Hive’s lights are 2X to 8X more energy-efficient than Tungsten and HMI fixtures.
Hive Lights: Built Bright
Hive Lighting makes bright, beautiful, energy efficient Plasma lights for Film, TV, and Digital media production. We’re cleantech meets Hollywood!
How it changes the world
Film, TV, and digital production lighting use huge amounts of electricity, and it’s very expensive to buy or rent. Hive Lighting has invented a line of disruptive plasma production lights that use up to 90 percent less energy, last 30X longer, and provide better light quality — all at a lower upfront cost. Our efficient but high-output lights eliminate or reduce the need for dirty diesel generators, heavy copper cables, and expensive distribution boxes. We save productions money on energy, bulbs, and equipment, without sacrificing light output or quality.
If you win?
We would be able to take the entertainment-industry products we invented and adapt them to fixtures that will work for even larger adjacent markets, such as High Mast (port, highway and airport lighting) and stadium lighting.
Memorable Cleantech Open moment?
We make a retrofit kit for the very lights that were used at the Western Regional finals to light the stage. We could replace the 750-Watt tungsten lights they had with our 276-Watt plasmas. It was funny to be up on stage accepting the finalist award and have a market opportunity literally staring me in the face!
