Brompton Technology’s new Tessera G1 receiver card has scooped up its second award, this time the coveted InfoComm Best of Show award. The win follows on from the G1’s Product of the Year award at NAB Show in April.
The breakthrough G1 is making waves in the industry as the most powerful receiver card ever designed for an LED panel – 20x more powerful than the current industry-leading Tessera R2+ – and the first-ever receiver card to support 10Gb fibre Ethernet connections direct to the panel.
The G1 is capable of delivering a staggering one-million-pixel capacity for a new generation of ultra-fine pixel pitch panels, but is also capable of driving panels at refresh rates up to 1,000 frames per second. Brompton CEO, Richard Mead, comments, “This goes well beyond today’s requirements, but is a deliberate strategy anticipating the needs of the future. It gives us a platform for the increasingly complex software and algorithms required to optimise visual performance on LED and creates the opportunity for innovation.”
Brompton’s new, patent-pending TrueLight technology is one example of what the G1 receiver card has to offer. Thanks to the power of the G1, TrueLight can bring major advantages in situations where panels are used as a lighting source, such as within an in-camera visual effects LED volume.
A problem encountered with RGB panels in these situations is that their spectral output has poor colour rendition, leading to colour shifts and unnatural skin tones. While adding extra emitters helps, it’s the power of the G1 behind TrueLight that makes the RGB to RGBW conversion work, as Mead explains: “The G1 has the processing power to run the mathematically intensive algorithms required for TrueLight, which are roughly 60 times more complex than traditional RGB per-pixel calibration.”
With its ability to transform how LED panels are used as a lighting source, TrueLight is an exciting first introduction to what the G1 can offer. More information on the amazing capabilities of the G1 can be found here: https://www.bromptontech.com/product/receiver-cards/
