Skywriter HPX M-2




The Skywriter HPX M-2 is the most affordable way to access X-Laser’s Mercury laser control system in a fixture that is truly road ready.

The Skywriter HPX M-2 is ideal for small and medium-sized productions where vibrant laser effects can stand out on their own or be used to complement other effect lighting. Lighting professionals can easily integrate the M-2 into their lighting rigs and control it in unison with the rest of their lighting, from just about any major console or lighting controller. The Skywriter HPX M-2 has 2W of full RGB laser power and can be used indoors or outdoors, in venues with audiences of up to 1,000 guests.

The Skywriter HPX M-2 is the lower-power, lower-cost sibling of our most popular projector, the Skywriter HPX M-5, and combined with our Mercury control system allows for large arrays of lasers with incredible capabilities, all controlled from a lighting console to create amazing cascading movement, dimmer and color chases.

As an added bonus, you'll get our Laser Operator Course for free with purchase; a $150 value!

Compliance note: All laser shows in the U.S. must have a remote interlock system (also called an E-Stop) accessible to the laser operator(s) at all times. For our Mobile Beat and Skywriter systems, the X-Laser EtherStop is the perfect solution.
