  • The 4K Tessera SX40 LED processor combines our industry-leading feature set and easy-to-use software interface with our highest-ever capacity processor.
    Available in a standard 2U rack form with a total output capacity of 9 million pixels, the SX40 offers support for full 4K LED walls at up to 60Hz, 12-bit colour depth. It supports latency-free 4K up/down scaling to match the source to the screen, as well as all of the industry-leading Tessera processing features.
    These features include HDR and Dynamic Calibration, as well as Extended Bit Depth, Ultra Low Latency, HFR+(High Frame Rate), Frame Remapping, ShutterSync® and 3D LUT Import. The SX40 also supports On-Screen Colour Adjustment (OSCA) for seam corrections; Dark Magic for dark-area detail, and ChromaTune for colour control. Additionally, Stacking can be used to control multiple SX40 processors as one.
    Used in combination with the Tessera XD Distribution unit, the SX40 provides a cost-effective and powerful system for supporting the biggest and boldest LED projects.
    There are several powerful, flexible options for configuring fixtures within the 4K standard canvas such as:
    • Quick Association for a fast and easy way to associate large numbers of fixtures to a Brompton processor
    • Pixel mapping that allows free placement and rotation of fixtures to 0˚ / 90˚ / 180˚ / 270˚ regardless of cabling order
    • Sub-fixture support
    The SX40 also supports Processor Redundancy. If 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,  and can be used with or without closed loop redundancy. 

    The Tessera XD data distribution unit is a sophisticated single box solution designed to manage the complications of mass cabling that can arise with large LED display systems.
    Trunk connections between Tessera SX40 and XD, or between XD units, use a 10G Ethernetbased backbone to reduce the number of homerun connections required. For maximum cabling convenience, each 10G trunk connection supports up to ten independent 1G connections to fixtures, each having the same pixel capacity as a 1G Tessera output, subject to system capacity. For more information see the XD Data Distribution Data Sheet.

    Extended Bit Depth unlocks higher PWM bit depth output for all panels using the Brompton R2 or R2+ receiver card. Up to 3.3 additional bits of precision improves low-brightness performance - reducing visual artefacts and bringing out additional detail and nuance in dark areas of the image. This substantial increase in dynamic range is invaluable when reproducing HDR content or working with LED on camera.

    HFR+ gives you the power to play video content on an LED screen at up to 250 fps (frames per
    second). This gives smoother visuals in eSports and simulator applications using high-frame rate
    content. It also makes it possible to shoot slow motion visual effects with over-cranked cameras
    against LED screens and still retain perfect synchronisation between screen and camera.

    The Tessera SX40 processor automatically detects and handles HDR content, accepting HDR video at up to 12 bits per colour. The system switches seamlessly between SDR, PQ and HLG with no interruptions. HDR is beautifully supported at all resolutions and frame rates, in both of the commonly used HDR formats (PQ (ST-2084) and HLG).
    All Tessera SX40 processor features are available for HDR content, ensuring a fully optimised, exceptional performance. HDR is exclusive to R2-based panels that have been calibrated with Dynamic Calibration.

    Unusual shows have unusual content. With the Tessera SX40 you can build a screen of almost any size and dimension and be sure that your content plays beautifully on it.
    For complete flexibility and creative control, the Tessera SX40 processor accepts custom input  resolutions.

    Redundancy delivers ultimate peace of mind for users by introducing an auto-failover mechanism that allows a back-up processor to take over in just a few seconds.
    Tessera LED processors can be fed from the same or independent video sources, with different formats,  resolutions, and/or frame rates.
    There's no requirement for any aspect of the sources to match - redundancy will ensure a near-seamless  show even in the event of a power or cable failure.
