Bannister Lake Takes On Gran Turismo Esports Championships

For the second year in a row, Bannister Lake has partnered with Montreal’s Boombox Group to provide live data management and populate graphics for the FIA-Certified Gran Turismo Championships 2019 Series.

The June 21-22 event took place at the Nürburgring Track in Germany. Bannister Lake’s Chameleon software for live data management were used throughout the event to read Google Sheets, ingest and moderate real-time social media feeds, and consolidate data for the competition's various races. The solution's data was used to drive graphics both in-venue and on the various broadcast streams. Producers and event organizers use Chameleon to add content such as player and team profiles, event schedules, standings, and sponsorship information. 

The Nürburgring event featured 55 of the world's best Gran Turismo drivers from 20 countries competing in the Manufacturer Series, the Nations Cup, and GR Supra GT Cup. Chameleon will be used throughout the FIA-Certified Gran Turismo Championships 2019 racing series to enhance editorial content and fuel new revenue opportunities for event organizers.
