Gantom iQx

3W DMX Gobo Projector

The Gantom iQx features the same amazing optics of the Gantom iQ but adds integrated DMX control. Using LED technology and special optics, the Gantom iQx can render bright and sharp images from a variety of gobo materials including film, metal, and glass. This fixture opens up a vast new dimension of creative lighting possibilities by allowing images, patterns, and signage to be projected in ways that were impossible with traditional gobo projectors. The integrated 3 channel DMX
receiver gives the user full range of control over brightness and various dimming effects including candle flicker and strobe. The Gantom iQx is ideal for theatrical lighting applications. Our user friendly DMX Programmer app, available for Apple and Android devices, allows easy address DMX assignment and dimming control.

Q: What kind of gobos can you use with the Gantom iQx?

A: Any pattern that is cut into a 19mm (3/4”) diameter disk. Traditional gobos such as stainless steel or glass will work for permanent installations. For temporary events, inexpensive full color gobos can be made from 35mm film slides or self printed onto transparency paper.

For full color film gobos visit: . It is important that you know will print your gobo designs but cannot cut them into the correct circular shape. For this we recommend purchasing a 19mm (3/4”) craft punch online or at a craft store. Please note that film slides will fade over time as the film is a photosensitive material. Although this process renders sharp full color images at a low price, these slides
are designed for temporary use. Please consider stainless steel or glass for permanent applications.

For stainless steel or glass gobos visit: or .

Q: Can I print my own patterns?

A: Yes! As long as your able to create well defined patterns onto a 3/4″ (19mm) diameter disk that is less than 0.08″ (2mm) thick, it will load easily into the Gantom iQx and can render sharp patterns. You can also use a high resolution inkjet printer to create full colored patterns onto transparency paper. However, due to the resolution of typical printers and the amount of magnification with our optics, the projected pattern will not be as sharp as a professionally made pattern. Use the following sizing information
to design the images for your own custom gobos:

Q: How long will the Gantom iQx last?

A: Because this is an LED product, the Gantom iQx is rated for over 50,000 hours of lifetime. Stainless steel or glass gobos should last indefinitely while 35mm slides will fade over time.

Q: Can I run this from a battery for portable applications?

A: Yes, this product only uses about 3W of power and can be powered from a 9V or 12V battery for several hours depending on battery size.

Q: Can I run the Gantom iQx without DMX signal?

A: Yes, once the Gantom iQx is configured to a desired output pattern using the DMX Programmer App, it will retain that pattern in memory and automatically recall it when powered on if there is no signal input.
