Abstract We examine some connections among phase-retrievable (not necessarily self-adjoint) operator-valued frames, projective group representation frames and representations of quantum channels. We first present some characterizations of phase-retrievable frames for general operator systems acting on both finite and infinite dimensional Hilbert spaces, which generalize the known results for vector-valued frames, fusion frames and frames of Hermitian matrices. For an irreducible projective unitary representation of a finite group, the image system is automatically phase-retrievable and, moreover, it is a point-wisely tight operator-valued frames. We generalize this notion to more general operator-valued frames, and prove that point-wise tight operator-valued frames are exactly the ones that are right equivalent to operator-valued tight frames. For an operator system that represent a quantum channel, we show that phase-retrievability of the system is independent of the choices of the representations of the quantum channel.
