Using a glass gobo you can project any image, logo, photo or text. Glass gobos are manufactured with high-quality materials able to withstand the heat and the UV radiations generated inside projectors and moving heads. The glass is provided on one side with a coating, a very thin film that can be made of aluminium, silicon or titanium. It is the coating which impart glass the different colors and which is laser-etched to obtain the different artworks on gobos,the gobo type depends on gobo / image size and number of colours on your artwork.
Our gobos can be used in the most powerful projectors and moving heads on the market such as: ClayPaky Alpha Spot 1500 and Mythos and SuperSharpy, Mac III, Dipas 5000, Robe Color Spot 2500, VL3000, Monster 2500, DTS XR3000, ETC SourceFour and many others.
Glass Gobo For LED Gobo Projectors
1).A gobo (or GOBO) derived from "Go Between" or "Goes Before Optics" is a physical stencil or template slotted inside, or placed in front of, a lighting source, used to control the shape of emitted light.
2).Gobos may be used, in connection with projectors and simpler light sources, to create lighting scenes in a theatrical application. Simple gobos, incorporated into automated lighting systems, are popular at nightclubs and other musical venues to create moving shapes. Gobos may also be used for architectural lighting, as well as in interior design, as in projecting a company logo on a wall or other feature.
3).The price of glass gobo depends on gobo size and number of colours on your artwork. In general the more colours and the bigger size the higher the price.
4).Lower emitted temperature allows using plastic / film gobos in LED fixtures. You can even print your own custom gobo at home using a transparency film foil. However the quality of DIY printed film gobos is in most cases much lower than the quality of glass gobos and film gobos also have limited lifetime (20-80 hours of projection-depends on light fixture).
