Brompton Technology announced its new Tessera v3.2 software with ShutterSync for users of Tessera SX40 and S8 LED processors. In addition, it has added the option to upload a custom 3D LUT directly to the Tessera LED processor.
Tessera v3.2 is designed for creatives using LED on camera for both virtual production and XR (eXtended Reality) applications, giving professional users more flexibility than ever before with convenient features that put the emphasis on creative choice and control.
ShutterSync is a patent-pending processing feature that automatically adjusts the timing of the LED refresh to match the preferred camera setup. It can optionally be used in conjunction with Frame Remapping, which allows the user to interleave different areas of the video raster or solid colors in the output enabling multi-camera systems, and transforming the workflow for virtual production.
ShutterSync is compatible with all LED panels fitted with a Tessera R2 receiver card and works best with panels supporting HFR (High Frame Rates). Brompton says ShutterSync does not affect network pixel capacity and works with genlock for a perfectly synced system.
Tessera v3.2 also offers power users greater control over the color of an LED screen with the ability to import a 3D LUT. 3D LUTs (Look Up Tables) are an efficient way of remapping colors and allow for advanced color correction. They are commonly used in film production, for everything from on-set camera tuning to color grading in post. The Tessera software can import and use any valid Adobe .cube file, using 12-bit precision and tetrahedral interpolation.
ShutterSync and 3D LUT import are available as free software upgrades to users of Tessera SX40 and S8 processors. Tessera v3.2 software is currently available for beta testing from the Brompton website.
