Hive Releases Plasma Lighting Fixtures for Media Production

Hive Lighting, manufacturer of lighting fixtures, has introduced the Plasma light technology for media production purposes. The plasma emitters, unlike LEDs, Tungstens, and hydrargyrum medium-arc iodide (HMI) lamps, generate daylight-balanced, full-spectrum light. They are silent, flicker-free, and produce very less amount of heat.

The plasma lights were developed by Robert Rutherford, an energy consultant and Jon Edward Miller, Director of Photography. Edward Miller stated that the daylight balanced lights feature good color quality and suits the demanding requirements of the location and studio shoots.

The company’s lighting fixtures last for 10,000 hours and are more efficient than Tungsten and HMI equivalents. The Hive Hornet180 Fresnel lamp, manufactured by the company, uses an 180W lamp and delivers more light than 1000W tungsten fresnels and 400W HMIs. The lights are compatible with lighting accessories and do not require fresnel lenses, barn doors, and scrims. They can also be controlled through a wireless iPhone application or laptop. The company is presently retrofitting 2 and 1K tungsten fresnel heads with the Plasma lights.
