Hive Lighting

Hive Lighting continued to proudly exhibit its high quality line of plasma based lighting fixtures.  Known for outstanding light output from low power consumption, the Hive Lighting fixtures are extremely efficient and deserve serious consideration.

Barbizon NAB 2016 - Hive-WaspOne such light that is particularly impressive is the WASP 1000 Plasma Par/Kit.  With its 12” parabolic reflector, 4 HDP Lens Set and 1,000W plasma bulb,  the WASP cranks out a ton of light.  That is to say, equivalent to a 10,000W tungsten or a 2,500W HMI at a cost ~40% less to buy and 50% to operate, all with a small 9.5 amp draw.  Claimed to be the highest quality artificial daylight ever produced, with a 98 CRI, you can understand why there is plenty of excitement surrounding this light.  It is 100% flicker free, as are all of the Hive Lighting products, which makes it ideal for high frame rate imaging.  Being a single point source bulb it produces a single shadow, not a multi-shadow nightmare that can often occur with other technologies.  The plasma bulb for the WASP has an expected life of 50,000 hours and has adjustable color temperature between 4,600K and 6,500K.  Get ready to compete with the sun.
