All Hippotizer V4 systems come from the factory pre-installed with Hippotizer Version 4 software and Compatibility Mode (V3) software. The Hippotizer system contains a license that allows any Hippotizer Version 4 software to be installed. Only Green Hippo Hippotizer Version 4 hardware can operate the entire system and output video.
The Hippotizer V4 system is comprised of two separate pieces of software: The Engine, and Zookeeper.
- The Engine is the core of the Hippotizer system and carries out all video rendering, as well as running all components (such as DMX or Media Manager).
- Zookeeper is the user interface that talks to the engine. Zookeeper talks to the engine over the network and can be run anywhere on the local network to control one or many Hippotizers.
The Engine and Zookeeper are installed from the same installer. You do not need a separate piece of software to install Zookeeper only.

The Hippotizer V4 installer will also install several other pieces of software that are critical with normal operation of Hippotizer systems including the Hippo Launch Application. This program manages Hippotizer V4, Compatibility Mode and SHAPE installations on the system.
|Note: Zookeeper is a free application, to install it.simply run the Hippotizer installer and when the system requests a license key press ok, leaving the license field blank.|
