A.C. Video Unleashes First UK Batch of HippoCritters

18th November 2008

A.C. Video, a division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (formerly known as A.C. Lighting Ltd.), has started shipping the first batch of Green Hippo HippoCritter production units to customers in the UK.

Lee House, the division's Business Development Manager, placed an order for the first 5 units at the PLASA show after receiving a wealth of enquiries from his demonstrations on the stand of the approved UK distributor.

The HippoCritters have all been sold and are now shipping to various event companies, lighting rental companies, and end users as this version of the media server is so affordable.

Hippotizer Media Servers have long been recognised as one of the world's best solutions for real-time video playback on events worldwide. From theatre to Rock 'n' Roll via television, you'll never be far from a Hippotizer. The new HippoCritter is a small form-factor media server for those looking for high-grade playback at a fraction of the cost. The HippoCritter is ideal for a wide range of permanent and temporary installations. Also, it is great when used as a remote node, minimising the need for video cable distribution. Featuring Artnet out as well, it is ideal when used with DMX fixtures as a pixelmapper, and benefits from the same functionality that users have come to expect with Green Hippo media server products.

James Heron, Sales & Marketing Director of Green Hippo, commented: "These Hippotizer sales demonstrate that the changes to our distribution strategy were the right move. Lee House of A.C. Video has been hot-footing it up and down the country with our new products and generating a lot of interest. These first HippoCritter sales are a testament to the very hands on and personalised service "A.C." provides. A.C. Entertainment Technologies as a whole have taken great efforts to make Convergence a reality, not a buzzword, and we welcome the opportunity to work with them in the years to come."
