Hive Lighting Wasp 1000 Plasma Par Light with Remote Ballast (120V Ballast)
Hive’s Wasp 1000 is the brightest light you can plug into any wall socket. It is safe to use on a standard U.S. 15amp circuit, requiring only 9.5amps.

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 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.

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.
