Following a highly successful 2018 show, Brompton Technology will return to Amsterdam for Integrated Systems Europe 2019, from the 5th - 8th February. This year, stand 12-C105 will see us showcase the new Tessera Processor Software 2.2.0 for the 4K SX40 processor, to deliver an enhanced feature set that follows the easy-to-use style of its intuitive user interface.
The SX40 is Brompton Technology’s highest-ever capacity processor and offers support for full 4K screens at 60Hz with 12 bits per colour output, a zero-latency up/down scaler that matches the source to the screen, plus all of Tessera’s industry-leading processing features such as ChromaTune colour correction, On Screen Colour Adjustment (OSCA), and more.
Used in combination with the Tessera XD distribution unit, which is a sophisticated single box solution designed to manage the complications of mass cabling that can arise with large LED display systems, the SX40 provides a cost-effective yet powerful system that will support the biggest, brightest and boldest LED projects.
By updating the SX40 to the latest 2.2.0 software, users can now access a suite of handy new features such as Panel On Screen Display (OSD), Processor Redundancy, 90 degree rotation and Chinese language support in the user interface.
The new Panel OSD provides detailed status information right on your panels, enabling sections to be quickly cycled through to access Panel Information, Module Information, Ethernet Information, Video Status, Calibration Information, I/O Status, Temperature plots and Error plots, giving engineers a quick and easy way of identifying issues on any part of the screen.
Processor Redundancy delivers ultimate peace of mind for users by introducing an auto-failover mechanism. If, for any reason, a problem occurs with the video input or output on a primary processor, it can be configured such that a back-up processor takes over in just a few seconds, enabling the show to go on. This feature can be used with or without closed loop redundancy, an additional safety mechanism which protects against any cabling faults that may occur.
90 degree rotation
90 degree rotation does exactly what it says, with fixtures now able to be rotated in increments of 90 degrees.
Chinese language support
Finally, the SX40 along with all of Brompton Technology’s processors, now includes Chinese language support, which can be accessed via the Language section of the Preferences menu.
Both the software and any required firmware updates can be installed in a matter of minutes, with technicians informed of progress every step of the way.
“Our aim has always been to develop industry-leading products that are of real benefit to our users,” says Brompton’s Business Development Manager, Rob Fowler. “By designing our hardware to be a platform for ongoing software development, we engineered in the capacity to expand functionality right at the very start and, by listening to the technicians who use Brompton processors on a daily basis, we are able to develop new features that truly address what the market wants and needs.
This means that our products not only expand with changing requirements, but have an extended lifespan which delivers great return on investment. As with all our developments, this latest software release is a direct result of that ethos.”
Members of the Brompton team will be demonstrating the new Tessera processor software 2.2.0 on our stand throughout the show.
