Laymance lighting products are available throughout the Houston area, and while they are a respected brand, they don’t offer the breadth of features that Phantom’s products do. Optical framing projectors are impressive pieces of technology, and it’s important to compare features between brands before selecting one. A well designed projector should be able to provide many years of excellent performance efficiently and safely. Phantom’s projectors are built with these principles in mind and can be customized to best fit into the venue’s or home’s surroundings.
What makes Phantom’s projectors the superior choice when compared to Laymance lighting?
- Masking methods: Most illumination companies only offer a single masking method (a hand cut template) for their projectors, which greatly reduces ease of use and versatility. Phantom can also provide a hand cut template for a venue or home, but this is only recommended for subjects with a unique shape, like sculptures. For paintings, photographs and other rectangular pieces, Phantom recommends its adjustable shutters. Adjustable shutters are easy to use and don’t have to be confined to a single piece like a hand cut template is. That means a homeowner or venue manager can switch out artwork at a moment’s notice with only minor adjustments.
- Voltage options: Other companies typically only offer a single voltage option (120V). Phantom has a 120V version of its projector but also offers a 277V version of its optical projector. This model is comparable to many stage projectors used in professional settings.
- Housing options: Laymance lighting projectors are only available with a single housing option, which can make for difficult installation in some settings. Phantom produces five different housing options for its projectors, each of them formatted for a particular purpose. For example, some are ideal when there is no bottom access available, while another is for buildings with little ceiling depth. Extra housing options means the installer can easily set the projector and do it without having to tear up the ceiling.
- Transformer options: Few companies allow the client to pick the transformer of their choice, but Phantom considers this another important part of the customization process. Electrical transformers are lighter and smaller, making them easier to conceal and place in compact settings. Magnetic transformers, though, run at a lower temperature and last much longer, so they only have to be replaced occasionally.
- Ease of installation: Laymance, Wendel and other optical projector brands can only be installed by technicians with special training. That limits a client’s options when looking for repairs or help with installation. As a result, it increases the cost to install these products. Phantom’s optical framing projector does not require proprietary knowledge to install and can be placed by most professionals. That reduces the cost of the job and means a home or venue will be able to get support quickly.
With Phantom’s range of optical projector options, a venue or homeowner can get the perfect fit for their artwork, no matter the size or shape.
