 Since its introduction at the 2012 LDI trade show, the Hog 4 range has seen success in all entertainment markets; to this end, the company unveiled a contest based on the most entries for use of a Hog 4 series product from the launch date through June 2013.

High End's Director Of Product Management Chris Ferrante said, "We're thrilled Scott earned the console, not only for the vast numbers of uses, but also for the unique applications used on multiple movie sets and commercials.”

Scott was awarded the console at the company's Austin, TX headquarters on Friday, August 2nd, and also met with key members of the Hog 4 R&D team. He said, "There are not enough words to describe how I feel today. I could quote Darren McGavin from A Christmas Story when he said, "It's a major award!" upon receiving the famous leg lamp, but not even that would do justice. I'm going to put it to work right away on Hunger Games: Mockingjay 1 & 2 for the next nine months. Big thanks to everyone at High End Systems. Everyone was extremely gracious and I am beyond thrilled!"
