G-LEC’s new Phantom 30 was recently seen in the US for the first time at LDI 2007 in Orlando. With a resolution four times higher than the original Phantom, the Phantom 30 meets all the requirements for a transparent, super bright, high resolution, lightweight LED system that can be used indoors and out, whatever the weather.

Like all G-LEC products, the Phantom 30's modular frame is transparent, lightweight, and easy-to-assemble. But the Phantom 30 is G-LEC’s highest resolution yet, with each 3 feet x 3 feet (945mm x 960mm) frame holding 32 x 32 ultra bright LED pixels at a pitch of 1¼ ins (30mm). Fix Phantom 30 frames together for smooth, sharp video images and curves that appear as true curves, instead of being pixilated.

The original Phantom, with 2½-inch (60mm) pitch, has been renamed Phantom 60 and the entire system has been designed for mixing and matching; connecting frames together regardless of resolution. Both Phantom 30 and Phantom 60 use G-LEC’s fiber optic-based data transfer technology for absolute control, ensuring that images are rendered pixel-by-pixel: graphics, including corporate logos, are crisp and sharp while video is fast and smooth. The system also enables larger and special constructions; stage and TV productions can show mixed media graphics easily, while for fixed architectural installations the sky’s the limit.

Extremely light, the Phantom 30 weighs in at only 17½lbs (8kg), and powerful control software provides the capability of graphics on up to four planes, from any DMX512, MIDI, or SMPTE source as well as standard video input.
