HippoSchool Goes North!

Unparalleled power and flexibility built into a custom, tour ready case. A host of customisable output and capture options mean that the Hippotizer Karst can fit into many different roles. Featuring a total of 3 outputs, as well as dual control monitors, the Hippotizer Karst can drive the most demanding shows with ease. At only 2 rack units high, the Hippotizer Karst packs two DVI outputs into a very small space while the third DisplayPort 1.2 connection offers the ability to drive very large resolution screens with just a single cable.

Software Assurance Policy

With the release of Hippotizer V4.1, Green Hippo introduced their Software Assurance Policy.

Existing V4 customers (prior to the release of V4.1) - are entitled to software updates free of charge, until March 13th, 2019.

New customers (from the release of V4.1 onwards) - will receive three years of software updates from the date of their Hippotizer system purchase.

Extensions to this policy can be purchased nearer to the expiry date. Pricing for this will be based on machine type and duration of extension.

After the Software Assurance Policy period expires, customers will be able to install and run all versions of V4 software released up to the end date. However, any versions released after the expiry date will not install.
Customers' Hippotizer V4 system will continue to operate normally with no software limitations.
