The £5.1M in funding will help the LED video wall processing solution company rapidly scale up to meet growing demand across both the virtual production and live event industries it services.
Brompton Technology has secured a £5.1M capital investment from Connection Capital that will enable the company to rapidly scale up to meet growing demand for its Tessera video processing system for LED walls used in everything from virtual production and virtual studios to live events and world tours. The investment grants Connection Capital a minority stake in the company.
“We are seeing unprecedented growth in demand for our cutting-edge, robust, tour and virtual production-ready LED video processing products from our core industry sectors, as well as a lot of exciting potential for our technology to be applied to new markets,” explained Richard Mead, Brompton Technology CEO. “Whilst our focus on quality and dedication to customer service will remain the same, Connection Capital’s investment gives us the ability to scale up rapidly to meet demand and address the new opportunities that are presenting themselves.”
“Brompton Technology is an excellent example of a successful business that pivoted, almost overnight, into virtual production for film and TV during the pandemic and is now emerging even stronger than before,” commented Connection Capital partner Miles Otway. “With its industry-leading technology, diversified revenue streams, talented management team, and soaring demand for its products, Brompton Technology has a very compelling growth story that has really appealed to our private investor clients.”
Alongside Connection Capital’s investment, Neil Gaydon, an experienced non-executive chairman, will join Brompton’s board. Gaydon has a track record of delivering growth in technology companies, including as CEO of Pace plc from 2006-2011, during which time Pace became a leading provider of digital TV technologies to the Pay TV industry.
“We are fortunate to be in a leadership position in a rapidly growing market,” added Mead. “This investment will enable us to capitalize on growth opportunities and deliver outstanding visual experiences to more and more people worldwide. We are excited to start a new phase of our journey with support from Connection Capital.”
