Demonstrations will be accompanied by presentations from key personnel in the company's product management, projects and sales teams. These include a V4 range introductory overview, a demonstration of the award-winning SHAPE 3D projection mapping tool, a run through V4's next generation media control features - including visualiser, spout sources, mixes and output mapping, and with V4 supporting 4K+ resolutions, a look at 4K in the real world. Other new features discussed include Output Manager, STRATA Caddy System, and output options including HD-SDI.

The new Hippotizer hardware range includes the powerhouse Taiga with 8* inputs / six outputs, the tour-proof Boreal with eight* inputs / four outputs, the customisable Karst with two inputs / three outputs and the compact Amba with two inputs / one output.

In addition to showcasing Hippotizer V4, the Open House will also introduce Green Hippo's multi award-winning AViary Video Tools, and demonstrate how other complementary technologies together provide versatile system solutions to suit a range of applications and project budgets.
