FIA Gran Turismo Championships, World Tour
For Polyphony Digital
Amplify was tasked with staging the debut FIA Gran Turismo Championships World Tour series in Oceania at Sydney's Luna Park, the world's largest and most anticipated eSports racing tournament. The event, which took place from 14-16 February 2020, had to cater to both a live and broadcast audience. The resulting high-octane experience blurred the lines between real-world and digital racing.
The venue was transformed to ensure that the live and global broadcast audiences were able to view each driver, the teams and the competition. Legendary motor racing commentators Jimmy Broadbent and Tom Brooks fronted the live global broadcasts in English on YouTube and Facebook, with additional commentary simultaneously in six other languages.
GTS virtual cameras tracked the action on screen, transitioning between trackside views and first-person shots in-game whilst at the event, trackside interviews, team benches, national anthems and sponsor activations from TAG Heuer and Michelin replicated traditional motorsports.
There were more than 4.7 million total content views across broadcast and social and the event was live streamed globally in seven languages to two million fans.

‘The Rainwall’ was an experience aimed at educating and inspiring network engineers, Cisco employees and stakeholders in IT to better understand Cisco's vision for impact.
A physical installation at Cisco Live Barcelona, which took place in January 2020 and a virtual version at other Cisco events in 2020, featured a literal wall of rain. Key messages were projected onto the rainfall, and attendees had personal headphones and 'smart' umbrellas to immerse themselves in the experience, which featured stories detailing Cisco Impact.
