Brompton Technology Tessera G1: Red, Green, Blue, Whatever

Cescar Caceres, Product Lead at Brompton Technology, looks to the future of LED processing, following the release of the world’s first receiver card capable of delivering 1 million pixels, RGBW and 1,000 frames per second.

Brompton Technology’s release of Tessera G1 is set to disrupt the LED industry. As the first receiver card to support 10Gb fibre connections direct to the panel,  Tessera G1 is also capable of supporting a staggering one-million-pixel capacity for a new generation of ultra-fine pixel pitch panels, or up to 1,000 fps (frames per second) to get the fastest esports experience or to enable slow-motion in-camera visual effects without artefacts. This is made possible by a 20x increase in computing power compared to its Tessera R2+ receiver card.

This innovation marks a major advance in the company’s mission to push the boundaries of what is possible with LED video processing technology. With the G1 receiver card, users can expect an increased level of realistic visual performance. “Video is evolving in many different ways, one of the things we discovered amid the COVID-19 lockdown was that virtual production became really important. By putting a camera in front of LED panels, we could find a lot of less than ideal artefacts happening,” Brompton Technology Product Lead, Cesar Caceres explained. “By fixing this, we have improved processes incredibly and that is now helping other industries like live events greatly – providing even better quality video, dynamic ranges, and more.”
