As one of the most highly anticipated international content business-related exhibitions for professionals in the audio, video, and communication industry, this year’s Inter BEE is set to host an extraordinary gathering of cutting-edge innovations from Japan and around the world. A significant highlight will be the presence of leading global LED processor manufacturer, Brompton Technology, featured on the stands of partners including Ark Ventures Inc., AOTO Electronics, Sony Marketing Inc., Ikegami, d&b audiotechnik, and Restar Communications Corporation. Notably, the team from Ark Ventures will introduce Brompton’s cutting-edge TrueLight technology for the very first time in Asia, adding an exciting new dimension to this year’s showcase.
As well as TrueLight, which enables full per-pixel calibration and control of the light spectrum emitted by an LED panel with a broader spectral output by utilising extra emitters in addition to the standard RGB format, Brompton’s partners will also present other leading Tessera features, such as Frame Remapping, that are utilised by some of the world’s most renowned broadcast studios.

Our focus will be on catering to VP studios and immersive spaces, allowing us to demonstrate our expertise as cutting-edge technology system integrators,” says Shinya Tanigawa, COO at Ark Ventures. “Our booth design is divided into three areas and will incorporate TrueLight technology assets,” adds Tanigawa. “We’re also planning to host daily presentations on TrueLight throughout the show between November 15th and 17th.”
The panels that will demonstrate the power of TrueLight technology at the Ark Ventures booth are the ROE Visual CB5 Mark II, all driven by Brompton’s 4K Tessera SX40 in conjunction with Tessera XD 10G data distribution units, as well as Tessera S8 LED processors. Additionally, the panels have been calibrated with Brompton’s Hydra advanced measurement system to enable a suite of useful features via Dynamic Calibration technology, making them Brompton HDR-ready.
