Anna Valley First to Land Hippotizer + Media Server Range

Leading AV company claims UK’s first delivery of new Hippotizer + Media Server range, supplied by A.C. Entertainment Technologies.

London, UK, November 2017 – The new Hippotizer + range of Media Servers, launched at LDI today, brings a host of added benefits to the maker’s powerful machines, and the first UK outfit to take delivery of the latest models is Anna Valley.

Anna Valley has provided both fixed installation and rental services to the event, retail, corporate and entertainment sectors in the UK for over 25 years.  Some of this year’s AV rental highlights include providing AV solutions for ITV’s “X Factor” and “The Voice” and video displays for the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success National Awards and the global film premieres of “Dunkirk” and “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.”

Anna Valley’s purchase sees the company adding four Hippotizer Boreal + Media Servers to their existing stock of Hippotizer V4 Boreal DVI servers.  The new servers’ significantly increased processing power and generative content capabilities will provide the team with increased capability to tackle projects involving a huge canvas of pixels, ultra-high-definition content and interactive elements, while maintaining the ability to make changes quickly in response to the dynamic nature of live events.  The Hippotizer Boreal + units were supplied by the specialist Video sales division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies, the exclusive UK distributor of Green Hippo.

Peter Jones, Technical and Operations Director at Anna Valley commented: “One of the biggest benefits that the Hippotizer + range delivers is the ability to use real-time motion graphics which opens up huge new creative opportunities for live shows and events.  We can’t wait to introduce our clients to these state-of-the-art servers.”

James Roth, Head of Sales & Marketing at Green Hippo also commented: “Our latest Hippotizer + Media Server range has the superfast graphics processing needed to run all the latest content creation software. It’s been designed for the kind of top quality, high end, exciting productions that Anna Valley are associated with.”
