Creative Technology Asia Pacific uses Brompton LED video processing

As one of the world’s premier providers of equipment rental and production services, Creative Technology (CT), part of the NEP Group, supports its clients around the world with 32 offices in 17 countries.

In line with the company’s goal is to always deliver bigger, better and more exciting results than expected to its thousands of customers, CT APAC has recently added Tessera S8 LED processors to its existing Brompton Technology inventory.

These have already been deployed on two high profile, internationally broadcast esports events hosted by Riot Games, bringing the most advanced processing power and unrivalled image reproduction to their LED video setup.

“Brompton Technology has always been highly thought of in the industry, and with in-camera productions growing rapidly in the last couple of years, it made complete sense to capitalise on the opportunity and invest in Tessera LED processors, says Juay Minghee, Operations Director at CT Singapore.

“Brompton’s presence in the APAC region and the company’s pro-active engagement with our team in Singapore has already been beneficial.

“Brompton’s industry-renowned 24/7 customer support also gave us confidence in our investment. We know there will always be someone from Brompton’s team available to answer our questions should we need their support.”

Perfect for high-profile projects that do not require large output capacity, CT chose Tessera S8 LED processors for the flexibility of Brompton’s industry-leading Tessera feature set and easy-to-use software.

Powering ROE Visual’s DM2, 2.6mm pixel pitch LED panels, the Tessera S8 deliver exceptional contrast, brightness, and ultra-realistic visual experience.

“For League of Legends: Mid-Season Invitational in Busan, South Korea, we deployed a system that uses over 300 ROE Visual DM2.6 panels together with three Tessera S8s in various configurations such as nine sets of window-like design, each measuring 1m wide by 2.5m high, and a breakout design overhanging the players and measuring approximately 8m wide by 4m high, Minghee explains.

CT then immediately shipped both screen and processors to Singapore for another Riot Games event, the first-ever Wild Rift Icons Global Championship.

Originally planned to be hosted in Madrid, the event was moved to the Singapore’s Suntec Convention and Exhibition centre due to the Covid-related complications.

Here, a giant customised LED wall comprising three rectangular screens, with wings each measuring 6m wide by 3m high and a player walk in LED at 9m x 4mH made up of ROE Visual DM2.6 panels and powered by Tessera S8 LED processors, took up key positions around the set.

“We are extremely grateful to Concom Inc, technical producers of Riot Games, for trusting CT to deliver both MSI and Wild Rift Icons,”says Minghee.

“Both events were a huge success and were watched by millions of viewers across the globe. To pull off such incredible productions wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the CT APAC team, our local partners, and freelancers.

“I’ve worked with CT in the UK, US and Australia over the years and seen their dedication to delivering client projects,” adds Luke Hurford, Regional Technical Manager – APAC at Brompton Technology. 

“It has been exciting to work with CT Singapore as they’ve successfully deployed their Brompton processing on these high-profile events across APAC.”

“Using Tessera S8 LED processors gave us complete peace of mind in terms of colour control and the ability to deliver a top notch in-camera visual performance, which were the key objectives for both events,” Minghee concludes. 

“We are very pleased with our investment in Brompton; the processors have been a breeze to work with, and we look forward to using them on many more projects.”
