The Bumble Bee 25-C uses LED omni-color technology. By using a combination of primary, secondary and tertiary colored LEDs (Red, Amber, Lime, Cyan, and Sapphire) Hive LEDs create a more complete and even spectrum than traditional RGBW. A proprietary algorithm combines the 5 different colors into brilliant white-balanced light and millions of saturated color combinations. While traditional color changing LEDs use 3 base colors or 2 “white” LEDs, Hive’s Bumble Bee 25-C has far higher color quality and far greater control than BiColor or RGB LEDs.
