Green Hippo delivers at Rhythm & Alps

New Zealand:

The 10th Rhythm & Alps Festival went ahead as planned in the Southern Alps, with Green Hippo Hippotizer Karst media servers supplied by TomTom Productions delivering the visuals for the Alpine Arena main stage, the Where The Wild Things Are stage and the Log Cabin DJ stage.

“For the Alpine Arena, we had a standard upstage LED wall, complemented by 156m of Martin VDO Sceptron strips,” explained TomTom’s Hamish Roberge. “These covered the side walls, ceiling and part of the rear wall, allowing us to extend the LED wall content out, or run separate content for contrast. Hippotizer control was via the lighting console over Art-Net, and the media servers were at FOH, which gave the LDs a direct GUI-view of what they were playing back. The Hippotizer integrates directly with the Martin P3 PC, which maps and controls the VDO Sceptron, both for control as a DMX fixture and also as a video screen.”

On the Where The Wild Things Are stage, another Hippotizer Karst server fed custom visual content projected from two stacked Christie HD14K-M projectors onto the large, carved Buddha face that formed the stage’s centrepiece. A third Karst unit served the smallest Log Cabin stage, where TomTom hung SGM LB-100 LED bead strings from the ceiling. This gives Roberge and his colleagues flexibility when designing and mapping complex pixelmap shapes, using the Hippotizer’s PixelMapper feature to overlay video onto the beads via Art-Net.

“Hippotizer’s Art-Net integration, allowing control via the lighting console, is the biggest single feature for me,” continued Roberge. “The layout is intuitive for lighting designers, so they can get the most out of the media server. This is especially so with the Martin VDO Sceptron being a hybrid video and lighting product. When you factor in Hippotizer’s Martin P3 software integration, it’s the perfect playback device.”
