Tessera T1 LED Processor


T1 is ideal for small creative shows requiring maximum flexibility over fixture layout and input processing while not requiring a large number of output pixels.
Perfect for shows using coarse pitch panels and strips/tiles.

DMX512, Art-Net and sACN control of many control parameters, including real-time control of fixture group position, rotation and colour

Status and Power Indicators

2 x Fans with Replaceable Filters

2 x USB2.0





DMX In + Thru


Local User Interface

Auto-Ranging Mains Input

Front & Back


Tech Specs


with reclocked thru port

Up to 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz (148.5MHz pixel clock).

Support for RGB and YCbCr colour spaces.


HDMI support with suitable adapter. No HDCP support.


1 x 1G Tessera output port


Supports a nominal 525K pixels at 8 bits per colour, 60Hz frame rate.

10 and 12 bits per colour output is supported at reduced pixel counts.

Pixel count may be reduced for certain fixture types.

Neutrik EtherCON connectors, compatible with standard RJ45.


All processing at 12 bits per colour channel (36 bits per pixel)

Per-input proc-amp style colour controls with histogram preview

Controls include hue, saturation, brightness, contrast and individual red, green and blue shadow and highlight.


Single processing pipeline featuring clipping and up-/down-scaling, with clean switching between settings

Processing pipeline is disabled when operating in low latency mode, or when non-standard canvas resolutions are enabled.

Full HD 1920x1080 standard canvas


Optional non-standard canvas sizes: 1600x1200, 2880x720, 720x2880, 1080x1920

Use of non-standard canvas sizes disables some front-end processing, see above.


Free placement of fixtures anywhere in the canvas

Free rotation of fixtures to any angle

Multiple fixture types per project

Automatic interpolation of different pixel pitches to make content appear at the same physical size across all fixtures

Interpolation can be disabled for 1:1 output on all fixture types. The content appears at normal size on the finest pixel pitch fixtures, and is scaled to match on those with coarser pixel pitches.

Nominal 525000 pixel capacity

Nominal capacity at 60Hz frame rate and 8 bits per colour output. Capacity increases proportionally for lower frame rates and decreases proportionally for 10 or 12 bits per colour output.

Rotation of some fixture types may result in reduced capacity. Fixtures smaller than 16px in either dimension have additional processing overhead and therefore result in reduced capacity.

Up to 500 fixtures per project


Lock to source or an internal timing reference

The frame rate of the internal reference can be set by the user.

Frame rates from 23.98 to 60Hz are supported.

The processor automatically locks to the video input when in low latency mode, or using non-standard canvas sizes.

Genlock from source to the LED refresh


3 frames end-to-end system latency with all features enabled

2 frames end-to-end system latency in low-latency mode

Some front-end processing and genlock features are disabled in low latency mode.

When using legacy fixture types with constant current driver ICs, the end-to-end latency is one frame less.

Latency is measured in multiples of the frame rate period of the genlock source.


Local management using monitor, keyboard and mouse

DP++ monitor output supports DVI, HDMI and VGA using a suitable adapter. Monitors from 1280x1024 up to 1920x1080 are supported.

2 x USB2.0 on front and 2 x USB 2.0 on rear for keyboard and mouse. Can also be used for USB memory sticks for firmware reload and project backup.

Remote management from Tessera Remote on Windows PC or Mac OS X via management network ports

1 x Gigabit Ethernet management network port, also used for live control (see below). Neutrik EtherCON connector, compatible with standard RJ45.

7 x status LEDs and power LED on front


DMX-512A on 5-pin XLR in and thru

eDMX (Art-Net and sACN) and Tessera Control app via management network ports

2 x Gigabit Ethernet management network ports connected internally as a switch. Also used for remote management (see above). Neutrik EtherCON connectors, compatible with standard RJ45.
