The black Bee 50-C PAR Spot Omni-Color LED Light from Hive is a versatile 1.5 lb LED light source that measures just 5" in length and 4" in diameter making it a great choice for tight spaces with minimal support requirements. The light has a 22-degree PAR spot reflector that makes it an ideal choice for selective lighting or for long throw work. The beam can be further modified by the included 4-way barndoors.

Control is the key word in the construction of the 50-C. Hive uses Perfect S.H.O.T. controls, a propietary term for complete control and adjustment of every aspect of light output. Part of the success of the system is due to the use of 5-LED chip blending. Instead of the traditional three colors, Hive uses red, amber, lime, cyan, and sapphire for nearly infinite color combinations with a high CRI/TLCI rating of 98 and 97. Color can be adjusted from a very warm amber 1650K to an icy blue 8000K. But control doesn't stop there. There's 360-degree hue adjustment around the color wheel, as well as 0 to 100% saturation control. The 50-C can also be dimmed from 0 to 100%. While these adjustments can be made manually, you can also make them remotely via your smartphone or onboard wired or wireless DMX. Thanks to its 100 to 240 VAC power supply, the 50-C is ready for worldwide use; but it will also run on optional 12, 14.4, or 14.8V batteries (60Wh or higher) when mains power is unavailable

Perfect S.H.O.T. Controls
The 50-C has 0-100% saturation adjustment, 360° hue control, output control from 0-100%, and color temperature control from 1650 to 8000K for nearly infinite combinations for precise color balance.
Color Blending
The 50-C uses red, amber, lime, cyan and sapphire LEDs instead of the traditional 3 color system to achieve a high CRI/TLCI of 98/97 to render colors faithfully with no output loss or color degradation.
Low Power Draw, Battery or AC Power
The Bee 50-C uses just 40W to produce light output comparable to a 300W incandescent. Its 5" length and multiple mounting points allow for easy rigging to cameras, drones, practicals, stages, and sets. The 50-C can run off a battery or universal wall power.
Control
The 50-C's functions can be controlled manually (locally) or remotely via your smartphone or DMX.
Small and Lightweight
The 50-C is 5" long and weighs just 1.5 lb.
