Input cards and supported combinations
Hippotizer v3 supports the following input cards:
VisionDVI-DL Capture Cards VisionRGB-E1S Capture Cards VisionRGB-E2S Capture Cards VisionSDI2 Capture Cards VisionSD8 Capture Cards VisionSD4+1S Capture Cards DeckLink Studio DeckLink SDI DeckLink Duo Elecard Single SDI
Notes: Back panels for all of these cards are also available to suit your Hippotizer. Please contact your local distributor for pricing. The input cards above can also be used in the GrassHopper (only 1 can be installed) including the Alpermann+Velte PCI-e SMPTE card. Use only the supported drivers for these cards for the version of Hippotizer installed which are found in either the C:\hippotizerv3\thirdparty folder on your Hippotizer or on the Green Hippo Support downloads page.
The maximum number of input card combinations we can have on an HD is 2 PCIe cards and 1 on the GrassHopper. 2 cards from Blackmagic are not supported due to driver issues. 2 Elecards cannot be fitted. There are no PCI slots on the current HD units. Installing 2 PCI-e cards is not always a simple task as the orientation of the Zookeeper and Output graphics cards can have an impact on the cooling performance of the unit. The installation of multiple cards should be carried out by Green Hippo trained technicians. Adding any card after the unit has been shipped from the factory requires updating of the factory restore options.
