What is a GOBO?

A “Gobo” is a small stencilled circular disc, and used in lighting fixtures to create a projected image or pattern. The term Gobo is short for “Go Between Optics”, describing the location where it needs to be positioned in the light path of a lighting fixture. In today’s event market they have taken on a more creative role as technology advances allow for more detailed and impressive shapes to be created.
Gobo’s come in many different diameters, ranging from approx 20mm through to approx 150mm. The diameter of a gobo is dictated by the fixture, so it is very important to ensure you know what fixture the gobo needs to be used in prior to manufacture.

What events are Gobo’s used on?

Events such as gala dinners, product launches, award ceremonies use gobo’s to support the event branding and to provide visual interest. The popular gobo customization now features the names or initials of the bride and groom, supplemented by different patterns.
