Check out Black and White Glass Gobos for added depth with shades of gray for a more dimensional feel. Black and White Glass Gobos have the advantage of being able to reproduce more complex images than Steel Gobos.
Rosco custom glass gobos can be made to fit any stationary or moving lights. They offer the advantages of very sharp fidelity in both photographic and drawn images.
We'll take your unique design and turn it into the highest quality black & white glass gobo available. Digital artwork sent via e-mail is ideal, but we can also accept artwork via fax. Most image formats are supported.
Black and White Glass Gobos are typically made on high temperature borosilicate glass coated. Within Rosco’s coating expertise, Rosco recognizes that light fixtures’ gobo requirements and optics vary. Recognizing this, Rosco utilizes two black and white coatings: the standard Ultra-Matte™ aluminum coating for most fixtures. For certain fixtures such as some Vari Lite units, or upon request, Rosco B/W glass gobos can be manufactured using Black Oxide Aluminum. This coating, applied to the same high temperature borosilicate, will reduce imaging problems found in some fixtures, such as double imaging due to internal reflections. As always we recommend coating away from the lamp for most fixtures and especially for the Black Oxide AL coating side (black side) should always be away from the source. Failure to install this gobo properly will result in immediate damage to the gobo.
- Rosco's manufactured black & white glass gobos can be as thin at 1.1mm thickness.
- Custom glass gobos with only black and clear require 1 day to be processed plus 2 business days to be produced
