Green Hippo counts down to 2020


Hunan TV was commissioned to broadcast the countdown to a 2020 live show during New Year’s Eve in China. In order to deliver visuals for over 50 acts and events, Honest AV delivered a video solution for the show, which included Hippotizer media servers from Green Hippo.

‘Two Boreal+ and four Boreal DVDL media servers were used to play the video material; three as the main output and three as hot backup,’ explained Fei Zheng from Honest AV. ‘A further three Boreal+ machines were used on the VJ elements of the show.’

For all three stages on site, both the main Boreal+ and Boreal DVDL servers outputted 21 signals to all the LED screens. ‘The Ndimensions designers [who developed the video content] used the real-time rendering function of Hippotizer to simplify the time and cost of content production, using PREP to programme in the early stages to improve work efficiency,’ Zheng added. ‘Before the performance, all content fed into the Hippotizer software was rendered and outputted through the After Effects component of FlexRes. Using this tool can greatly improve the efficiency of uploading materials onsite and protect copyright more effectively for designers. For us and for the production team, every function of Hippotizer is very practical. It provides a very stable platform, which is very important for such live programmes.’
