Jon Miller here from Hive Lighting. So first just want to say we were very grateful to be included in the test, and we rarely comment on these tests as they are completely independent and for better or worse we want everyone to judge our products without undo influence from us.
But we are surprised by the results here, having said that I think the test sort of misses the point of what we hope we created with the 100-C. We aren't just a "white light" LED. The point of the 100-C is that there is no single white light setting. With the ability to fine tune every part of the color spectrum, you don't ever need to have any kind of distinct spike in yellow, or blue etc. In fact you can adjust the color temp and add points of blue or yellow, red or green etc. as you see fit both to your eye, your camera and your meter. The point is you have total control to correct to any skin tone and camera sensor. If you turned on your light and your camera and your light, found yourself getting this specific result and disliked it, a couple dial spins later and you can have totally different output.
As for the output level, we assume it was either dimmed, or through some lens and diffusion combination as that is completely different from our photometrics, both in house and independently tested.
We do have independently verified test results from Light Lab in Anaheim California we will put up on our website and Kickstarter.
Again we still think this was a cool test, we are glad to have been a part of it, and really appreciate the time and effort of NFS, Timur and everyone who worked on this, it just might not have been the best test for what our light does well

Hi my name is Jon Miller I am one of the owners here at Hive Lighting and I was sent a link to your comment. First I want to say we take the safety of our product and the safety of our customers very seriously.
The scenario you are describing does not match with any of the scientific testing or or research we have done on this product or on plasma technology in general. First I would like to assure everyone that we do a wide variety of testing on all of our equipment, including RF and EMI emissions and they are shielded systems. Also the symptoms you are describing have never been attributed to RF or EMI and sound more like radiation sickness which cannot possibly be associated with our product. In fact there was any leaking of RF energy at any high level it would prevent the light from functioning at all. Having said that we do not take such rumors lightly.
I want to be clear we have never heard any reports like this from any customer, any dealer, any production, rental house or user ever before. We have never had any experience like this in our rentals or manufacturing where we have had plasma lights on daily for over five years. We would like to know more about the experience you are describing. Can you please let us know the rental house you rented these lights from, the dates of the production and if at all possible any of the crew who were effected? Please call us directly 310 773 4362 or email us at email@example.com or email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
