What is a gobo?
A gobo is a heat-resistant metal or glass mask, which is mounted in front of the light source of a projector. The light is therefore emitted in a specific shape. A gobo projector allows you to depict images, company logos or messages on a specific surface. Gobo projectors are popular for use in events, shopping centers, at parties or as garden illumination. Depending on the projection distance, we differentiate between mini (short distance), midi (medium distances), maxi (long distances) and high-end projectors (very long distances).
Glass gobo or metal gobo
There are basically two types of finishes: Metal gobos and glass gobos. In the case of metal gobos, images are created with the light emitting through openings that were cut into metal sheeting beforehand. The light passes through these openings to create the desired projection. Metal gobos are not suitable for the projection of finer details or points of light.
A glass gobo is made of heat-resistant glass and is coated with an opaque metal coating. The projection is created by the light emitting through that metal layer. In contrast to a metal gobo, a glass gobo can also project open shapes and letters, where the central parts are carried by the glass layer. Glass gobos are a lot more expensive, as the manufacturing process is much more intricate – but it does allow the projection of complicated designs and shapes.
