Suggestion for Gobo Projector

(1/2) > >>

Al Craig:
Hi all,

Looking for a nice gobo projector that I can use for small mobile events. Something fairly bright, somewhat compact, reliable, and able to manually rotate the gobo to an exact location. I came across these as possible contenders. Can anyone make a recommendation?

Thanks!

ETC source 4 is the industry standard.  You want a nice pro dolly stand for it too.

Yep, I was going to say the same thing - it's hard to beat the good old-fashioned S4.  The S4 Junior Zoom is also a great choice if you want something a bit more compact, and if you must have LED the ETC ColorSource Spot Series is worth a look too.

I will note that the big advantage of using LED fixtures for gobo projection is the ability to use transparency film to create your own gobos, without having to resort to cooling solutions like the (apparently discontinued) Rosco ImagePro.

Of the three, in this price class the ADJ IKON Profile Plus is the one to go with.  I used one just last weekend under a canopy with chairs/tables at a backyard party, hung in the corner and aimed at the ceiling across the area - throw was 15-18' with "It's a boy" custom gobo in it.  They are great for that type of event.  32W LED light engine in my older light, now the "Plus" is 40W.  They will zoom down to a 15 degree spread so you get a little distance with them.
