NAB 2012 Tungsten balanced LED Fresnels L itepanels debuted the Inca Series tungsten balanced LED Fresnel fixtures at NAB. The new Inca LED lighting fixtures derive their name from the incandescent lighting fixtures they replace. Inca Fresnels incorporate LEDs that are colour-matched to the incandescent tungsten halogen lighting fixtures still in use in many television stations and teleproduction facilities. The Inca Series makes it possible for a studio to change over from incandescent to LED fixtures in a staged, multi-year plan, rather than having to do so all at once.
