Fantôme is Wynne Willson Gottelier's (WWG's) fully automated version of Robert Juliat's much acclaimed d'Artagnan 2.5kW HMI zoom/profile spotlight. 

Fantôme provides pan and tilt, via WWG's patented orbital, double mirror head (now manufactured under licence by High End Systems), with remote automation of zoom, focus, gobo, dimmer, frost/effect and iris, plus WWG's new ultra flexible, four blade, full-framingsystem. Gel scrolling is provided by a Licht Technik colour scroller.

Most people within the industry will already be aware of WWG's patented orbital, double mirror head, which enables the light beam to be moved within a 250° by 360° envelope without any of the distortion associated with single mirror devices.

The new and radical addition to the Fantôme unit is WWG’s unique, four blade, full-framing system: 

This system allows each of the 4 straight framing blades to fully occlude the light beam without any conflict between them. Each blade has a full 180° of rotation which, combined with full occlusion, allows any possible cut to be achieved. This huge rotation also allows up to 3 blades to be directly ‘stacked’ above each other, leading to many new framing and effect possibilities. In addition to these capabilities, the framing system also allows different framing blades to be remotely selected – Concave Curve, Convex Curve and Wavy Framing Blade are standard within the unit.
