SGM Launches the Unique IP-65 LED Profile Spot Offering “All-Weather” Benefits
Posted on Wednesday, February 27th, 2013
Said SGM CEO , “We had planned to keep the unique features of this world-beating profile spot firmly under wraps until Frankfurt — but word got out and it quickly went viral. Of all the years I have been in the industry since setting up Martin Professional, I have never been associated with a product that has caused such a buzz of anticipation.”
The reason is simple. Ever since the evolution of LED technology enabled a genuine color mixing moving head spot to be produced, according to the company, the market has been screaming for an all-weather IP-65 rated version.
SGM’s R&D team — boasting more than 100 years of accumulated moving head design experience — rationalized that moving heads are becoming increasingly exposed to wet and humid conditions. The company says this compromises the cooling effect, luminous intensity, and projection quality, while the dirt and dust that accumulate inside quickly deteriorate gobos and lenses. So, they set about designing a solution.
States Johansen, “Because our sealed unit is sand-, dirt-, water-, and dust-free, it is also maintenance free. And since it is based on our revolutionary P-5 technology, which includes the highest luminous output of an IP rated fixture, it is also the brightest.”
“We have overcome all the challenges thrown at us with the G-Spot. Aside from being the world’s first and only multi-environmental LED moving head it is also the brightest. With its unparalleled efficacy rating it unquestionably delivers the best ROI and lowest cost of ownership anywhere in the industry.”
At the heart of the system is an 850W RGB LED module the company notes, which when run through SGM’s optical system, generates a light beam comparable to the brightest discharge lamps, while carrying all the advantages offered by LED. These include SGM’s white balance automatic system.
At the same time the G-Spot contains all the features with attributes such as: wide-angle ultra-fast linear 16bit zoom 1:5 (9- to 45-degrees); dynamic CT correction (2,500K to 10,000K); linear CTO (color temperature orange); linear CTB (color temperature blue); ultra smooth color mixing, plus fast color-snaps or completely seamless fades; two independent rotating gobo wheels and two independent effect wheels: RFID interface; fast and accurate iris with built-in dynamic effects; high-speed and precise focus control for crisp beam quality or soft de-focused effects; four-facet rotating prism for crisp clear beam separation; soft, high-quality frost filter; ultra-high-speed strobe, with possibility to strobe between two or more colors at any speed; precision, fast, 16 bit 540-degree pan control and 270-degree tilt (with feedback).
The G-spot will be formally launched to the trade at SGM’s booth on April 10, at Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt, in hall 9.0, stand C80.
