WBS Laser Video Project 0.8 Class II
Demonstrate TV picture and sound transmitted over a laser beam

The WBS Laser Video Project is a dynamic educational laser project that will sharpen any student's interest in laser and communication technology. With this project you can demonstrate to students versatility of laser/optical technology by the simultaneous transmission of color video picture and sound over a single optical beam.

Project contains laser, optical receiver, power adapters, two Type-F connector coaxial cables and instruction guide.

The laser contained in this project is as versatile a product as can be found for the educational market. With a very wide electrical modulation capability and multiple input jacks, this laser can be used for multiple optical communication demonstrations such as: voice communication; AM/FM radio transmission; video from camcorder; RF video from VCR; and digital line-of-sight computer links

  • Convergence and divergence of lenses
  • Polarization of light
  • Measurement of Brewster's angle
  • Perimeter security using laser beams

Laser features include:

  • Semiconductor lasing element and all solid-state electronic design for a long dependable life
  • Bright 635 nanometer wavelength laser beam
  • Standard electrical input jacks
  • Electrical overdrive protection on all inputs
  • Linear polarized light beam
  • Tamper-resistant screws for safety
  • 4-year limited warranty


All manufacturers of lasers used in the United States, must conform to regulations administered by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. CDRH categorizes lasers as follows:

 Class 1

A laser or laser system which does not present a hazard to skin or eyes for any wavelength or exposure time. Exposure varies with wavelength. For ultraviolet, .2 to .4m exposure is less than from .8 or near IR, the exposure is < 200w. Consult CDRH regulations for specific information.

 Class 2

Any visible laser with an output less than 1 mW of power. Warning label requirements yellow caution label stating maximum output of 1 mW. Generally used as classroom lab lasers, supermarket scanners and laser pointers.

 Class 3a

Any visible laser with an output over 1 mW of power with a maximum output of 5 mW of power. Warning label requirements red danger label stating maximum output of 5 mW. Also used as classroom lab lasers, in holography, laser pointers, leveling instruments, measuring devices and alignment equipment.

 Class 3b

Any laser with an output over 5 mW of power with a maximum output of 500 mW of power and all invisible lasers with an output up to 400 mW. Warning label requirements red danger label stating maximum output. These lasers also require a key switch for operation and a 3.5-second delay when the laser is turned on. Used in many of the same applications as the Class IIIa when more power is required.

 Class 4

Any laser with an output over 500 mW of power. Warning label requirements red danger label stating maximum output. These lasers are primarily used in industrial applications such as tooling, machining, cutting and welding. Most medical laser applications also require these high-powered lasers.
