Green Hippo Hippotizer Grasshopper – Media Server Rack


SKU: VID0421 Categories: ,


The Hippotizer GrassHopper

If your project needs a single output of full HD in a robust but compact rackmount form then meet the Hippotizer GrassHopper.
This latest addition to the Green Hippo range brings a wealth of possibilities to any show whilst ensuring you don’t compromise quality when meeting the budget.

GrassHopper shares all the software features of its close relative the Hippotizer HD. Its unrestricted output resolution allows you to drive a single HD display or lets you get the best from output extenders such as Datapath x4 Matrox multi-head adapters, or the EMSiVU4.

Use it as a stand-alone player, with Video/RegionMapper or make it work hard as part of an UberPan rig to provide the flexibility, ease of use and array of configuration options you’ve come to expect from any member of the Hippotizer family.
