Formed in 2000, Green Hippo has grown from a specialist manufacturer of bespoke solutions to one of the leading players in the ever growing field of scenic video. The company’s award winning Hippotizer™ range is now in its fourth generation and can be found providing real-time video playback for television sets including Eurovision, The Academy Awards, the Super Bowl halftime shows. Theatre spectaculars such as Love Never Dies in the West End and American Idiot on Broadway utilise the system due to its flexibility during production periods and concert tours for artists such as Beyonce, Jay Z, and Madonna have proven its reliability out on the road.
As a result of the boom in video as an integral part of all high profile events from opening ceremonies to corporate shows, Hippotizer™ media servers now reside in the inventory of most of the major rental companies worldwide alongside an ever growing set of owner operators worldwide.
With the advent of AViary Video Tools, we have taken this wealth of experience and developed a range of devices that bring a unique, high-grade and ultra-flexible way of working to a host of applications. We understand that users need to change and tune the way that video and imagery is displayed right up to the 11th hour. We also understand that display frameworks for parameters such as aspect ratio, screen positioning, rotation and so on have moved on since the days of a single 16:9 screen. Users want to be creative without limitations and mix and match displays at will. To this end we have built into every AViary product the ability to take video playback and output mapping to new levels without compromising usability and quality. Based in London and Glendale, CA Green Hippo provides innovative solutions and support to users, distributors and installers worldwide.
