A.C. Entertainment Technologies Supplies Hippotizers for Hit BBC Saturday Night Choir Show

4th September 2008

A.C. Video, a division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (formerly known as A.C. Lighting Ltd.), supplied Lighting Designer Mark Kenyon with two Green Hippo Hippotizer media servers to provide LED video control on the recent BBC Saturday night TV hit music talent show, Last Choir Standing.

In the show, choirs from all walks of life went up against each other to find out who had the passion, power and performance necessary to be declared Last Choir Standing. Presenters Nick Knowles and Myleene Klass followed the choirs as they progressed through the contest, joined by a panel of music experts.

Mark decided to invest in two Hippotizers after seeing the media server used on another high profile Saturday night light entertainment show and being impressed by how well it handled slow motion and de-focusing shots. On Last Choir Standing, the units were separately feeding moving image content to a 6mm video wall and around 40 Martin LC Series creative LED panels, to provide a variety of show set visual effects.

Mark came to A.C. Video, a division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. and an approved UK distributor for the Hippotizer, because of the very professional service he'd received over the past few years from A.C. Video Business Development Manager, Lee House, when purchasing other LED lighting and video equipment for shows.

As part of Green Hippo's carefully selected network of distributors worldwide, A.C. Video provides demonstration equipment, is fully trained in operation of the Hippotizer systems, and performs full post-purchase support.

The Hippotizers have already proven themselves on their first show outing, with Mark commenting: "I only recently began using the Hippotizers, but based on their performance on this show I expect to have a full list of Hippo show credits by the end of the year."
