Green Hippo Launches Hippotizer + Media Server Range and Releases Hippotizer V4.3 Software

Green Hippo reveals Hippotizer + Media Server range, its new product range of Media Servers. The new line comprises the Amba +, Boreal +, Karst +, Montane +, and Taiga +. Building on already incredibly powerful and talented machines, Hippotizer + range brings many user benefits, including the below standout features:

Performance boosts measure at up to 40%. Users can playback additional media layers, deliver more complex 3-D projects, and expect even better Notch performance.

Larger media drives. This is great news for the storage and more accurately the increasing demands of storage, the company says. The Boreal +, Karst +, and Taiga + all enjoy up to double the space on their standard versions.

New back-up and restore system. Time is money -- especially in the rental business -- and the new machines let users create user and password-protected rental back-up image enabling a faster turnaround between gigs.

Same old, same old...brilliant performance. The Hippotizer + range also runs Hippotizer V4 software, ensuring interoperability between the two, and enabling new features.

Green Hippo also announces Hippotizer Version 4.3, the latest version of its award-winning software. Hippotizer V4.3 runs on both Hippotizer and Hippotizer + hardware, and brings many new features to Hippotizer and SHAPE. In addition to vigorous bug squashing, benefits of Hippotizer V4.3 include:

NDI (video over Ethernet) send and receive

Smart improvements to ZooKeeper include a new "tabbed selector" and drag-and-drop pin board creation and editing

"Notes and Tags" -- tag media with key words such as "Blue" or "Strobe" and then search for it by those tags in the media select

Enhanced UI for SHAPE, with grouping of objects, Nulls, parenting and bulk editing

Controllers in SHAPE let users move objects in real time, in 3-D

GPU Selection enables even better PLAY and PREP performance in SHAPE
