Eclipse Staging Services purchase two V4 Taiga media servers

UAE – Eclipse Staging Services has purchased two Green Hippo Hippotizer V4 Taiga media servers to add to its video inventory.

Simon Harris, Green Hippos user experience/training manager went out to Dubai at the end of September to provide the busy video crew at Eclipse with three days of Hippotizer media server training. The Eclipse video team was in the middle of supplying and setting up full technical production for Dubai Music Week, so it was convenient for them to be able to have training at their video warehouse.

“I thoroughly enjoyed training the video team from eclipse. They took to Hippotizer V4 like ducks to water and to see the product quickly exceed their high expectations was an absolute pleasure. Eclipse have a very talented team of technicians and I can't wait to read about the projects they use their systems on in the near future,” commented Simon Harris, head of training at Green Hippo.

Head of video for Eclipse, Lee Worthington, commented: “I’m very happy we’ve taken this step further towards innovative video and projection solutions. Having these servers in our inventory makes projects simpler and faster to set up and it also means that virtually any project is completely transportable.”

Not long after the training sessions Eclipse took one of their new V4 Taiga’s out for its first job, The Infinity Car Launch for Q80 Inspiration and Q60 Concept models.

The V4 Taiga was used to drive 517 Panels of 3.9mm LED creating a screen 23.5MTR x 5.5MTR screen with overall pixel count of 6016 x 1408, providing a stunning backdrop for the luxury brand's launch.

“The Hippo came into its own on this project as the Taiga’s high quality hardware paired with the flexibility of the output manager to send a large pixel count to several LED processors, all from the one unit made managing a large screen much easier compared to other smaller servers.”

“We’re excited to see how these new media servers can broaden our capabilities in our coming projects and in turn allow us to continually supply a top notch industry-leading service,” concluded Worthington.
