Brompton S4 Processor


S4 is the workhorse of the range - perfect for large, high resolution screens.
Value-optimised, S4 sacrifices creative features while retaining Tessera's class-leading quality and control.


DVI-D 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.

4 x 1G Tessera output ports

Each 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.
Full HD 1920x1080 standard canvas
Optional non-standard canvas sizes: 1600x1200, 2880x720, 720x2880, 1080x1920


Free placement of fixtures anywhere in the canvas
Free rotation of fixtures to 0˚, 90˚, 180˚ or 270˚
Multiple fixture types per project
Nominal 2.1 million 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.

​Fixtures smaller than 16px in either dimension have additional processing overhead and therefore result in reduced capacity.
Up to 2000 fixtures per project


Lock to source
Genlock from source to the LED refresh


2 frames end-to-end system latency with all features enabled
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.
5 x status LEDs and power LED on front
Illuminated freeze and Blackout buttons on front


Tessera Control app via management network ports
1 x Gigabit Ethernet management network port, also used for remote management (see above). Neutrik EtherCON connector, compatible with standard RJ45.
