Explanation:
Pattern Masks

There are two common lighting instruments that accept a metal disc into which has been etched a sillouette --- these are the ELLIPSOIDAL and the SCANNERS OF PATTERN MASKS . These discs are called "gobos" or "cookies" or "templates" or "pattern masks", and are available in hundreds of stock images or can be custom made to include a logo, person's name, etc. See PATTERN MASKS

In the theatre they are commonly used to suggest an environment, such as a projected leaf pattern to suggest an "outdoors" setting. In concerts they are used in motorized Beam Projectors (see Yellow Pages - SPECIAL EFFECTS ) to provide dazzling moving backdrops. In advertising, they work to project a product name or slogan.

Sono apparecchi che servono per proiettare precisamente zone di luce modellata (con contorni netti o morbidi) per effetti localizzati o per proiettare diapositive, lastrini di vetro, gobo (mascherini fotoincisi su acciaio che permettono alla luce di filtrare attraverso la zona fotoincisa, per proiettare varie forme come nuvole, finestre, foglie, ecc.).
