Brompton Tessera SX40 4K LED Video Processor

The Brompton Technology Tessera SX40 LED processor integrates Tessera’s cutting-edge feature set and user-friendly software interface with its most powerful processor to date. When paired with the Tessera XD Distribution unit, the SX40 forms a robust system ideal for driving even the largest and most ambitious LED projects.

Within the 4K standard canvas, users have access to a multitude of potent and adaptable options for configuring fixtures:
– Quick Association streamlines the linking of numerous fixtures to a Brompton processor, ensuring swift and effortless setup.
– Pixel mapping allows for the flexible placement and rotation of fixtures (0˚ / 90˚ / 180˚ / 270˚) regardless of cabling order.
– Sub-fixture support enables precise fine-tuning of displays with unparalleled detail.

The SX40 boasts Processor Redundancy capabilities, seamlessly transitioning to a backup processor within seconds in the event of a video input or output issue on the primary processor, with the option for closed-loop redundancy.

Presented in a standard 2U rack form, the SX40 offers an impressive total output capacity of 9 million pixels, supporting full 4K LED walls at up to 60Hz with 12-bit color depth. It facilitates latency-free 4K up/down scaling, aligning the source with the screen, and encompasses a comprehensive suite of industry-leading Tessera processing features.

These features include HDR and Dynamic Calibration, along with Extended Bit Depth, Ultra Low Latency, HFR+ (High Frame Rate), Frame Remapping, ShutterSync®, and 3D LUT Import. Additionally, the SX40 supports On-Screen Color Adjustment (OSCA) for seam corrections, Dark Magic for enhanced dark-area detail, and ChromaTune for precise color control. Furthermore, Stacking functionality enables centralized control of multiple SX40 processors as a unified entity.
