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. 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.

SGM's TruColorTM luminaires use an enhanced color engine that improves accuracy and consistency both for color mixing and low-end dimming, while using the same procedures to match the SGM color palette.

Touring VPL 1220-20 is a powerful direct view pixel product designed to reproduce pixel mapping and media effects in temporary environments. With industry leading intensity and wide-angle visibility, it is one of the most dynamic direct view fixtures available. Using touring industry standard power and data connectors, and with a selection of low-profile brackets and accessories, this easily integrated fixture is the perfect fit for concerts, stadiums, sets, and sound stages. Touring VPL is available in 3 different lengths, 5 different lenses, shape-able brackets.

LED Technology
To achieve an outstanding luminous output, Touring VPL uses a large 6 x 6 mm imaging area with four RGB LED chips per pixel. By using this configuration, is possible to increase the output in all colors, while avoiding multi-color shadows and scalloping. The size of these Quad pixel clusters is smaller than the visual resolution of a human eye at distance, which means that the four LED chips in each cluster can be seen as a single large pixel at the distance of 6 meters. The LEDs expected lifetime is 50,000 hours.

Color mixing
The Touring VPL uses In-Cluster color mixing technology to enhance the color homogeneity for each pixel. As a result, every color covers the full Quad pixel, achieving a bright and wide imaging area. The VPL is fully color calibrated to ensure consistency and uniformity, while containing the same powerful colors of the SGM's product family.

Superior Direct View Experience
Because of its ingenious LED design, the Touring VPL creates high visibility media patterns for viewers at large distances while avoiding the typical blinding effect of large LED pixels at close distance. By expanding the imaging area, increasing the pixel brightness and pre-mixing the colors inside the Quad cluster, SGM considerably improves the viewer's experience for direct view applications.

One 208-240 VAC circuit is required to run the fixtures, with no external power supplies needed. Industry standard connectors compatible with powerCON® TRUE1 and XLR - RJ45 data connectors are included. This reliable widely available solution for distribution results in time and cost savings. All lengths of Tourign VPL can be installed directly next to each other. Pixel spacing is maintained between connected fixtures, so they can work as a single LED pixel fixture.

Color Temperature Selection
Using SGM Video Pixel Administrator software, it is possible to set the color temperature preset for the Touring VPL within a 2000K - 10000K range. This is a very powerful feature to create warm or cold ambient lighting, but also to emulate the white color temperature coming from other light sources.

Software and Configuration

SGM Network Administrator is used to configure and manage Touring VPLs with real time monitoring and network capabilities. It is an intuitive, powerful, piece of software designed to work with a PC via a single Ethernet connection. Just plug and play.

IP, IK, and Corrosion Rating
Touring VPL is IP65-rated and IK08 protected, ensuring that the unit is kept free from externally induced particles and liquids, such as smoke fluid, dust, dirt, airborne pollution, and humidity. Being UV and corrosion resistant, it is ideal for outdoor applications. And being practically maintenance-free makes it a sustainable and long-lasting choice for any temporary environment.

Thermal management
By using the Quad-pixel technology, SGM achieves a high reliability and consistency for each LED while offering a large addressable pixel. The heat is optimally distributed because each Quad-pixel Cluster is divided into four independent Full-Color LEDs. The LEDs' lifetime is ensured by this silent thermal management system.

Mounting options
Multiple mounting options are available. Two touring clamps, a quick mount clamp and a slim-line clamp are available. Additionally, a swivel bracket and link plate are provided to enable shapes and links to be created between fixtures. The VPL fixtures can be mounted in practically any stage lighting application.


Included SGM technologies

This thermal management technology provides advanced temperature control monitored via sensors and software, keeping optimal LED junction temperatures, and ensuring maximum reliability for long-term use. The ThermalDrive system includes cutting-edge heat removal via passive thermal techniques and active forced-air cooling (depending on the product), specifically designed to maintain LED efficiency while extending fixture's lifetime.

SGM uses Full Range Calibration in all LED fixtures over CIE color space and black body curve, measured via spectrometer and SGM Illumination Lab software. 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.
