Hive Wasp 1000 Plasma Par Kit is a very bright and versatile light source. It is safe to use light on a standard U.S. 15amp circuit, requiring only 9.5amps.  Two Wasp 1000 units can be plugged into a 120V 20 Amp circuit.  The Wasp 1000 has a full spectrum 98 CRI with daylight color temperature of 5600K. The Wasp 1000 offers electronic dimming control from full output down to 50%. Like all Hive Lighting products, the Wasp 1000 is completely flicker-free at any frame rate, shutter angle or combination, making it the perfect light for all slow-motion high-speed production.

Hive Lighting's Wasp 1000 pairs a single-point source 1000W plasma bulb with a mirror coated parabolic reflector (PAR) to create a tight powerful beam, perfect for high output, long throw applications as well as being used with diffusion, soft boxes, bounce cards and reflectors. The Wasp 1000 has comparable output to 1,800 watt and 2,500 watt HMI lights or up to 10,000 watts of Tungsten. At fifty feet away, the Wasp 1000 provides an F16 at spot and an F4/5.6 at flood for a camera with an 800 ISO.

The Wasp 1000 weighs only 21.5 lbs. in the head, and uses standard 13.5" accessories.  The Wasp 1000 has a dual baby receiver / junior pin and can be used on stands with a 16mm (5/8") baby pin or a 28.5mm (1 1/8") junior receiver.

About Hive Plasma

Plasma combines the daylight balance and high output of HMIs with the energy efficiency, reliability and durability of LEDs, but exceeds both in color 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.

These lights produce far less heat than HMIs and Tungsten bulbs. They do get warm, but according to Hive you can touch them without gloves and move them around while they are on.

They also produce no sound. Hive plasma lights are silent due to solid state electronics.

Please also note that Hive Plasma can be used with chroma blue or green screens.
