The Hippotizer AMBA V4 Media Server is a compact and powerful 1U media server with the capacity for an internal capture card and a removable drive. Indeed, the Hippotizer AMBA outperforms many larger systems. With a single unlimited resolution output, the Hippotizer Amba can additionally be used with splitters or on greater than HD projects.

The AMBA also has several output connectors for use with Zookeeper. These use the motherboard onboard graphics system. The AMBA also features DVI-I and Display Port Output from the main graphics card. The Hippotizer AMBA V4 supports the use of a single display output at a time, and in addition, can be used with multiple display units.

With Hippotizer’s Media Manager, all media can be imported using drag and drop. Furthermore, WatchFolders automate new media detection, encoding and distribution. Finally, the Green Hippo Codec: FlexRes, enables visually lossless playback with direct export from most content creation software.

Furthermore, these Media Servers have slot-capacity for additional hardware. I.e. an internal capture card or an extra removable drive.
