Any standard steel or glass gobo in the Rosco catalog is available as a low-cost Cool Ink gobo for use in LED luminaires.

Cool Ink HD gobos are specially recommended for artwork with a black background, such as those shown here. These gobos are created on a film that incorporates an extra layer of opaque black.

LED luminaires are increasingly used as projectors in stage or event lighting designs. Because many of these luminaires generate less heat than traditional stage lighting fixtures, it is now appropriate to use low cost gobos made on a plastic base in the luminaire.

Cool Ink plastic gobos were developed by Rosco specifically for this purpose. The technology has been evolving since Rosco introduced the i-Pro Projector and i-Pro Slide Film. Today's Cool Ink gobos use the same transparency material and similar production techniques as the i-Pro Slide Film. These materials and techniques, in continuous use since 2,000, have been thoroughly tested by hundreds of users. The plastic film provides superior ink absorption resulting in the best possible image resolution.

The lightweight hard plastic rim Cool Ink gobos secure the plastic and protect the gobo. The adhesive, similar to that used and tested in the i-Pro process, makes the gobo more robust and prevents the product from wrinkling.

Cool Ink gobos are an excellent solution for short term projections in many LED luminaires. Please check with the fixture manufacturer, or with Rosco, to insure that your LED luminaire will accept plastic gobos.

Glass layers and bezels are added to the HD product to alleviate most issues caused by heat. Among the issues prevented are wrinkling of the plastic which can distort the image. The Cool Ink HD process, particularly for color or grey scale black and white images, offers a very high definition projection for short term applications.

We'll take your unique design and turn it into the high quality Cool Ink HD gobo. Digital artwork sent via e-mail is ideal, but we can also accept artwork via fax. Most image formats are supported.
