FLEXIBILITY FOR BEAUTIFUL MID-RANGE PROJECTS

Brompton Technology’s Tessera S8 LED processor is perfect for high-profile projects that don’t require large output capacity but would still benefit from the flexibility of Brompton’s industry-leading Tessera feature set and easy-to-use software.

Sitting alongside the award-winning Tessera SX40, this mid-range LED processor provides stunning results with support for all of Brompton’s ground-breaking Tessera processing features, including HDR and Dynamic Calibration, as well as Ultra Low Latency and High Frame Rates.

It offers full 4K60 input support, with eight 1G outputs each capable of 525K pixels at 60Hz, 8 bits per colour, and has a zero-latency up/down scaler that matches the source to the screen.

The Tessera S8 allows for full HD output with closed loop redundancy, making it the obvious choice for rental companies looking to maximise their offering for those more cost-conscious events.

Tessera S8 LED Processor
POWERFUL TESSERA FEATURE SET
HDR

High Dynamic Range offers greater brightness and colour ranges with a higher bit depth, appearing perceptibly sharper and more detailed for vivid, lifelike images.

HDR
Dark Magic

Improves the appearance of panels operating at less than their maximum brightness by reducing banding and increasing detail in dark areas.

Dark Magic
OSCA

On-Screen Colour Adjustment (OSCA) enables a special user interface to appear on the LED screen itself, allowing for quick, easy module and seam selection.

OSCA
ChromaTune

Offers powerful and intuitive colour correction with two operating modes – 14 Way Colour Corrector and Colour Replace. Easily and independently adjust primary, secondary and tertiary colours.

ChromaTune
Tessera Software

Tessera Management Software gives you full control over your Tessera System, with an array of powerful, easy-to-use features for an impeccable show every time.

Tessera Management Software
Genlock

The Tessera system is genlocked from the video input all the way down to the LED refresh cycle, giving perfectly smooth video with no dropped or doubled frames.

Redundancy

Delivers ultimate peace of mind for users by introducing an auto-failover mechanism that allows a back-up processor to take over in just a few seconds.

Redundancy
Ultra Low Latency & High Frame Rate
ULTRA LOW LATENCY AND HIGH FRAME RATE

The Tessera S8 LED processor already has an industry-leading 2 frames end-to-end latency. Now ultra low latency reduces this to just 1 frame, making it easier to synchronise live action with visual effects, virtual sets and cameras.

High Frame Rate gives you the power to play video content on an LED screen at up to 144 fps (frames per second). It offers significantly smoother motion, reduced motion artefacts in fast moving content, and reduces input lag – enabling content to be displayed on screen faster than ever before.

custom fixture control

It’s easy to get a show up and running with the Tessera S8, with several powerful features for configuring your fixtures:

Quick Association, a fast and easy way to associate large numbers of fixtures to your processor

Pixel Mapping, allowing free placement and rotation of fixtures to 0˚ / 90˚ / 180˚ / 270˚ regardless of cabling order

Sub-fixture support

Main Project Screen Live Control
Closed loop redundancy
closed loop redundancy

The Tessera S8 processor delivers peace of mind for users with the ability to operate a full HD output with closed loop redundancy.

Cabling loops are created from the primary port, through a string of fixtures, and then back to the processor.

In case of unexpected signal loss or errors with the loop or primary feed, the backup port takes control and within one frame switches to the backup feed, ensuring a worry-free live show.

“The great thing about the Brompton software is that it’s very adjustable to your needs; there is a plethora of options to make your screen look exactly the way you want it to. Brompton provides a lot of hotkeys, which really helps with quick actions during shows or rehearsals and means we don’t have to mouse-click through everything…
Maarten Deschact – PRG
… Their products are well thought out, and they always listen to our technicians’ thoughts about certain aspects of what they do, from setting everything up to troubleshooting. Working with Brompton makes our lives very easy every day.”
