Plasma combines the daylight balance and high output of HMIs with
the energy efficiency, reliability and durability of LEDs, but
exceeds both in colour rendering and spectrum. Plasma emitters
use a single point-source bulb, with no electrodes or filaments.
Instead, the quartz bulb is filled with a blend of noble gases
and metal salts to make an inert gas. When this gas is excited
it shifts its state of matter from gas to plasma, which results
in an incredibly powerful light source. All Hive plasma lights
save energy without compromising light output or colour quality.
BEE 250 - an "open-face"-style
Hive Lighting’s Bee Plasma Flood is Hive’s first “open
face”- style lighting solution using only 276 watts but
producing virtually no heat in the beam.
Using a single unique plasma bulb, a micro-star, the Bee's proprietary
reflector system focuses on the centre 50 degrees before tapering
to an 100 degree flood providing a flood light that can throw
to long distances with a sharp, single shadow.
Fitting four-point and eight-point softboxes, photo umbrellas,
and a traditional glass Fresnel lens, makes it a tool for both
motion and still image production.
Weighing around 4kgs, it is both easily transportable and simple
to set up and breakdown on-the-go.
Adjustable colour temperature between 4,600K and 6,500K CCT (plus
moonlight VFX) and easily powered with 90-300VAC or 18-38VDC BEE
250 provides a flicker free, 30,000 hour bulb life, vibration
and impact resistance, and is capable of producing output twice
as bright as LEDs, four times brighter than fluorescents and five
times brighter than incandescents, all from a single point source
