Green Hippo implements hardware revisions
19 May 2010
Green Hippo is shipping all Hippotizer HDs with hardware revisions based around Intel’s i7 processors.
The revisions harness the processors power and work in conjunction with version 3.0.14’s new software Playback Engine from the London based company. The i7-based servers are faster and allow for more video playback layers. Previous machines ran between two to five layers depending on the specification and the age of the unit whilst the new i7 based units are capable of eight layers of full HD playback simultaneously.
Other features in Hippotizer 3.0.14 software include support for EMS’ iVu4 2x2 video wall controllers allowing two of these devices to be driven by the outputs of a Hippotizer HD providing eight screen feeds of 1024 x 768 each. Used in conjunction with the latest VideoMapper plugin, the machines can freely place and rotate any of the outputs within the playback canvas and hence gives tremendous freedom to design and deliver new staging concepts with reduced hardware costs.
From May 1st all Hippotizer HD machines began shiping with i7 processors and for those customers that already own a Hippotizer HD V3 an upgrade path will be offered. Green Hippo is also offering a global trade-in offer for older machines, to benefit customers with V2 units.
