After launching the Wasp 100-C last year at NAB, Hive Lighting Inc. returns to Las Vegas with two additions to their Omni-Color LED product lines: the Bee 50-C and the Hornet 200-C. These new additions effectively “goldilocks” the previous Wasp 100-C, creating Hive’s “C-Series” of Omni-Color LEDs, offering unparalleled color control and versatility in a full-spectrum, color-changing point source LED.
Both the Bee 50-C and the Hornet 200-C have the same groundbreaking Perfect SHOT color controls offered on the Wasp 100-C. These controls give the user the ability to adjust the Saturation, Hue, Output, and color Temperature of the lights, allowing for infinite color combinations and complete lighting customization, so you can create the perfect shot every time. The Bee 50-C and the Hornet 200-C also retain the unique form factor of the Wasp 100-C, including an adjustable yoke design and a 100mm body diameter.
This diameter allows these lights to be combined with hundreds of existing photo accessories from various manufacturers including ProFoto®, Chimera®, Elinchrome® and Westcott® to name just a few.
The Bee 50-C is a 40W Omni-Color LED. Weighing in at just 1.5lbs and measuring 5” ( 125mm) long, it is brighter than a 300W incandescent source. Housing multiple ¼-20 threaded mounting points, this allows for easy rigging to cameras, drones, stages, built sets, and practical locations. The small form factor, low power draw, and competitive pricing makes this light the most versatile and cost effective color changing light source for travel and location production.
The Hornet 200-C is a 150W Omni-Color LED. Weighing in at just 2.6lbs and measuring 9” (225mm) long, it is brighter than a 1000W incandescent source. With 2.5x the output of the original Wasp 100-C, this is the brightest single point source color changing LED on the market. Among other accessories, Hive Lighting offers a Par Reflector and Adjustable Fresnel for the Hornet 200-C, both fully compatible with a wide variety of classic light modifiers from “soft boxes” for video production, to “beauty dishes” for photographic applications. The Hornet 200-C offers a light source that is bright enough to be used for both still and moving image production, while taking full advantage of any photographer’s existing equipment.
Hive Lighting’s new Omni-Color C-Series lights offer a leap forward in efficiency and versatility for entertainment lighting, bringing the revolution in color controllable lights to single shadow point source LEDs.
