Don’t let the diminutive size of the HippoCritter fool you. It’s a powerful performer in a compact 1U rackmount casing and boasts an enviable feature set for such an affordable package.

Being the baby of the Hippotizer range doesn’t compromise features and flexibility. Four layers of standard definition media, RegionMapper, VideoMapper and UberPan compatibility, Presets and XFade on Layer means HippoCritter will provide a wealth of options to lift your show to new levels.

A built in composite input and rugged industrial chassis means HippoCritter will work hard for your event. The option of a custom patch panel provides professional connections and flexible racking configurations.

Unlimited PixelMapper universes and a suite of related software tools also make HippoCritter a phenomenal DMX mapping solution at an affordable price.
