Hippotizer Nevis+ Media Server allowed Digital Insanity to use VideoMapper and MultiController on the VTs at the event promoting boxing match between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk.

Hippotizer Nevis+ drives LED at title fight press conference

The LED screen backdrop for the press conference before the world heavyweight boxing match between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk was driven by a Hippotizer Nevis+ Media Server.

Reading-based video production company Digital Insanity was commissioned to operate the visuals for the high-profile occasion at the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane by events company VME.

Richard Bagshaw, video designer/artist at Digital Insanity, said: “All of the content was supplied by the event promotor, to be played back on the upstage LED screen behind Anthony and Oleksandr as they addressed the press. It was a straightforward project, helped by the fact that using our Hippotizer Nevis+ we could use VideoMapper and MultiController alongside audio playback on the VTs reliably and quickly.”

The Digital Insanity team had to set up the visual control in a particularly confined space. “The Nevis+ gave us all the power, features and flexibility we needed, despite its small size,” added Bagshaw. “It’s a great solution for a job like this – real-time visual playback and manipulation in a robust chassis that is compact enough to fit into temporary control areas.”
