The U.K. company has expanded into the U.S. to meet the growing demand for virtual-production setups.
U.K. company Brompton Technology, which produces LED video processors for virtual production, broadcast and live events, is expanding into the United States with a new office in Burbank, Calif.
The new facility, located at 2805 Empire Ave., will help Brompton meet the growing demand for high-end VP setups in film and television. Brompton’s Tessera LED processors, with software features including Frame Remapping, ShutterSync and 3D LUT, deliver LED images for in-camera VFX and more.
The Burbank office will be staffed by (pictured above, from left) Regional Technical Manager Sean Sheridan, Technical Projects Specialist Dan Warner and Technical Support Specialist Howard Chang.
Sheridan joined Brompton in 2018 and has played an instrumental role in expanding its customer base in the U.S. market. He is also helping to drive development of new Tessera software features specifically geared toward VP. Chang has an extensive background as a live-events technician, and Warner brings previous experience in the camera department for film and television. Together they provide hands-on service, support and training to Brompton’s partners and customers utilizing LED across the live-events, broadcast and film/TV-production sectors.
“So many of our customers are based in Los Angeles that it made sense to establish a permanent home here, where we can give them unparalleled support,” says Sheridan. “Howard and Dan will be enormous assets as we continue to grow and as live events and production continue to ramp up. Our doors are open!”
“I’m thrilled to expand our international presence, as Brompton now has footprints in North America, Europe and Asia,” says Brompton CEO Richard Mead. “Sean has led the charge for us to have a permanent home amid the film and TV industry. We’re looking forward to working closely with our partners and customers on the ground.”
