FOR BIG, BOLD & BETTER PROJECTS

The 4K Tessera SX40 LED processor combines our industry-leading feature set and easy-to-use software interface with our highest-ever capacity processor.

Tessera SX40 offers support for full 4K screens at 60Hz with 12 bits per colour output. It supports a zero-latency up/down scaler that matches the source to the screen as well as all of Tessera’s industry-leading processing features like ChromaTune colour correction, On-Screen Colour Adjustment (OSCA), and more.

It is compatible with all existing Tessera fixture inventory.

Used in combination with our Tessera XD data distribution unit, the Tessera SX40 provides a cost-effective and powerful processing system for supporting the biggest and boldest LED projects.

SX40
POWERFUL TESSERA FEATURE SET
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
Management 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.

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.

Genlock
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
XD and Tessera SX40
tessera xd distribution unit

The Tessera XD 10G data distribution unit works seamlessly with the Tessera SX40 LED processor to deliver a flexible, sophisticated single box solution designed specifically to easily and cost-effectively support the biggest LED projects.

The Tessera SX40 processor and Tessera XD data distribution unit support both copper and single mode optical fibre trunk connections, and the Tessera XD can be used to convert between the two media.

Trunk connections between a Tessera SX40 and Tessera XD, or between Tessera XD units, use a 10G Ethernet-based backbone to reduce the number of home-run connections required.

custom input resolutions

Unusual shows have unusual content. With the Tessera SX40 you can build a screen of almost any size and dimension and be sure that your content plays beautifully on it.

For complete flexibility and creative control, the Tessera SX40 processor accepts custom input resolutions.

redundancy

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.

Tessera LED processors can be fed from the same or independent video sources, with different formats, resolutions, and/or frame rates.

There’s no requirement for any aspect of the sources to match – redundancy will ensure a near-seamless show even in the event of a power or cable failure.

“The Brompton SX40 processor is by far the most advanced and user-friendly LED control hardware & software on the market – it’s an LED tech’s dream to operate. The auto detection of panel quantity and type per string is very helpful, while the fantastic XDs really aid with cable management and cabling options…
Alex Strachan – iMAG Displays
… The engineers and designers have really thought of everything you would want in a 2U bit of kit. We often use it in high pressure, tight timescale environments, and the SX40 is a pleasure to work with, never letting us down.”
