When Photographer 3 was released, Physical Lights were not supported for LuxCore, this is why it's not visible in the video.

BlendLuxCore already has Physical Lights units, I added them for 2.3. Photographer users wanted to be able to switch between Cycles and LuxCore and keep the same lighting, so now Photographer Physical lights are available for LuxCore and work the same way as in Cycles. The only difference is that the BlendLuxCore light panel isn't hidden, you can just close it and only use the Physical Light panel (I leave it accessible because BlendLuxCore evolves so quickly that Photographer will probably not be able to keep up).

There are only a couple of caveats, but you will see warnings in the UI if settings are wrong: LuxCore image pipeline tonemapper needs to be set up properly and lights needs to be converted everytime you change engines.
