Rosco Cool Ink Plastic Gobos

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.

 
Rosco Cool Ink HD Plastic Gobos

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 HD gobos are recommended when your artwork has a black background.

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. Rosco provides the same fast turnaround, usually just 24 hours from receiving your artwork to shipping the product, for both Cool Ink and Cool Ink HD gobos.

Email you artwork to Sales at Grandstage.com for a quotation on these custom patterns.

 
GAM Products is now part of Rosco!

GAM Products has long been a leader in the field of standard Gobos.  Since then they have been pushing the limits of patterning with light. They were aquired by Rosco in March of 2013.

The original motion effect, GAM Products manufactures the GAM Scene Machine is a modular system consisting of 3 pieces, a projector head, effects machine, and a lens.  This popular effect uses and 18" disk to create water, fire, and rain type effects. Users can choose from a 1K or 2K incandescent source or a 2.5K HMI with DMX Control.

The GAM FilmFX offers the same great effects as with the traditional scene machine but works in your existing ellipsoidal spotlights.  This unit easily fits into Strand Leko, Strand SL, ETC Source Four, Altman Shakespeare, and Selecon Pacific lights, allowing you to have realistic fire, water, and clouds all on a budget.

Rosco Image Pro

Rosco has again added a powerful new tool to the lighting designers bag of tricks.  In short, the ImagePro™ projects an image created from a simple plastic slide. Attach an iPro Slide cartridge to the back plate of the ImagePro™ and insert it into the iris slot of any one of several common luminaries. Then simply turn on the light to project anything from a dazzling full color panorma to a corporate logo, or even a last minute custom gobo texture.

Even at 100% intensity, the iPro Slide will last from 15-50 hours with no fading or degradation. Click here to see how professional lighting desiners are using projections as scenery.

 

Apollo Design and Technology

This truly amazing projector provides large scale 3-D effects previously unavailable to lighting designers. The device utilizes a 200 watt Enhanced Metal Arc source, whose short arc allows for an output of 5K lumens, and a 2000 hour lamp life. The color temperature is similar to a Xenon source at 6000K but with nearly two times the luminous effectiveness (or efficacy), of a halogen source.
