Description

The Q-8 combines the compact size and low power consumption of the Q-7 series, the ergonomy of the Q-10, and the powerful strobe / blinder of the G-7 BeaSt in 2 separated linear arrays. This high-TLCI DualSource luminaire features RGBW mixing, pixel-mapping control, 110º and 84° spread angles, and all the benefits of magnetic easy-fit filter frames. It is a waterproof studio light for close distances, a strobe effect for touring, and a direct view fixture in a lightweight and robust design: the definitive mid-size flood/blinder.

Photometrics
The SGM Q-8 is a DualSourceTM touring fixture that is made to the quality standards of a studio fixture. The evolution of the Q-7 brings to market a combined 57,000 lumens* strobe blinder, and a 53,000 lumens* studio-quality floodlight with TLCI 90+ (TruColor+TM).


High color rendering
With a calibrated CRI performance above 90, and a 95+ TLCI via RAW modes, the Q-8 is the first RGBW fixture to achieve this level of white reproduction and outstanding output when mixing 4 LEDs. Thanks to SGM's TruColor+TM technology, the Q-8 can deliver up to 48,000 lumens* at 5,600K with excellent color rendition (CRI 96). Being already a great floodlight for close distances and medium-throws, the Q-8 color specs open a wide range of applications in different segments.

* Preliminary data.

Double-tap strobe, segment controlled
The Q-8 implements two completely independent linear strobe blinders, based on G-7 BeaSt's LEDs. These powerful strobe blinders are located at the top and bottom of the floodlight section, keeping all the advantages of the Q series while delivering new effects and 8 controllable pixels. In adition, the Q-8 includes a dual color strobe feature for the RGBW panel, allowing to strobe in a color while using a different color in the background. Two different types of light source, double strobe effect, twice the fun.

2 color engines in the same luminaire
While keeping the characteristic SGM color mixing as the default configuration, the Q-8 brings added value with SGM's VersaPathTM : a designer selectable algorithm for advanced control over color transitions. With VersapathTM, operators can warm up or cool down their mixed RGB colors over the black body curve, deciding themselves which dominant prevails when moving from one color to another. When combined with CTC, Q-8 users can also emulate color filters over a specific native color temperature, or mimic the color path response of third-party RGB fixtures.


Full control via Studio Mode
The Q-8 includes the powerful SGM DMX Studio Mode, expanding its capabilities through a number of advanced features. Select up to 13 different dimming curves with standard and extended ranges, choose your preferred color mode (RGB CTC, RGBW CTC, RGB+W CTC, CMY, HSI, or XY), adjust fan speed to reduce noise, change the LED frequency range for any dimming value (3.1Khz to 30Khz), select up to 7 High-speed modes for demanding camera setups (up to 2000 fps), and increase or reduce the peaks of green in the white output via the Plus/Green mode. Learn more about the SGM Studio Mode by reviewing the DMX chart in the "Download" section.

Maximum reliability, all-weather design
With IP66 rating, a rock-solid head with integrated dehumidifier, and a sealed IP67 wet base, SGM turned the long-lasting tools from the Q family into a compact dual-purpose tank. This is the result of extensive research, in-house danish manufacturing, and ambitious product testing. The Q-8 users benefit from SGM's ThermalDriveTM control, patented DryTechTM system, and 12 years of experience in all-weather lighting technology. 

 

Included SGM technologies

Thermal
DriveTM
This thermal management techonology provides Advaced Temperature Control monitored via sensors and software, keeping optimal LED junction temperatures, and ensuring maximum reliability for long-term use. SGM's predictive color mixing algorithm compesates the decay levels of color-based LEDs for superior color rendering. Finally, the ThermalDriveTM system includes cutting-edge heat removal via passive thermal tecniques and active forced-air cooling (depending on the product), specifically designed to maintain LED efficiency while extending fixture's lifetime.

TruColor+TM
TruColor+TM technology is specifically designed to achieve high CRI and high TLCI performance with RGBW-based fixtures. SGM uses Full Range Calibration in all LED fixtures over CIE space and black body curve, measured via spectrometer and SGM Illumination Lab software. The consistency of each product and its lifetime expectancy is monitored throught inbuilt sensors to compensate color shifting and to allow color temperature re-calibration. To provide the best user experience, SGM's Color Match procedure ensures accurate wavelength reproduction within the product range via colored LEDs, dichroic filters, or CMY mixing (depending on the product); all of them specified to match the SGM color palette.

DryTechTM
SGM's integrated patented Dehumidification process eliminates humidity and breaks down corrosive molecules deriving from polluted air to avoid destructive corrosion. Inbuilt dehumidifiers constantly remove trapped hydrogen from inside of the lighting fixture in a solid estate electrolytic process with no moving parts. The DryTechTM procedure is also based on a Ingress Protection rating of 65 or 66 (depending on the fixture), intended as a full protection against dust and other particles, while ensuring protection against direct water jets.

Stage Lighting

EXPERIENCE THE SGM LIGHTING TECHNOLOGY 

A professional stage lighting show demands fixtures you can trust. We won’t let you down. Seriously. SGM develops the best in class stage luminaires. We own the technology to build the flexible and efficient stage lights needed by the industry, where high quality, reliability, and innovation are some of the most important features. We push the limits within the world of stage lighting to create solutions that artists, lighting designers and audiences are really looking for.

 

Explore the different SGM luminaires for the entertainment industry 

Our extensive range of entertainment lighting include products such as moving heads, washes, strobes, blinders, flood lights, and effect lighting. This multi-purpose wide range of SGM fixtures is designed to tailor the lighting setup up to your needs. SGM Light is represented in many countries worldwide, and our products are used globally at all types of stage events and venues, including concerts, theatre productions, films, exhibitions, theme parks, and art installations.

 

Our unique testing and development process 

All SGM stage lights undergo rigorous testing and development, ensuring top-of-the-line LED fixtures that provide superior performance. We implement high quality standards for light output, color consistency, thermal management, and weatherproof resistance, to guarantee an extreme durability, excellent performance, and almost no maintenance.

A great example of this is the SGM G-7 Spot LED Moving Head, with IP-66 rating and active dehumidifiers. It is extremely durable in all sorts of conditions, where electronics and optics are protected by SGM’s exclusive DryTek system and a robust design. Our advanced technology ensures the interior of the fixture is preserved from external elements like water, dust, dirt, mud, sand, airborne pollution, extreme temperatures, and humidity, all of them very common at events or music festivals. Even though the SGM G-7 Spot LED Moving Head is perfect for touring and other outdoor events, these unique features also make it suitable for indoor installations and events, where long lifespan and low maintenance are must-haves.

 

Ultimate stage light testing

To be able to guarantee the durability and the best performance possible, all SGM stage lights are pushed to the limits in different ways. We lock up the fixtures in a salt chamber, we sandblast the lenses, we apply high-pressure washers over them, and we test them in very high and low temperatures. We even encase the fixtures in a block of ice before smashing it with a sledgehammer. It is literally a torture, but we are really focused on building fixtures you can trust.

 

Professional support 24/7

At SGM 24/7 technical support and professionalism is key when it comes to all our partners. We know the importance of a fast and efficient support, that is why we made this a top priority.
