Taiga central in Middle East and Africa

During the months of October both Simon Harris, User Experience Manager and Tom Etra, Technical Sales Manager were busy visiting partners and making new acquaintances in the Middle East and Africa.

Simon went out to Dubai to conduct a very successful three day training course for the video crew at eclipse Staging Service, who had recently purchased two V4 Taiga media servers.

Tom flew out to attend InfoComm Middle East and Africa at the end of October where he was on the Martin Professional stand, showing the implementation of the new P3- PC system controller and Green Hippo’s Hippotizer media servers. This integration unlocks the power of Martin’s creative video solutions in smaller shows and events. You can now install the P3-PC software directly onto any Green Hippo media server running the Hippotizer V4 software, effectively enabling the media server to output the P3 protocol.

After the InfoComm show Tom went on to visit the offices of both Martin Professional Middle East and Venutech to provide training and demo on V4 and SHAPE.

He then went onto visit a few of our other partners Sultan Thomas from Wide Angle, who is very busy with Hippotizer shows in Lebanon and Dubai and very happy with his 2 x V4 Taiga, purchases recently. Before then seeing Shadi and Vinny from Extreme Productions, who have just moved into their new offices to demo the advanced and new features of V4.

“Shadi and Vinny were blown away by V4 and are looking forward to adding V4 to their rental stock early January 2016,” said Tom.

He rounded off his trip with a quick visit to eclipse Staging Services too, to check they were happy with their training and to discuss a few future projects and plans.

“We are working closely with our partners in the Middle East and Africa and have successfully signed new partners as well as increasing our sales in this region by over 40%. We are very excited to see what exciting jobs 2016 holds for Hippotizer V4 and are on track to continue our growth” commented Samantha Bailey, Vice President of Business Development.
