FROM PARIS WITH LOVE Dark Matters’ studio in France offers end-to-end solutions, from Simulcam and in-camera VFX technology to motion capture

ready LED processing. To support these two core sectors, and to apply the company’s technology to new markets, Brompton secured a £5.1m growth capital investment from specialist private client alternative investments business, Connection Capital. As part of its growth trajectory, Brompton recently moved into a new UK HQ in south-west London that includes upgraded demonstration and training areas, allowing customers to better experience the company’s latest offerings. It also has outposts in Shenzhen, Taipei and LA, and a mainland Europe office in Belgium. Brompton now has a 50-strong team and delivers product to over 100 countries. Its LED processing solutions are trusted on tours for some of the world’s biggest artists, most recently Metallica’s The Return Of The European Summer Vacation tour and Ed Sheeran’s Mathematics tour; on film and TV productions such as Westworld , House

Early adopters of LED screens for film didn’t have a smooth ride. LED screens that weren’t designed with on-camera use in mind sometimes turned out to be unsuitable, and the wrong LED solution, or wrong pairing of screen and camera, would cause more problems than it solved. Brompton responded with a wealth of tailored features combined with rock-solid reliability, and worked hard to ensure LED screens became a collaborative partner in the creative process. “This is an ongoing process of working with users to understand the pain points, then developing features in our Tessera software, or integrating with complementary technologies to create streamlined virtual production workflows,” says Mead. With the return of live events, and virtual production still going strong, there’s a rapid increase in demand for Brompton’s cutting-edge tour and virtual production-

of the Dragon and Star Trek: Discovery ; gaming tournaments like the latest League of Legends: Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) and the first Wild Rift Icons Global Championship; and in renowned virtual production and XR studios globally. “We have a passionate and skilled team, a global network of partners and customers who put their trust in Brompton solutions,” concludes Mead. “Our industry-leading Tessera video processing technology, diversified revenue streams, soaring demand for our products, and ambitious plans make us very excited about the future of Brompton Technology.”
