Projected Image Digital’s sister company, the international gobo manufacturer Projected Image will be highlighting the latest additions to its extensive gobo catalogue and promoting its new Web site at PLASA. The Web site was re-launched in July, incorporating a new online catalogue.

Projected Image has just installed a larger Imagesetter. This outputs film at the higher resolution of 5,048 DPI (compared to 3,600 DPI previously). It enables the detail of color artwork to become even finer, with a crisper projected image and the added flexibility of progressive gradients.
