At the Bench: Hive Lighting BEE Plasma Flood


During this year's NAB show, Jon Miller of Hive Lighting stopped by our booth to tell me about the new BEE light, and he recently brought it by the LA office to give us a closer look.

The BEE is a flood light that uses Hive's proven plasma technology. The benefits of plasma lighting include high output, low power consumption and low heat. One the most interesting features of this light is the Daylight Dial, which allows a fully tunable color temperature from 4600K - 7000K, as well as the ability to shift to a deep blue moonlight.

The BEE ships with several power supply options, and one power supply can power multiple BEE units. This makes the fixture great for traveling and run'n'gun type situations.

Watch my video above to learn even more about the new BEE from Hive Lighting and to see some of the demo footage Jon and I shot using the Phantom Flex4K.
