Featured Summit speaker: Ivan Dryer

Inspired by a new multi-colored laser at Cal Tech, Ivan Dryer assembled a team of engineers and artists to design an advanced laser projector in order to produce live choreographed laser shows. He presented the idea to Griffith Observatory and the first Laserium show to the public premiered November 19, 1973. Laserium expanded to many locations in the United States and abroad and has been experienced by more than 20 million people. 

Laserium was important not just in terms of technology but because it introduced a new business model to planetariums - entertainment shows that extended the programming, expanded the audience and provided a new source of revenue. With planetariums now rapidly converting to digital dome video ("fulldome") systems, and science center operators likewise converting their film domes to digital cinema there is new potential for creativity and market expansion, and new interest in the pioneering example set by Ivan Dryer more than 35 years ago.
