Green Hippo Unveils Hippotizer v4.8 Software Update for its Range of Media Servers

Green Hippo UpdateGreen Hippo has unveiled a Hippotizer v4.8 software update for its range of Media Servers, adding a range of new and upgraded features designed to power up real-time media manipulation, playback and mapping.

One enhancement is Show Manager, facilitating complete control of multiple productions and installations at once. It allows users to easily save and load various shows on one Hippotizer Media Server, simplifying show management and switching between events. Within this, shows can be duplicated to enable quick modifications without affecting the primary show data, and each show can be easily labeled for one-glance referencing. For productions run by multiple users of one machine, shows can be locked to protect them from any unwanted edits, and HippoLauncher can now be controlled by TCP Commands, allowing for start-up or switch into the designed show. Also upgraded is TimelinePlus, where pre-recorded looks can be easily transferred onto the Preset Timeline for quick, easy show programming.

The Hippotizer SHAPE tool introduces Dockable Windows, aiding customizable workspace management and enhancing 3D project visibility. Another notable feature upgrade is the NDI update to version 5.5, which includes features to its media over IP protocol, allowing for more creative freedom connecting any device with any location.

Hippotizer 4.8.0 is available for download now from the Green Hippo website here.
