By: Hive Lighting | September 2, 2014
At the 2014 IBC Show in Amsterdam and the 2014 Cinec Show in Munich, Hive Lighting will showcase their latest innovation in plasma production lighting: the new Wasp Plasma Par light with the tunable Daylight Dial. Hive will exhibit this new high-output, energy-efficient plasma lighting solution from September 12-16, 2014 at the Dedo Weigert Film GmbH Booth #11.E31 Hall 11 at IBC in Amsterdam and September 21-23, 2014 at the Dedo Weigert Film GmbH 3-D10 at Cinec.
Wasp Plasma Par
The Wasp Plasma Par is possibly the most versatile light source that can be plugged into the wall anywhere in the world. The Wasp has a tight, powerful 10 degree beam that can do the work of smaller HMIs on set, but when combined into arrays, or "Killers", the Wasp becomes the brightest fixture that can be plugged into a wall.
The 6-light Killer is the equivalent of a 4000W HMI running off of a single wall socket. But capable of being run on 240V its possible plug in as many as 12 of these lights at once. The Wasp also can be combined with a variety of accessories, including lenses and soft-boxes but most uniquely the barrel of an ETC source 4 can be placed directly on the front of the fixture, just like barndoors to create a daylight "leko" spot. Taking merely seconds on set, no bulb changes or building required.
Retailing for $2,495 USD, the Wasp Plasma Par is the most cost-effective, low-power, and high-output lamp on the market, providing all the benefits of Hive®s plasma technology to an even wider marketplace.
