The two fine art lighting projectors are very similar in design except for the light source, housings and mounting techniques. Utilizing a special 75-Watt MR16 lamp, the Phantom Contour Projector lens system collects 90% of the light and produces foot candle levels exceeding the 150-Watt lamp used in the Wendelighting® optical projector.
The reduction in heat has allowed the engineers at Phantom Lighting System to reduce the size of the enclosures by 50% and create five different unique housings to handle any installation condition. The innovation in lamp technology and lens design has convinced fine art enthusiasts and professional lighting consultants to recognize the Phantom Contour Projector as the fixture of choice for fine art lighting!
How does the Phantom Contour Projector compare with the Halo framing Projector? The two lights are vastly different in optics, flexibility and performance. The Halo projector has a fixed optical system, which limits the performance and prohibits mounting the projector off center to compensate for key stoning, glare or frame shadows. The large housing is designed for new construction or installation where attic access is available. The Contour Projector on the other hand, has a focal lens system that can be adjusted to accommodate most art. The simple mounting techniques and multiple confinement methods make even a novice look like a lighting professional.
Let’s compare the Phantom Contour Projector against the Lightolier Projector? The two art framing projectors are vastly different in optical performance, flexibility and light output. The Lightolier framing projector has a fixed optical system, which limits the performance and prohibits mounting the projector off center to compensate for key stoning, glare or frame shadows. The shutter blade system cannot be locked into position and is always out of adjustment. The medium sized round housing is designed for new construction or installations where attic access is available. The Phantom Contour Projector on the other hand, has a totally flexible focal lens system that can be varied to accommodate most art and sculptures. The simple mounting methods, high performance optical system and multiple confinement methods of the Phantom Contour Projector blow the Lightolier projector away!
