Green Hippo is proud to announce the release of Hippotizer version 4.1; a software update adding features and enhancements for all Hippotizer Version 4 Media servers.

Hippotizer Version 4 is an industry leading 2D and 3D media server in use worldwide on live events and performances such as the 2016 Super Bowl Half-Time show and Academy awards ceremony. Software version 4.1 adds key new features such as Pixelmapping, as well as a host of improvements throughout the software.

PIXELMAPPER V4 - An all new Pixelmapping engine makes Hippotizer Version 4 an un-paralleled tool for mapping video to DMX lighting fixtures. Supporting hundreds of universes of Art-Net3, sACN and KiNet fixtures as well as myriad colour systems such as RGB, RGBAW, CMY; V4's Pixelmapper is a powerful new component for Hippotizer V4 users.

MIDI, TCP, OSC among other protocols are managed through this single component. 4.1 adds native support for devices such as Lightware and Blackmagic Matrices and automation protocols such as Kineysis.

MEDIA MANAGER - Easy encoding and management of media has always been a strength for Hippotizer; 4.1 improves this further with enhancements to the FlexRes codecs, and many new features throughout the media manager component. Thanks to new plugins for PC based AfterEffects and Nuke, content can now be created directly in the FlexRes codec of choice.

DMX AND CITP - Controlling the Hippotizer V4 from a lighting desk has been made even easier with added support for sACN in the DMX component and an overhaul of CITP. Thumbnail and streaming previews is available through CITP with many popular lighting desk and 3rd party visualisers such as GrandMA 2 and Capture Argo.

SHAPE - The 3rd dimension of Hippotizer, SHAPE is an easy to use projection mapping toolset that makes Hippotizer V4 at home on the most complex 3D projects at the press of a button. 4.1 adds many new features to SHAPE, chief among then is multiple inputs for on-the-fly mapping of mixes to objects.
