Hippotizer V4 – The Heavyweight at WrestleMania 31

If Roman circuses had LED walls, they might look like WrestleMania 31, where modern gladiators entertained 77,000 people and one million PPV subscribers. For the spectacle, one end of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA had a truly massive mélange of LED panel screens, as wide as 400 ft. and as high as 40 ft.

Driving media content to the LED displays were five Hippotizer V4 Boreals: Three with four mixes each of 1920x1080 output and two with two mixes, each in pan mode at 3840x1080. Preprogrammed media content was created by WWE’s in-house graphics team. Specifically designed for each flamboyant Superstar, motifs ranged from the Kremlin to the Gates of Hell.

In addition, in the show’s screens control room, a V4 Boreal provided live 3D visualization of the entire theatre and stage, including all media content, giving the programming team both accurate real-time and pre-viz representations of the show as required, including the moving screens.
