Gobo FAQ | Instagobo


Glass gobos are made from transparent glass with a partial mirror coating to block the light and produce "black" areas in the projected image. This eliminates any need for bridging, since the glass itself is the support, and allows more intricate images to be produced. Glass gobos can also include colored areas (much like stained glass windows), whether by multiple layers of dichroic glass (one for each color) glued on an aluminium or chrome coated black and white gobo, or by newer technologies that allow the thickness of the dichroic coating (and therefore the color) to be varied in a controlled way on a single piece of glass, making it possible to turn a color photo into a glass gobo.

There are two types of gobos: steel and glass.

Here are numerous benefits with glass gobos, one having a long life span. One more benefit of glass is that complicated images can be generated with very excellent quality. One more advantage is glass will certainly not distort or melt when used continuously.

Notice: We recommend all gobos with image size outer diameter 37.5mm to fit in glass gobo.
