events in the world, the track-side audience at Nürburgring has grown to
more than 60,000 spectators. Given escalating demand from car racing
enthusiasts globally, event organizers wanted to ensure that the 42nd
anniversary year of the extravaganza was available to motorsport fans

"The popularity of the Oldtimer Grand Prix is tremendous but we want to
continue to expand its visibility to fans both near and far," said Dr.
Andreas Nowack, CEO AvD-Oldtimer-Grand Prix GmbH und Co OHG. For those
fans who are unable to join us track-side in Germany, it's very
important that we offer them a first-rate visual experience via
connected device no matter where they are. "LiveStream Perform has met
our rigorous demands for high-quality multiscreen viewing and is helping
us to grow the event on a global level."
During the two days of the event, the over-the-top Web and mobile

America, EMEA, Latin America and China is expected to tune in.
"Thanks to the easy set-up of LiveStream Perform, expanding the
visibility and audience reach of all types of events has never been
easier," said Karim El-Khazen, Vice President at Deutsche Telekom.

all of your multinational office locations or streaming live events like
the AvD Oldtimer-Grand Prix to a global audience are only two use cases
the solution can perfectly cover."
