Gobo derived from "Go Between" or "Goes Before Optics" is a metal template slotted inside or placed in front of a lighting source used to control the shape of emitted light.

Gobos can be manufactured using Advanced Chemical Etching's precision photo etching process, usually made from hard rolled Stainless Steel or Aluminium. Gobos, incorporated into automated lighting systems, are popular at nightclubs and other musical venues to create moving shapes. They may also be used, in connection with projectors and simpler light sources, to create lighting scenes in a theatrical application. Gobos can also be used for architectural lighting as well as in interior design, for projecting a company logo on a wall or other feature. Gobos are now often used in weddings and corporate events to add a personal touch to the look of an event. With company logos, the happy couple's names, or just about any artwork turned into a projected image the possibilities are endless. All we need is a suitably prepared CAD generated artwork and we can manufacture your bespoke Gobo design.
