Hippotizer Tierra+ drives visuals for iHeartRadio Music Festival

Music stars including Billie Eilish, Coldplay, Dua Lipa, and Nelly, were at the the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for the iHeartRadio Music Festival - a live production backed by visuals driven exclusively by Hippotizer Tierra+ media servers.

The Hippotizers were supplied by rental company 4Wall Entertainment and looked after by Screens Producer Jason Rudolph of Mobius Productions.

Rudolph selected the Tierra+ model to drive high-impact visual content onto the upstage LED wall, noting the Tierra+ offerings of 4 Native Outputs, 8K playback, unlimited mixes, and 39,816 Notchmarks. Inside, Hippotizer V4+ includes all Solid State Drives as standard and the latest graphics technology to enable producers like Jason to deliver an unmatched performance.

Suitable for live events, the advanced triggering features added to Hippotizer’s MultiController allows programmers to automate their content and media playback to react to numerous triggers, while the new TimelinePlus editor with KeyFrame interface makes it easy to programme hundreds of parameters quickly and efficiently.”

Rudolph and his team had two complete server systems comprised of Tierra+ servers: an ‘A’ and a ‘B’ system, each with backups and two sets of programmers. The team needed this setup this to handle the two sides of the stage and keep up with the sheer volume of acts we have on the show, as well as taking care of all playback for house looks in the venue.

The weekend-long concert was hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
