “We would like to sincerely thank you for the wonderful experience that AVI laser shows provided for us and our visitors here at UW-Stevens Point. We are looking forward to our next laser system rental from AVI, and maybe we should explore the option of purchasing a system.”
