Green Hippo’s London-based manufacturing operation is reporting high demand for its range of Hippotizer media servers and is ramping up production to meet orders.

The team says the first quarter of 2023 saw a huge rise in sales across all Hippotizer models, including the flagship Tierra+ MK2 and high-performance Boreal+ MK2.

The recent launch of the Hippotizer v4.8 software update included major enhancements of the new software including Show Manager, Timeline feature and the SHAPE tool. Built-in integrations were also upgraded, with a notable addition being the NDI update to version 5.5, which includes features to its media over IP protocol.

Zep Mouris, Hippotizer Product Architect at tvONE explained: “The Hippotizer team consistently works hard to implement more and more world-class features in each update and 4.8 is something we’re very proud of. We know Hippotizer users are powering some of the most exciting projects on the planet right now, and 4.8 is feeding into them all. We’re thrilled that the new version has been so warmly welcomed.”

In addition to the boost in sales, Green Hippo is running a limited-time promotion, granting Hippotizer users the opportunity to upgrade to the latest advancements of the Hippotizer software at a discounted price.

Green Hippo’s Hardware Replacement and Software Assurance Program (HRSA), enables end users to future-proof software upgrades and trade-in aging Hippotizer Media Servers for newer models. Available for all Hippotizer Media Servers owners, the Hardware Replacement half of the program enables existing Hippotizer V4 and V4+ owners to trade their systems in for brand-new Hippotizer V4+ MK2 servers at a discounted price.

Frithjof Becker, Director of EMEA Sales at tvONE, commented: “Our R&D team has been working hard to design, implement and release upgrades across the board and we recognise that our users are hungry for the best features on the market. At a time when the AV landscape is advancing so quickly and Hippotizer users are creating the cutting edge of what’s possible, the Hippotizer HRSA Program is there to support you.”

“Our production line is working to meet demand and fulfil orders for our Hippotizer Media Server range as quickly as possible and we thank everyone who’s investing or upgrading,” concluded Becker.
