Brompton Technology scoops awards for Dynamic Calibration and Hydra at the Oscars of the AV World: AV Awards 2020

Brompton Technology scoops awards for Dynamic Calibration and Hydra at the Oscars of the AV World: AV Awards 2020 posted: 27/11/2020

New York's GUM Studios - a high-spec virtual environment that includes ROE Visual Black Pearl 2 LED video panels, driven by Brompton 4K Tessera SX40 processors.

Brompton Technology is delighted to announce that its Dynamic Calibration technology and Hydra advanced measurement system have won in both the Support Technology of the Year and Event Technology of the Year categories at one of the most recognised and respected award ceremonies for the audio-visual industry; the AV Awards.

Following the cancellation of the physical ceremony due to the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the AV Awards pivoted to a virtual celebration for its awards gala. The event was live streamed via Swapcard and offered a sparkling evening of entertainment and celebration of the AV world's most significant talent and achievements.

Brompton's Dynamic Calibration is a revolutionary technology for calibrating LED panels that redefines the performance users can expect from their LED screens. It enables LED panels to maintain uniformity while unlocking the full potential of each individual LED, to achieve previously unattainable levels of brightness and colour saturation and deliver Brompton HDR (High Dynamic Range) performance. It is a worthy winner of Event Technology of the Year due to its exceptional performance in numerous stunning virtual studio events worldwide this year, as well as being used in virtual production workflows for many blockbuster film and TV productions alongside virtual productions tools such as Unreal Engine from Epic Games and disguise XR.

Dynamic Calibration is enabled by first measuring LED panels using Bromptons all-in-one Hydra advanced measurement system, which offers fastest-ever calibration times, and the option to reinvigorate existing LED panel stock, making the combination a natural winner for Support Technology of the Year. Hydra complements its calibration capability with beautiful interactive web-based reports in multiple languages. Brompton sold out of its first two production runs of the Hydra, with the measurement systems going to both LED manufacturers and rental houses to ensure their LED panels are capable of giving the best possible performance.

Brompton was also nominated for one of the AV Awards new discretionary categories, Innovation of the Year Award (Technology), which aims to recognise organisations and individuals that have shown impeccable, relevant credentials in their submissions, and to highlight what the AV industry should be aspiring to achieve.

We were honoured to receive an AV award for our Tessera SX40 4K processor at last year's ceremony, and it is fantastic to follow that with two awards in this year's event. This has been a real team effort and I would like to thank everyone at Brompton for their hard work and dedication, and our partners for their continued trust in our LED processing solutions. It is a real boost to morale in what has been a challenging year, says Brompton's Managing Director, Richard Mead. The AV industry is creative and resilient and has looked for ways to adapt to the current situation. With Virtual Production and Extended Reality being used more extensively to facilitate new methods of content production and delivery, the quality of Brompton processing for LED being used on camera has really come to the fore. It is a great honour to see technologies such as Dynamic Calibration and Hydra, both enablers for Brompton HDR, being recognised at such a coveted AV industry event.
