LDI 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada took place this year, as it does every year.  Lots of lights, lasers, video wall, consoles, and people!  Thanksgiving has come and gone, and we’re all doing the last month hop to finish up everything before Christmas break.  Well, I mean “break” as in the 25th and 26th probably, most of us will be working during that time anyway.

This was a bittersweet LDI for me.  Some drama, lots of friends, a little more drama, SO much light, more friends, and hopefully lots of great stuff on the horizon.  One thing I noticed this year was the massive amount of moving heads that break the mold of a “professional” moving head — lots of stuff with split heads, heads that rotate and tilt on their own, heads that have multiple light sources on them, all that kind of stuff.  It’s interesting to see how the industry innovates itself…  or rather how the industry *thinks* it’s going to innovate itself.

Lots of stuff to see, lots of booths to visit, and tons of beautiful photos!  Check them, out, I’ve tried to break them into company names.  None of this is in any particular order, and I didn’t have much time to roam so I didn’t see lots of stuff.  I never got to the EDM arena, for example, which looked pretty awesome!  I also never got to D3 to see BlackTrax’ progress, I’ve been really looking forward to that.

What I’ve learned over the years at trade shows is that you have to measure your experience by what you did see and who you did hug; if you spend your time counting the things you didn’t get to see and the people you missed, your experience will be less rich.

Here’s the list of companies I was able to shoot a few photos of, not in order:
