Green Hippo has unveiled a Hippotizer v4.8 software update for its range of Media Servers, packing in an exciting range of new and upgraded features designed to power-up real-time media manipulation, playback and mapping.
A major enhancement is Show Manager, facilitating complete control of multiple productions and installations at once. It allows users to easily save and load various shows on one Hippotizer Media Server, simplifying show management and switching between events. Within this, shows can be duplicated to enable quick modifications without affecting the primary show data, and each show can be easily labelled for one-glance referencing.
For productions run by multiple users of one machine, shows can be locked to protect them from any unwanted edits, and the popular HippoLauncher can now be controlled by TCP Commands allowing to start up or switch into the designed show. Also upgraded is TimelinePlus, where pre-recorded looks can be easily transferred onto the Preset Timeline for quick, easy show programming.
The Hippotizer SHAPE tool introduces Dockable Windows, aiding customisable workspace management and enhancing 3D project visbility.
And the Hippotizer team has upgraded the built-in integration. Notable is the NDI update to version 5.5, which includes game changing features to its media over IP protocol, allowing for more creative freedom connecting any device with any location.
“We’re thrilled to bring the next level of features to Hippotizer, which are all designed to improve workflow and deliver more power to our end users and designers,” says Zep Mouris, Product Manager. “The Hippotizer team consistently works hard to implement more and more world-class features in each update and 4.8.0 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 we hope 4.8.0 can feed into them all. We can’t wait for you to try the new features out!”
