Hive Lighting to Launch Two New Omni-Color C-Series Lights at NAB 2018

Hive Lighting will introduce two additions to their Omni-Color LED product lines: the Bee 50-C and the Hornet 200-C at NAB.

Hive said these new lights offer 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 Perfect SHOT color controls, giving the user the ability to adjust the saturation, hue, output and color temperature of the fixtures.

The lights allow for infinite color combinations and complete lighting customization. The Bee 50-C and the Hornet 200-C have 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.

The Bee 50-C is a 40 watt Omni-Color LED. Weighing 1.5 pounds and measuring five-inches long, it is brighter than a 300 watt incandescent source. Housing multiple 1⁄4-20 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 150 watt Omni-Color LED. Weighing 2.6 pounds and measuring nine inches long, it is brighter than a 1000 watt incandescent source. 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 compatible with a wide variety of classic light modifiers from “soft boxes” for video production.
