Moving Heads

Awards Gallore!

SGM G-Spot

The G-Spot won the prestigious top industry PLASA Award for Innovation. SGM G-Spot provides a LED moving head spot with numerous revolutionary functionalities. The G-Spot is a multi-environmental, maintenance-free fixture with an IP-rating of 65.

More and more moving heads are being exposed to wet and humid conditions. The consequences of such conditions are high, causing compromising of cooling effect, luminous intensity and projection quality, while dirt accumulates inside. Based on the revolutionary P-5 technology which includes the highest luminous output, SGM claims to have overcome these challenges.

Being water, dirt and sand proof, there will be no accumulation of dust or externally induced impact on internal optics, gobos or the light source unit, no smoke fluid build-up inside and no humidity inside. The inner cleanliness of the luminary will be kept perfect and it will run an excellent performance in any condition.

Worst case scenario in a turbulent environment, the front lens must merely be wiped off, which is a huge time and cost saver effectively eliminating the need for cleaning and maintenance. The applicability of the G-Spot is unlimited; the IP65 moving head can replace any lighting products in any environment.

Main Features include:

• High power RGBY LED light source
• IP65 rating
• Maintenance-free and multi-environmental fixture
• No accumulation of dust or externally induced impact on internal optics, gobos or the light source unit
• No smoke fluid build-up inside
• Integrated dehumidifier
• Perfect inner cleanness of the luminary
• Excellent performance in any conditions

An award winner, the GT-1 from GLP is a true hybrid fixture, working as both a Spot and a Beam fixture with highest levels of performance. Using a high powered 470 Watt discharge lamp, its high quality optical system produces a light beam that features an enormous 22:1 ratio zoom range from 2.5° to 55°.

When in spot mode, the GT-1 offers a wide range of effects, including CMY colour mixing, eight rotating gobos, 14 fixed pattern gobos, additional beam reduction gobos, and an interchangeable animation wheel. But it doesn’t stop there; the GT-1 also features three different rotating prisms, a fixed colour wheel with CTO/CTB filters, and a frost for softening the beam.

When in beam mode, the GT-1 produces an astonishing highly parallel beam of light at 2.5° through its large 145mm diameter front lens that remains bright and consistent over long distances.

An award winner, MAGICDOT- R is reportedly the first professional moving head LED luminaire with a single optical collimator. The new high-efficiency optical system measuring 94 mm in diameter and weighing over 200 grammes required more than two years of development and perfection. The result is an intense beam of less than 5° using a multi-chip RGBW LED with a light-emitting surface of 8 mm2.

With its minimalist cylindrical design, the innovative MAGICDOT R (patent pending), capable of continuous double rotation on the pan & tilt axes, allows the user to create groups of luminaires and control each light emitter individually in all directions. Leaving a minimum amount of space between multiple luminaires will make it possible to create configurations never before dreamt of.

Highly compact, light, ultra-fast and powerful, the MAGICDOT-R is equipped with a new 60 Watt RGBW multi-chip LED emitter paired with a 94 mm high-efficiency collimator. The fixture offers an overall luminous flux of 1,800 lumen and a luminous intensity of 180,000 candela for an overall consumption of only 130 Watt. This new high-power LED source has required implementing a special phase-change liquid cooling system using a heat pipe. The MAGICDOT- R is the ideal tool for creating moveable virtual sets and complex light compositions with multiple beams.

Main Features include:

• Beam aperture: 4,5°, 85% optic efficiency, High-efficiency 94 mm PMMA optics
• Continuous pan and tilt rotation
