NAB '12: What's New with Hive Lighting

Last year, Hive Lighting showed us a prototype of their plasma light technology. Now Hive has debuted a lineup of production fixtures: a fresnel, par, sealed par pair, and even a retrofit kit for ellipsoidal fixtures.

Plasma lights use a tiny glass bulb filled with gas. When that gas is bombarded with microwaves, the gas changes state to a plasma and in the process emits an enormous amount of photons. The resulting light is daylight balanced, very high CRI and flicker free. It is also about twice as bright as a similar wattage HMI. Watch the video to see my interview with Jonathan Miller, co-founder of Hive Lighting and learn more about this unique new technology.

I'm here with Jonathan Miller at the Hive Lighting booth today to talk about Hive's new line of plasma lights, the Plasma 1000s. Plasma, or energy-efficient arc lighting, combines the lower power draws associated with technologies like LED with the throw and punch associated with single point source HMI PAR and flood fixtures.
