Green Hippo And SRae Productions Light Up Imagine Dragons World Tour

SRae Productions has deployed three Hippotizer Boreal Media Servers to light up the North American leg of the Imagine Dragons Evolve World Tour.

The Boreals controlled 30 LED pods. Mounting the pods on a brace of automated Axis the SRae team used four projectors to shoot on to physical roll drop units.

The three Boreals – two active, one acting as back-up – received location data via PSN information fed from Raynok Automation software. Here, Green Hippo's SHAPE proved invaluable. 

Matt Geasey, Technical Director of SRae, said: "We really enjoy the SHAPE function of Hippotizer, which quickly aligns and builds the show while utilising multi controller to accept and manage different pieces of information coming into the system. The ability to quickly adjust the SHAPE file while the system is online, and then sending the new file into the system is really handy for live implementation."
SRae's Green Hippo machines were running the latest version of Hippotizer V4, and Mr Geasey praised not only the award-winning software – including its Colour Blocks function – but also the 'human support' provided by Green Hippo itself.
"One of our favourite features of V4 is the colour block function in the viewports," said Mr Geasey. "We were able to successfully build smooth fades and change the layouts of the blocks, fast, when needed to create different dynamic looks, when the automated pods were in different configurations. I choose Hippotizer because of the support it has behind it. The special projects team, who were involved on this project once we confirmed the design, really helped make the system work when changes were happening during the process. Good team right there."
