Ottawa, Canada, February 14, 2022 – Ross Video irreversibly changed the world of graphics rendering in 2017 with the launch of XPression Tessera, a product developed specifically to enable sports and entertainment venues to drive pre-rendered and real-time rendered graphics on any resolution LED display at limitless pixel resolutions. Now, Ross is excited to announce the release of XPression Tessera One – a new all-in-one solution that provides over six million broadcast-quality pixels to drive engaging content to venue LED displays and video walls in news studios.
Building on the impressive success of XPression Tessera, Tessera One is a complete LED content management system that features customizable XPression graphic templates and DashBoard Control Panels, which offer a simple and intuitive control interface that anyone can use. For sporting events, customers can either choose to create their own graphics or take advantage of Tessera One's library of pre-built and customizable graphics templates for baseball, basketball, football, hockey, and soccer. Either way, Tessera One helps customers produce dynamic, data-driven content that will engage fans and generate new revenue through enhanced sponsorship opportunities.
Tessera One is a simple, compact, affordable and powerful system. Its slimline 1RU chassis delivers up to three 1080P HD outputs, which can be mapped to fill over six million LED pixels. It also utilizes low-latency video input processing of three frames latency. This means that a video input signal passed through Tessera One with graphics composited over it will not distract the fans in the stands. What they see on-screen will appear at the same time as it does on the playing surface or stage.
"XPression Tessera has helped open up new levels of creativity thanks to its ability to render graphics on the largest and most extraordinary LED displays," comments Patrick Twomey, Director of Graphics Product Management. "Tessera One makes that job even easier, and by offering even greater value, Ross is opening the powerful world of Tessera up to a whole new group of customers."
From showing live event video with scoring to driving ribbon boards to additional fan engagement auxiliary displays , Tessera One delivers the same feature set as a traditional Tessera system in an all-in-one cost effective solution. And to complete your Ross Venue Control experience, Tessera One also provides licensing for XPression INcoder and DataLinq™. INcoder enables users to import video files using a watch folder-based workflow, and DataLinq™ makes it even easier for less experienced users to display scores or data in real-time.
"Tessera One is the ideal solution for anyone looking for a cost-effective, all-in-one graphics system for their sports venue," notes Kevin Cottam, Vice-President of Sports & Live Events. "Tessera One enables any size venue or studio to take advantage of the power and creative flexibility of Xpression Tessera to engage fans with enhanced story telling tools and increase sponsorship revenue."
