Custom Black & White Gobo

Black and White Spectrum gobos ("lithos") can be made from almost any image. With an ultra-thin aluminum coating, these heat resistant glass gobo can be etched with super fine details and incredibly smooth gradients.

Spectrumgobos can withstand temperatures found in modern ellipsoidal luminaires ("lekos") that use the new generation of sub-1000 watt lamps and a dichroic reflector. Moving lights using metal halide sources up to 1200 watts are generally compatible as well.

However since some luminaires generate an abnormal amount of heat, it is advised to check with Rosco to see if your fixture is suitable for use with Spectrumgobos.

The quality of your custom gobo will be determined, in large part by the quality of the artwork you submit.   You can check out custom gobo design artwork formats for more information.
