LED Technology
To achieve an outstanding luminous output in all the 16 Quad LED pixel clusters, the versatile and compact VPL 305-20 uses a larger 6 x 6 mm imaging area with four full LED chips per pixel. By using this technology is possible to increase the output in all colors, while avoiding multi-color shadows and scalloping. The size of a SGM Quad pixel cluster is smaller than the visual acuity of a standard human eye, 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 VPL 305-20 uses a revolutionary 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 305-20 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 top-end LED design, the VPL 305-20 creates high visibility media patterns for viewers at large distances, but it also avoids the typical blinding effect of big pixels in close distances. By expanding the imaging area, increasing the pixel brightness and pre-mixing the colors inside the Quad cluster, SGM improves considerably the viewer's experience for direct view applications.

One single VAC circuit is able to run the fixtures, with no external power supplies needed. The same multi-core cable is able to handle both power and data. This smart media system has been designed as an easy and reliable solution for complex and large installations in tight space areas, adding important energy and cost savings. When connected together, there is no gap between connected fixtures, so they can work as a single LED pixel luminaire.

Color Temperature selection
Via SGM Video Pixel Administrator software, it is possible to set the color temperature preset for the VPL 305-20 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.

To configure and manage its VP luminaires, SGM offers the Video Pixel Administrator software with real time monitoring and network capabilities. It is an intuitive, powerful, and state-of-the-art piece of software designed to take advantage of the revolutionary VPL 305-20 technology via a single Ethernet connection. Just plug and play.

Optional data distribution
In order to give solutions for big media installations based on the Video Pixel luminaires, SGM offers a powerful data distribution device: the VP Processor. This compact and reliable device can manage Gigabit ethernet networks, and it is fully compatible with ArtNet and sACN protocols. It also manages the new VP-Net protocol, created by SGM for the Video Pixel series.

IP, IK, and C-5M rating
The VPL 305-20 is IP66-rated and IK05 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 resistant and featuring C5-M (ISO 12944) corrosion class, it is ideal for outdoor applications, while being practically maintenance-free makes it a sustainable and long-lasting choice for indoor events and installations as well.

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 noiseless thermal management system.

Applications and Video capabilities
This video pixel linear product can achieve multiple effects and is perfect for video and lighting displays. The clear lens allows direct view of sharp pixels with an immense brightness. With its compact size, this versatile product can be used in tight space structures or integrated in big pixel-mapping setups.

Mounting options
To mount this fixture, simply attach the VPL 305-20 to any of the VPL Installation Brackets, and tighten up the screws in both sides of the profile. VPL Touring Brackets with adjustable locking knobs are also available. The VPL fixtures can be mounted in practically any installation or stage lighting application.



Included SGM technologies

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.

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.

Stage Lighting


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.
