AC-ET is On a Roll with Hippotizer Open Days

4th October 2010

Following on from the first Hippotizer open day by A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd.’s Video division, the exclusive UK & Ireland distributor for Green Hippo products is pleased to announce a further rollout of regional open days commencing from later this year. Dates will be confirmed shortly.

Held in conjunction with Green Hippo at AC-ET’s Northern sales office in Leeds, technical staff from both companies were on hand to demonstrate the full functionality of the Hippotizer, which has long been recognised as one of the leading media servers in the industry.

New for 2010, the V3 software continues to add an impressive selection of components including UberPan, VideoMapper, TextEngine, LiveMask and 3D Show Pre-visualisation.

UberPan is a unique multi-server screen management component that allows multiple Hippotizers to work together and create a single virtual canvas. Once configured, the 'herd' of Hippotizers are seen as one single server, allowing easy realtime control and live manipulation from Green Hippo’s ZooKeeper control centre.

VideoMapper allows users to position their screen elements randomly as they wish. They can even rotate sections at any angle or break screen sections apart. It takes minutes to design and once done, Hippotizer will automatically distort any standard media so it appears correct on randomly positioned pieces.

Other new features include a built-in TextEngine for importing existing documents or making them ‘on the fly’, LiveMask for drawing multi point shapes and then using them directly inside a layer as a mask, and 3D Show Pre-visualisation – enabling a whole show with lights and video to be pre-programmed before hitting site.

The open day also showcased other new products in A.C. Video’s extensive portfolio of leading brands, including the innovative Pufferfish PufferSphere high impact display system featuring a 360° spherical viewing window and the Christie Projection lineup including the latest in the popular M-Series range.
