Colorizer Technical Specifications

Rosco Colorizers are a unique creation for pattern projection - a high temperature glass substrate combined with multi-colored abstract breakup designs. Colorizers have stretched designers imagination and creativity since their introduction five years ago.

  • Stippled: Dense abstract stippling of color combinations create a tightly focused colored break ups or soft, diffused color blends. Combined with steel patterns, the stippled Colorizer adds dimension and depth to the projected image. Available in five color groups.
  • Featherlight: Open, broken color pattern evenly balances color and white space. Add color filter to create more complex color schemes. Available in five color groups.
  • Free Flow: Free flow designs are colored throughout the design, with no discernible pattern to the color flow. These fully colored patterns are perfect for backing steel designs with broken color, or animating other images when used in Rosco Rotators. Available in three color groups.

SPECIFICATIONS

Moving Light sizes also available.

Thickness: 1.75mm.

Glass Base: Low Expansion Robax™ float glass.

Coating: Ceramic glaze.

Resolution: Not applicable.

INSTALLATION

Pattern Holder: Requires Glass Pattern Holder or Iris Slot Holder.

Orientation: No special orientation required.

Handling: Avoid fingerprints. Clean with a soft lint free cloth.

Max Wattage: 1000w continuous; 2500w short term (less than 20 minutes).

USAGE NOTES

  1. Colorizers can be used with a Glass Pattern Holder in the static slot of ellipsoidal luminaires, or can be used with an Iris slot holder in the Iris slot of ellipsoidal luminaires.
     
  2. Colorizers used in moving lights are provided without mounting rings of any type and must be installed as would any single layer glass gobo.
     
  3. Colorizers can be combined with steel patterns in the same glass gobo holder or may be used in separate holders to achieve differing focal points.
     
  4. Colorizers may be used with higher wattage luminaires than indicated above. However excessive heat may cause premature color degradation or glass breakage.

ColorWave Technical Specifications

Combine the deep textures of Image Glass and the vibrant saturated colors of Permacolor filters, and the result is ColorWaves™. Taking advantage of the unique color shifting properties of dichroic coatings, ColorWaves project the deep patterns of ImageGlass and add colors that change and swell as the angle of the texture alters. Use ColorWaves in Gobo Rotators for dramatic eye-catching effects.

  • Sharp Focus: Vibrant colors and sharp patterns mixing colors together for aggressive, dominant effects.
     
  • Soft Focus: Run the barrel from sharp to focus and as the patterns softens the colors shift hues and orientation to softly blended multicolor projections.

SPECIFICATIONS

Sizes Available: 86mm Std B Size
Moving Light sizes also available.

Thickness: 2.5 - 4.5mm (depends on specific pattern).

Glass Base: Tempered Soda Lime.

Coating: Dichroic color (TiO2/SiO2).

Resolution: Not applicable.

INSTALLATION

Pattern Holder: Requires Iris Slot Holder.

Orientation: Coating (textured side) towards the lamp.

Handling: Avoid fingerprints. Clean with a soft lint free cloth.

Max Wattage: 575w continuous; 750w short term (less than 20 minutes).

USAGE NOTES

  1. Prismatics must be used with an Iris Slot Gobo Holder in the Iris slot of ellipsoidal luminaires.
     
  2. When combined with steel gobos, install the steel pattern farthest from the lamp in order to project the steel design in sharp focus.

Image Glass Technical Specifications

Image Glass projects texture and shading. Abstract patterns embossed into heat resistant tempered glass create remarkably varied patterns combining light, shadow, and depth. Unlike steel patterns, these complex textures and tones are achieved with very little light loss.

  • Sharp Focus: Textures etched deeply into the glass can be projected in great detail, rendering sharp, strong abstract patterns more complex than those created using steel gobos.
  • Soft Focus: Running the barrel of your luminaire to a soft focus shows the many possible patterns that can be achieved at various focal points. Deeper patterns have a wider range of textures.

SPECIFICATIONS

Sizes Available: 86mm Std B Size
Moving Light sizes also available.

Thickness: 2.5 - 4.5mm (depends on specific pattern).

Glass Base: Tempered, pressed Soda Lime.

Coating: None.

Resolution: Not applicable.

INSTALLATION

Pattern Holder: Requires Iris Slot Holder.

Orientation: No special orientation required.

Handling: Avoid fingerprints. Clean with a soft lint free cloth.

Max Wattage: 575w continuous; 750w short term (less than 20 minutes).

USAGE NOTES

  1. Image Glass must be used with an Iris Slot Gobo Holder in the Iris slot of ellipsoidal luminaires.
  2. Image Glass used in moving lights are mounted in a metal bezel to facilitate installation.

Prismatics Technical Specifications

Rosco developed Prismatics to combine bright multi-colored accents with depth and texturing created by the dimensionality of the glass chips. Prismatics are made with Permacolor dichroic filter pieces fused onto an hi-temperature glass base. Prismatics in sharp focus project a shattered spectrum, or softly diffused color blends when focused soft.

  • Sharp Focus: Angled, geometric chips project rich saturated colors, rendering sharp, strong abstract patterns.
     
  • Soft Focus: Taken out of focus, Prismatics project soft blends of colorful textures. Unlike Colorizers, Prismatics maintain their bright colors, even when focused very softly.

SPECIFICATIONS

Sizes Available: 86mm Std B Size
Moving Light sizes also available (minimum size, 37.5mm).

Thickness: 4.5mm (depends on specific pattern).

Glass Base: High Temperature, low expansion borasilicate.

Coating: None.

Resolution: Not applicable.

INSTALLATION

Pattern Holder: Requires Iris Slot Holder.

Orientation: Nearest to lamp when combined with a steel gobo.

Handling: Avoid fingerprints. Clean with a soft lint free cloth.

Max Wattage: 575w continuous; 750w short term (less than 20 minutes).

USAGE NOTES

  1. Prismatics must be used with an Iris Slot Gobo Holder in the Iris slot of ellipsoidal luminaires.
  2. When combined with steel gobos, install the steel pattern farthest from the lamp in order to project the steel design in sharp focus.
