Whole Hog IPC

The Hog® iPC™ console offers maximum flexibility for productions in an economical, midrange controller. It is designed to take full advantage of the Wholehog 3 operating system’s advanced features and functionality while being backwards compatible with the discontinued, but widely-used Wholehog 2 operating system. The Hog iPC console houses a PC motherboard and hard drive optimized to operate with the Hog 3PC application. The Windows® XP embedded (XPe) operating system — a streamlined version of Windows XP, is custom configured for its specific use within the Hog iPC console. Hog iPC uses four universes of DMX output direct from the console, expandable to eight universes using USB DMX Widgets or a USB DMX Super Widget. An unlimited number of DMX outputs is also available through the use of Wholehog 3 DMX Processors (DP’s). In addition the Hog iPC console includes one SMPTE input, and MIDI in/out/thru capabilities as well as two 12-inch high-brightness color touchscreens with adjustable viewing angles. A backlit trackball with four buttons can be configured to provide cursor and position control. Ten Playback faders feature familiar Wholehog 3 playback controls (choose, go, pause & flash). Hog iPC offers an internal hard drive, and re-writeable CD-ROM drive; five Universal Serial Bus ports for touchscreens, external drives, printer, and Wholehog 3 accessories (e.g. playback wing, expansion wing, and additional USB DMX Widgets). A third monitor or touchscreen can also be connected to the DVI video output to provide maximum viewing flexibility. An Ethernet connector allows communications with Hog 3PC computers, other Hog iPC consoles, Wholehog 3 console systems, and Wholehog 3 DMX and Timecode Processors. Remote Focus functionality is available when networked with a computer or tablet PC running
Hog 3PC software. In addition to operating optimally with Hog 3PC software, the Hog iPC console is backwards compatible with the Hog® 2PC application. Utilizing the Hog iPC console internal hardware, the Hog 2PC application provides four universes of DMX output (expandable to seven), as well as one SMPTE input and MIDI in/out/thru capabilities. The Hog iPC console is constructed of precision-machined aluminum in a familiar Wholehog blue style with a tough wear-resistant anodized finish.
Note: Although show files can be programmed using either Hog 3PC or Hog 2PC software on the Hog iPC console, show files remain specific to each application and are not interchangeable.
