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.
Hive’s theatrical/studio product line takes the benefits
of Hive’s single unique Plasma bulb and combines it with
a full-dimming and colour-changing optical wheel. The high output,
high CRI, full-spectrum daylight Hive pioneered for on-location

The Honeybee is fully DMX-controllable allowing for programmable
looks, complete CMY colour adjustments and dimming remotely.
The 30,000 hour (recommended) bulb replacement and the extremely
efficient 300 fixtures Watts, with very low heat, makes Hive’s
Honeybee the perfect solution for broadcast studios, live events,
and permanent installations like museums, domes, atria and theme
