Lighting Product Of The Year, Luminaire: SGM G-1 Beam

The top products of the past year are here once again. Chosen by our panels of prestigious judges in three categories—lighting, projection, and sound—several months were spent debating the Live Design 2015-2016 Products Of The Year

It’s fully waterproof. It can be battery-powered. It features wireless DMX. It’s the SGM G-1 Beam, and one judge calls it “a truly innovative technical advance.” High contrast, rapid movement, and super bright, with up to 12 hours of operation under battery power, and new, patent-pending position preset programming, the G-1 has so many features our judges praise. One simply says, “I love this light. It’s a clever fixture that has great uses for many applications.” Another adds, “One of the most innovative fixtures on the market, and SGM is one of the few companies that are making headway in environmental innovations within our industry, solving the inevitable problems that come along with fixtures being placed out in the elements.”

Products of the year will be presented along with the Live Design Achievement Awards and the ninth annual Excellence in Live Design Awards on June 13 in New York.
