Green Hippo announces its partnership with Msonic. With immediate effect Msonic will distribute Green Hippo’s line of cutting-edge scenic video technology throughout the Republic of Finland.

Founded in 2012 in Vantaa – Finland’s fourth largest city and part of the Finnish Capital Region along with Helsinki, Espoo, and Kauniainen – Msonic specialises in the importing and distribution of premium professional AV and lighting products. Since launch, the company has achieved significant growth, becoming the Finnish distributor for a number of leading brands, and further increasing its influence in the Finnish pro sector. This expansion was recently reflected in the opening of Msonic’s new head office and warehouse. Still based in Vantaa the new premises bring further square footage, including, no doubt, plenty of space for Green Hippo Hippotizer Media Servers.

In Green Hippo, Msonic gains access to an award-winning line of powerful media servers, made all the mightier by Hippotizer Software. Now in Version 4.3, Hippotizer offers a supreme level of control, including seamless integration with the likes of Notch and Martin Professional’s P3-PC System Controller. Used and admired across the world, Hippotizer Media Servers have recently delivered thrilling real-time video playback for front-page live events, including: the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show; the European premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi; and the Eurovision Song Contest.


I have been aware of the growth of Msonic’s business activities over a number of years and for us, the recent move to their new offices and some changes in the structure of the Finnish market that has meant Johan West can join the team was just too good an opportunity to let go. Bringing together such a fine commercial operation with Msonic, one of the world’s real experts on Hippotizer Media Servers in Johan and our global market-leading brand means that we now have an unbeatable position in the Finnish market.

James Roth, Head of Sales and Marketing at Green Hippo


Green Hippo is rightfully recognised as the pro sector’s leading media-server brand, and this partnership marks a significant milestone for MSonic. The Hippotizer hardware and software is spot-on, and we can’t fault the support on offer from the Green Hippo personnel. Frankly, we can’t wait to take this line to the Finnish market.

Kari Vanhalakka, Managing Director of MSonic
