Brompton Tessera XD Distribution Unit

LED Processing, Immersive, Uncategorized

Trunk connections from a Tessera XD unit use a 10G Ethernet-based backbone to reduce the number of required home-run connections to the processor.

The Tessera XD uses a proprietary multiplexing algorithm, built on top of standard 10G Ethernet, to ensure that tight timing constraints are met and all fixtures remain perfectly in sync.

To keep cabling as simple and affordable as possible, each 10G trunk supports up to ten independent 1G connections, compatible with off-the-shelf switches if you need to further split the signals.

The Tessera XD 10G data distribution unit works seamlessly with the Tessera SX40 LED processor to deliver a flexible, sophisticated single box solution designed specifically to easily and cost-effectively support the biggest LED projects.

The Tessera SX40 processor and Tessera XD data distribution unit support both copper and single mode optical fibre trunk connections, and the Tessera XD can be used to convert between the two media.

Trunk connections between a Tessera SX40 and Tessera XD, or between Tessera XD units, use a 10G Ethernet-based backbone to reduce the number of home-run connections required.




Tessera XD units are sturdy, gig-ready pieces of kit that can be easily truss mounted.

Tessera XD units are compatible with single mode fibre cables up to 2km in length. This allows for simpler, cleaner cabling, regardless of venue size or processor location; e.g. several XDs mounted close to the LED panel wall, connected by one cable to an LED processor that’s running from the front of house or gallery.

Additional Tessera XD units can be daisy-chained together to extend the signal, allowing many different screens in different locations to all be connected to a single 10G trunk.
