White Light Adds SGM P-5 LED Wash to Hire Inventory
The agreement to supply 24 of the high power, low profile rectangular fixtures, was confirmed at this month’s ABTT Show in London.
Incorporating 44 x RGBW 10W LEDs, the fixture offers CTC and White Balance control, with just 450W power consumption and LED source life expectancy of 50,000 hours. Stretching the output-to-consumption envelope by providing an overall efficacy factor of 52 lumens per watt (channelled through the 15°, 21° and 43° lens options) the green credentials of the P-5 raise the benchmark considerably.
Said SGM UK’s Ian Kirby, “This is a highly significant sale for us as it is the first substantial P-5 rental sale — and to one of the industry leaders. Given that White Light also distribute major lighting brands, it is extremely pleasing that they have chosen SGM, and a high premium product such as the P-5.”
Kirby added that it also rekindled a relationship with White Light’s Hire & Technical Director, Dave Isherwood that began two decades ago
The latter explained that the P-5’s had been on his radar prior to this spring’s Prolight+Sound Show in Frankfurt. “But that show gave me the first opportunity to see them ‘in the flesh’. I then took a good look at them back at base under demo conditions — with various internal and external designers.”
His verdict was that they would be ideal for a number of key markets. “We’ve had designers looking for punchy, compact LED wash units for a while, both for use indoors and outdoors, and the feature set on the P-5, including compatibility with Wireless Solution’s wireless DMX, fits perfectly into our existing inventory.
“We therefore expect them to work across a number of our key markets, including the Corporate and Live Event markets, dry hire and concert touring.”
