Product Description

Network interface for laser control, including full Showeditor professional laser show control software license.
Powerful laser control board with Digital-analog-converter (DAC), DMX / ArtNET, stand-alone and ILDA Streaming feature!

The ShowNET LAN interface can be used in different ways and combinations:

  • as interface to Showeditor laser show control software (download here for free:
  • as automated playback system for laser shows
  • as  DMX triggered playback system for laser shows
  • for ILDA Streaming: as ILDA IN - to - LAN - to - ILDA OUT adapter (ILDA range extender, ILDA over LAN, ILDA over Network)
  • as DMX IN - to - LAN - to DMX OUT adapter


As LAN interface to Laserworld Showeditor

The ShowNET interface is fully compatible to the professional Showeditor laser show control software. The Software can be downloaded for free on the Showeditor website:

Showeditor is an all-in-one laser show control software which comes with many easy-to-use features for beginners as well as for professionals.
It features intuitive creation of timeline based laser shows and ready-to-go live laser shows with simple operation and commands. The software includes more than 250 free laser shows and pre-configured MIDI profiles for immediate start.
ILDA (*.ild) files can be exported and imported, allowing an uncomplicated exchange between different software products.
Showeditor also supports DMX input and output: It can be remote controlled through a DMX controller and it can control lighting fixtures of any kind. 
Enhanced MIDI features grant the creation of own profiles.
Thanks to the Figure Editor even laser show beginners succeed in creating own figures, logos and running or morphing texts. Professional users benefit from advanced features, like the abstracts generator, color adaption and versatile optimization tools.
The software user interface is available in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Romanian.

As automated playback system for laser shows

Especially fixed laser show installations often require an automated playback system. In many cases there is no possibility to install a computer control system. The Laserworld ShowNET interfaces come standard with a microSD card and the interfaces can read standard ILDA files (*.ild) - which can be exported from Laserworld Showeditor or any other laser software that supports ILDA file export. 
When having saved the desired files to the microSD card, a simple dip switch setting sets the interface to auto play mode - and automatically starts with playing back the show files saved on the microSD card. There are also many preset figures already saved to the internal memory of the ShowNET interface, so these can be used for auto play as well.

As  DMX triggered playback system for laser shows

As described above, the ShowNET can play back standard ILDA files from a microSD card. This playback feature does not only work in automatic mode, but also allows for individual DMX triggering of the very patterns. Further modifications to the figure, like e.g. intensity, base color, size, offset etc. can be controlled through standard DMX512 protocol, without having to save a specifically modified figure.
This DMX controlled laser playback system feature makes the ShowNET even suitable for larger scale live laser show productions, where the preset figures are often just triggered through a big, high professional lighting controller. 

For ILDA Streaming: As ILDA IN - to - LAN - to - ILDA OUT adapter (ILDA range extender, ILDA over LAN, ILDA over Network) - two interfaces required per signal line

People that still use an older type USB DAC interface often face the problem of having to run long ILDA cables. However, the possible overall length of ILDA cables is limited due to the way the signal is transmitted. So some people use USB - to - LAN extenders to transmit the USB signal over longer distances. However, these solutions do not always work reliable - and especially if it comes to laser, it is important to not receive any irritating signals on the control line.
The Laserworld ShowNET interface is able to extend the ILDA signal from the ILDA output of any other ILDA outputting interface, e.g. a Pangolin Flashback 3 (FB3), over any distance, by transforming it to a digital TCP/IP network signal. That way it is possible to use standard network switches and standard CAT cables for signal distribution. Even fiber cable transmission is possbile.
It is possible to use up to 16 interfaces for inputting the ILDA signal to the network and up to 16 interfaces for outputting it again. Each input interface gets an individual address (can be set with dip switches) and the receiving interface is set to the corresponding receiver address (see manual for details). Then all input interfaces can be connected to a network switch, all ouptput interfaces are connected to another network switch and those two switches are connected by one (!) network cable only. Of course, if only one signal line shall be extended, there is no need for any switches -  a direct LAN cable is sufficient.

Hardware features of ShowNET:

X/Y scanner outputs with 12 bit resolution (4096 different positions on each axis)
Color outputs with 8 bit resolution (256 different intensity values per color channel): red, green, blue, intensity linked to green
DMX512 input and output (non-isolated)
100 Mbit Ethernet port
Flexible IP address setting: static address, DHCP or AutoIP
Internal MicroSD card for ILDA file playback (ILDA format code 4/5 RGB), can be accessed via LAN
standalone operation and DMX IN/OUT via DMX-Adapter
Maximum scan speed ~100.000 points per second
Up to 16 devices can be used in parallel for multiprojector laser shows
Built-in ArtNet-to-DMX converter

It would have worked well with the laser I got but it did not work with Apple so had to return it, just make sure you have the right hardware to run it

Great Addition to Open Up Your Laser To A Whole New Level
The laserworld showeditor dongle interface went faulty, so i had to return this back to I was kept informed during this process, and they had to return the Unit back to Laserworld for them to carry out some testing. In just over 3 weeks, provided me with a brand new replacement Laserworld ShowEditor and my laser is now back to its best. I would like to say a big thank you to for their support :)

Poor connectivity are great! But .... These days a device that connects to the network ought to do so simply and easily. Plug in and off you go. This is temperamental. I still cannot get it to function with my desktop. It just cannot see the device through the switch, firewall or no firewall. Then the adapter wire for DMX is not included. Come on laser world 60 for a wire that does not even sit in the socket well. This is for use on pro setups so where is the robust 3 or 5 pin built in Neutrik? Not really a "Swiss" standard product in the aboveaspects. Apart from that which is inexcusable I suppose it works !! Try to log in to their forum - no chance so there is no aftersales help at all. Where is the 2018 version that simply plugs and plays has the neutrik 3 or 5 pin and a proper program to find it on the PC or perhaps USB thunderbolt??
