Brompton Technology’s recently initiated training programme is designed for anyone interested in learning more about the extensive capabilities of the company’s Tessera LED processing for its T1, S4, M2 and SX40 LED processors and the XD data distribution units. Free to technicians working in the LED screen sector, they are already proving highly popular, with 18 attendees going through the Brompton doors since the first session on 15th November 2018.
Held at Brompton’s HQ in Ealing, London, the sessions take attendees through the fundamentals of operating its state-of-the-art LED processors, familiarising them with the easy-to-use interface and giving them hands on experience with handy features such as ChromaTune colour correction, On Screen Colour Adjustment (OSCA), Dark Magic for colour smoothing in low brightness conditions, Fixture Processing and Genlock.
Attendees will also get first-hand experience of the new Tessera Processor Software 2.2.0 for the 4K SX40 processor which delivers an enhanced feature set including Panel On Screen Display (OSD), Processor Redundancy, 90 degree rotation and Chinese language support in the user interface.
“Our processors are incredibly easy to get to grips with,” says Brompton’s Technical Support Manager, Adam Callaway. “In fact, anyone can be up and running in a matter of minutes. They are also very powerful and, with our 2.2.0 software we have introduced significant new features that give even more control of the screen to the user, so as well as going through the basics, our training sessions provide technicians with additional knowledge and some handy tips and shortcuts to make life even easier.”
“Because Brompton processors can do so much, it’s easy to think they’ll be complicated,” says Neil Waller (LED Operations Manager) from Creative Technology London who attended one of the sessions in December. “It really does only take a very short amount of time to understand how to use them, but getting a more in-depth view has made me realise just how many advantages the system has; from the quick and easy way the screen can be addressed to Dark Magic, which allows you to enhance the quality of an image even at lower brightness levels, to Panel OSD, a function I know I’m going to find really useful, which makes it incredibly easy to identify issues on any part of the screen just by looking at information displayed on the panels themselves.”
