A family-owned company, Ottawa-based DataVisual will add Green Hippo’s Hippotizer Media Server product range to its comprehensive AV systems portfolio, improving its offering to clients across the breadth of Canada’s pro-AV marketplace.
Having enjoyed a long relationship with Green Hippo’s sister brands Magenta Research and tvONE, DataVisual found the Hippotizer range a perfect addition to its technology offering. “The fit between our two organizations has always been very good, as we both place a high value on the service and support required of more technically sophisticated products,” said DataVisual CEO Lisa Kislich-Lemyre. “The addition of Green Hippo to that family was welcome news. We’ve had a lot of success with tvONE’s videowall processors, but Media Servers were the one piece of the content delivery puzzle that we were missing.”
She added, “The more we learned about Green Hippo and their media playback solutions, the more excited we became. Suddenly we had a whole suite of playback options that we could offer, from a well-known vendor with A-list customer references.”
DataVisual, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, has grown from a small supplier of AV accessories to become one of Canada’s largest distributors of professional AV technology for the installation, infrastructure and live events markets.
