An optical framing projector is a sophisticated piece of technology that has to be precisely built and configured. Normally installed to show off one or more pieces of art, they are a popular choice for museums, galleries and homeowners with art collections to display. Because this technology is so intricate, there aren’t many companies that can produce it at a high level. Phantom, though, is one of these companies, and its art lighting has a number of extra features that make it stand out against the competition.
How does Phantom’s optical framing projector work?
During operation, the aim of the device is to take a beam of light and form it precisely to the shape of the artwork. The beam first passes through a small aperture, and this filters out any unfocused rays. Phantom’s technology has a pair of condenser lenses, and these focus the light and filter it even more. Finally, before the beam exits the device, it is passed through a cut metal slide or a pair of adjustable shutters. Either one finishes the beam shaping by masking out the light that is not needed. The result is the spread of illumination that forms perfectly to the artwork.
What makes Phantom’s optical framing projector the superior choice?
Phantom’s technology is the only one compatible with either a custom cut metal slide or adjustable shutters. A custom cut metal slide is typically used for irregularly shaped artwork, like sculptures, or multiple hangings on a wall. These can work with nearly any square or rectangular piece of art and can also be customized to a set of pieces. Adjustable shutters are secured to the device with a pair of Allen screws so they will not move once set.
Phantom’s devices are set in one of five housing options, something that is unique to Phantom. These options are formatted for different installation settings, like buildings with new construction or areas that don’t allow for bottom or top access. These housing options make installation easier because they don’t require as much construction to place.
Ease of installation is critical because it can affect the cost of the project and will specify how easy it is to get support when the device requires maintenance. Phantom’s technology is designed so that most professionals can handle it without any trouble. No additional training is required to install or perform maintenance on the device, something that most lighting companies don’t focus on.
Museums, galleries and homeowners that want to display their artwork properly can get what they’re looking for with this technology.
