The integration between the Hippotizer+ Media Server range and Notch is the main focus here on the Green Hippo stand, enabling guests to experience solutions for real-time media playback and 3D mapping. With powerful real-time rendering and visualisation, Notch has been designed to be the ultimate creative tool, allowing users to experiment and improvise on the fly.
Green Hippo has commissioned a short dance piece with the London based Tavaziva dance company, which showcases the real-time possibilities of the integration between their media servers and Notch.
As for the Hippotizer+ range itself, the company is presenting the full extent of their product range. This varies from Amba+, a single-unit compact server, right through to its flagship Montane+ unit.
We were also given a demo of the new version of Hippotozer software – V4.4 Beta. New features within the software update include frame-based workflow, in addition to the existing time-based workflow. We also have the ability to use a feature called “inner-loop”, which enables the user to seamlessly loop a particuar section within a video clip, without interruption to the output. Users are now able to crossfade on layers, as well as pre-sets, meaning they can fade from one geometric or colour preset to another. Lastly, we have keying now available on specific layers, as well as the ability to video map individual layers of content.
Hippotozer V4.4 Beta is available for download immediately after Prolight + Sound 2018.
