It was the most spectacular use of the new "sparks" laser technology, so far: The 30 minutes New Year Show, directed by Jerry Appelt, in front of the second-largest building of the world. Approx. 100 meters above the stage, a sparks system projected the countdown into the new year onto the facade of the 275 wide Palace of Parliament and created mirror effects during the subsequent show, while five additional projectors have been installed to create atmospheric beam effects right in front of the spectators. Thanks to the extraordinary beam quality and the power of 17 Watts per sparks system, the laser effects could be recognized very well in spite of the extremely bright background created by the fireworks and more than 60 Space Cannons.
