PLASA marked its 40th anniversary with a fantastic show at London Olympia, and Green Hippo took its place at the leading industry event. The event continues to build on its 2016 return to West London, and this year saw ground-breaking technology on show and product launches delivered.

PLASA offers technical workshops and training sessions, as well as networking opportunities, and Green Hippo sent their Sales & Marketing team to present the media server product line.

On A.C.’s Entertainment Technologies stand, the exclusive UK distributor of Green Hippo, there was a space dedicated to Hippotizer demos, featuring a combination of LED and live capture of the crowd, showcasing Hippotizer Montane+, Green Hippo’s latest addition to its line of Hippotizer Media Servers. The new unit joins an awesome line-up of hugely powerful media servers, and this new Hippotizer package includes the likes of Notch, the real-time graphics workhorse. The arrival of Hippotizer Montane+ adds an invaluable new creative weapon to Green Hippo’s award-winning product armoury.

During the show, Green Hippo presented an award to A.C. Entertainment Technologies, highlighting 11 years of fantastic work as exclusive UK distributors.

PLASA also hosts the Knight of Illumination Awards and Green Hippo was proud to sponsor the influential industry event. The Knight of Illumination Awards, which closed PLASA on the Sunday night, was a further opportunity for Green Hippo to strut its stuff. Having identified the one spot where 100% attendee attendance was guaranteed – the bar – Green Hippo projection mapped this key area. Featuring logos and a sword animation – programmed by Lanz Short-Product Specialist, Alexander Zacharakis-Software Tester, and Suzy Stenning-Product Specialist at Green Hippo – the team presented a scenic backdrop for guests on arrival and during the drinks reception.Above: Green Hippo’s projection mapping during the drinks reception at KOI awards

Green Hippo was also delighted to recognise an incredibly talented shortlist for its sponsored award category – Green Hippo’s Television Award for Video Graphic Display – with the trophy going to David Newton for his work on BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing.

PLASA proved to be a terrific event for Green Hippo. The hall was buzzing with creativity and optimism and it was the perfect place to show our new Hippotizer Montane+. The Knight of Illumination Awards wrapped-up a memorable weekend, and we were happy to see our Television Award for Video Graphic Display go to such a worthy winner.
