I am often asked to compare optical framing projectors from Wendelighting® and Phantom™ Lighting.
The answer is quite simple – State of the art LED technology, precision optics, user friendly IC Rated housings and multiple masking methods are obvious benefits when you compare optical framing projectors from Phantom™ Lighting and Wendelighting®.
Phantom Contour Projectors are designed by Tom Kretzschmar, a professional licensed journeyman electrician, lighting designer and experienced lighting technician with over 40+ years of experience in fine art illumination.

When you compare optical framing projectors to other art lighting projectors, nothing is more impressive or visually effective than the Phantom contour projector. A hidden light source with a powerful controlled beam of light that precisely illuminates the canvas. The results are dramatic!
LED Lamp Technology
The Phantom Contour projector utilizes a proprietary LED light engine with a custom concentric parabolic reflector, aluminum heat sink, active DC cooling fan and CREE© XHP70 3000K LED chip producing 90+ CRI and average lamp life of 30,000+ hours.
High performance variable optics system consisting of two (2) 39mm focal lenses and two (2) 60mm condensing lenses designed for both long and short throws as well as off center mounting. The special Achromatic focal lenses produce crisp sharp lines without any chromatic abnormalities.
Multiple Masking Methods
There are three masking methods available for the LED Phantom Contour Projector: standard aluminum shutters for square or rectangular artworks, custom-cut brass templates for multiple or irregularly shaped artworks, and stainless steel gobos (Rosco© Type M) for patterned lighting effects.
Probably the biggest difference when you compare optical framing projectors from Phantom™ Lighting and Wendelighting® is the overall performance, user friendly mounting methods, tri-phase LED drivers and multiple masking methods that include adjustable shutters, brass templates and pattern gobos.
