SGM Again Takes Home The Prize For The Best Lighting Product

20 April 2015

At the Prolight+Sound International Press Award, also known as the PIPA award, SGM was nominated for the Q-7 in the category of best lighting product up against Robe BMFL and Martin Professional Mac Quantum Wash.

The multipurpose extremely bright luminaire Q-7 RGBW won the prestigious award during the Prolight+Sound Show in Frankfurt last week.

Journalists from more than 100 dedicated special interest magazines from all over the world were called upon to nominate and vote for the best equipment in the marketplace, and they selected the Q-7. 

The PIPA Prolight + Sound International Press Award has truly established itself as the ‘Grammy’ of the industry, so it was with great honour that SGM’s CEO Peter Johansen and MD of SGM Deutschland Michael Herweg accepted the award. 

“To be recognised for this ground-breaking LED fixture is amazing. It has quickly become an industry standard and I am proud to see it implemented in so many great designs,” explained Peter Johansen. During the show, it also featured among many SGM products in PRG’s Festhalle, display.

The Q-7 is a low-profile and compact RBGW flood, blind and strobe containing 2,000 powerful LEDs providing 28,000 lumens. It is also available in as a Q-7 W with a pure white light output offering a stunning 60,000 lumens - unprecedented in the industry. 

With this recent acknowledgement from industry experts, and with the many installations and tours worldwide, the Q-7 has been established as the product to watch - “with caution,” as Johansen said smiling. “It is bloody bright!”
