Green Hippo spotted across South Africa
SOUTH AFRICA: Green Hippo and its South African partner, DWR Distribution, recently toured the country for a week-long training programme. The seminars were led by Green Hippo sales manager Phil Blue with support from DWR staff.
The first event took place in Cape Town and saw Mr Blue demonstrate the Hippotizer Boreal and Karst systems and the ZooKeeper interface. The next stop was Durban, where again ZooKeeper was covered, followed by case studies from some of the local Green Hippo installations in churches and theatres, including the Playhouse Theatre. Johannesburg was the final stop and training was conducted at DWR head office, with attendees taken through ZooKeeper.
‘The roadshow was very successful and all who attended were excited about the product,’ recalled Dylan Jones from DWR. ‘I personally found the Shape 3D mapping software very interesting. Being able to import 3D models from CAD into Shape and then visualise your projection mapping for masking and alignment before setup is an invaluable tool. I really enjoyed learning from Phil Blue and his training really put forward the foundations of the Hippotizer software.
‘It’s always pleasure to meet Green Hippo users and help them get even more from our kit,’ said Mr Blue. ‘Huge thanks to the team at DWR for their invaluable support.’
