Boasting all the usual features of Hippotizers award winning software, Rackoon integrates with all other Green Hippo servers seamlessly. A loveable and helpful little beast delivering a level of functionality to belie its diminutive stature.
And theres a reason this little fella has a twinkle in his eye. With an unrestricted output resolution, full HippoNet compatibility and all the software usability of its bigger relatives you can forgive that cheeky look.
Bouncing with feature after feature, Rackoon would be considered pesky were he not so useful. Feed him media and hell reward you with an array of tricks.
Full geometry control and support for integration into almost any setup via a host of native protocols, plus all the renowned Hippotizer tools for video-mapping and multi-server setups means that this little fella is house-trained and ready to perform tricks thatll make you love him.
Built-in timeline functionality and scheduling features make Rackoon a powerful stand-alone playback device too.
PixelMap multiple universes via Ethernet, or even display composite video inputs such as cameras or players on any or all of its six layers. Theres a place in any setup for this little chap.
Rackoon: Earning his stripes daily.
Green Hippo Ltd was formed in 1999 to provide new and innovative solutions for display of media. With backgrounds in Corporate presentation, control systems and the arts, we decided to glue all these diversities together and create something few others had: A professional team capable of combining technical ability with a creative flair. Early systems controlled DVD players via InfraRed since affordable hard drive playback for video was a nonestarter. However we soon progressed to servers displaying linear pieces of video via a touchscreen - hardly inovative by todays standards but at the time we knew we had the fastest and most stable system available and our first product was quickly snapped up by Luminar Leisure for their Liquid nightclub chain and the ball was rolling. But perhaps the biggest step forward came in 2001 when we teamed up with Swiss, Canadian and Siberian partners to develop the worlds first off-the-shelf realtime VJ console and, voila!, The Hippotizer was born. Launched at BAR 2001 the unit soon became recognised as THE realtime video server for the leisure industry. In spring 2003 we were approached by digital content providers Scene Change Ltd to develop a new variant of The Hippotizer. Digital Video Lighting is the biggest innovation in the lighting industry since the moving head and within months, V1 of the Hippotizer DMX range were born. Launched at PLASA 2003, the new DMX variants had dealers and users alike clambering to get their hands on the future of media display. These units are controlled via a lighting desk and use the industry standard DMX protocol for control. Suddenly we were ploughing into unchartered territory as one of the pioneers of this exciting new age of media display. By 2004 we were onto version 2 of the Hippotizer. Not solely for lighting anymore, the units are controllable by all the common industry protocols. Suddenly, with the addition of a seperate control center, dual output on the stage and a whole host of innovative features we were no longer the young upstarts. The system had matured and before long the majority of our systems were finding themselves on broadway shows, A-list Rock n Roll tours and in clubs around the globe. We are flattered to see that the competition now rushes to implement versions of OUR features into their systems! But receiving the Entertainment Design EDDY award for Projection Product of the Year 2005 gives weight to our belief that we make the most complete and useable media servers in the world. But don't take our word for it. Get your hands on one and let us know if we're right! By summer 2005 things were getting really scary with our new higher profile and we looked at ways to improve the way we work. So we implemented the inevitable and merged with Scene Change Under the Green Hippo banner to strengthen and streamline our team. We now have a core group of enthusiatic worker ants ready to take on the challenges that LED and new applications keep throwing our way. We're still only seeing the tip of the iceberg with regards to media servers. Keep checking back to see how the adventure is shaping up.
