"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."

"We chose SGM products because of their reliability in terms of their IP-rating, and simply because they can do the job. In terms of the design, they are also beautiful fixtures, which allows me to place them in areas within eyesight of the audience, without disturbing what I am illuminating," said Holst and continued. "I always include SGM's Q-7, regardless of the task I have on hand, because it has a great wide beam angle and provides an even coverage. I do the lighting for many concerts, creating rock & roll lighting for artists, and the Q-7 is always there."
