Brompton Technology has announced its new Tessera v3.2 software with ShutterSync, a tool 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 for the very first time.
Tessera v3.2 is ideal 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.
“Until now, filming an LED screen required the camera’s shutter speed to be precisely matched to the LED screen refresh to prevent ugly artefacts appearing,” explained Brompton CTO, Chris Deighton. “With ShutterSync, LED refresh can be tuned to the camera, not the other way around, giving creative control back to the user.”
ShutterSync is an industry-first, 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 colours 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). ShutterSync does not affect network pixel capacity and works with genlock for a perfectly synced system.
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.
