SGM G-Spot Scoops Top PLASA Award

All the endeavours that have gone into making SGM's G-Spot the most revolutionary intelligent LED moving head on the market paid dividends when the IP-65 rated fixture was to pick up a top award at the prestigious PLASA Awards for Innovation at this year's PLASA London tradeshow.

A packed audience gathered to see SGM CEO Peter Johansen collect the coveted prize from PLASA chairman, Ed Pagett in a ceremony at the ExCeL's AudioLab Arena during this year's show, as PLASA CEO Matthew Griffiths made the announcements.

The PLASA Awards for Innovation recognize products that advance the industry by demonstrating a new style of thinking, improving technical practice or taking a key step forward in terms of safety. During the show's opening two days, 45 new products were judged by an independent panel of expert judges who toured the show floor to view each product presentation.

The G-Spot was lauded for a number of reasons. Firstly, it has achieved double the light output since the first protocol was unveiled and now delivers a brightness that outperforms most 1500W discharge lamps, with a virtually unlimited color palette.

However, its IP-65 rating is the real differentiator, making it water-, dirt- and sand-proof. This means there will be no accumulation of dust or other externally induced impact on optics, gobos, or the lamp unit, and so reduces maintenance to a minimum.

These were all points picked up on by the adjudicating panel, who noted that "[G-Spot] is the first fully weatherized automated profile spot. It's an elegant and aesthetically pleasing fixture that will be able to withstand any show in any environment and be able to withstand even the British festival season."

Johansen adds, "In such a competitive marketplace, it's gratifying that the judges have recognized that G-Spot stands out as being completely unique. We already have huge advanced orders on this fixture, and once we start shipping, we know this will find applications in arduous environments and climates where it has never previously been possible to deploy a product of this nature."
