"I have a real problem with domes protecting the lights in outdoor environments. SGM’s IP-rating and reliability in poor weather, makes them the ideal and first choice for me. For instance, with Robbie William’s tour last year, I used other fixtures as well, but it was only the SGM products that were bulletproof in the outdoor environments. That’s why I choose SGM’s P-10 and G-4 Wash-Beam for the Ed Sheeran tour - in the outdoor environments, they are absolutely bulletproof.
I love the size and shape of the G-4 Wash-Beam and I love the beam that comes out of it. Often, with moving heads, they are bulky and can become a feature in themselves. I love the light but I hate the lights. I want people to look at the actual lights, not the body of the unit. The G-4 Wash-Beam is not an obtrusive unit; it’s small, beautifully designed, IP-rated, and very powerful for its size. I am really pleased with this products.
I am using the P-10 extensively in a show in Cardiff for audience illumination. Although the IP-rating of this product isn’t as important as the G-4, as it is in a protected area, I love this fixture because its immense output and various beam angles provides superb audience shootage without using a ton of power. So the fact that they are LED units, very powerful, and IP-rated, makes them the first choice for me for this kind of application.
At the moment, I am very fund of the G-4 Wash-Beam, and it certainly works extremely well for Robbie [Williams], because he always has a catwalk and works the audience. I can the G-4 to light the catwalk, use it as a fresnel kicker, and as audience highlight. It is just an excellent fixture for this type of application.
The P-10 I am very fund of because it is just such a powerful unit, and I like to use it when I need supplement lighting for audience highlight for film shootings."
