DHL and Formula 1® renew their multi-year partnership ahead of the start of the new racing season
Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

DHL thus remains the Official Logistics Partner of Formula 1® for further years and will continue to be responsible for shipping world-class motorsport around the world

With 23 races, the new season includes largest race calendar in Formula 1® history; Three “triple headers” poses new complexity for logistics; Season opens March 28 in Bahrain; DHL (www.DPDHL.com) Fastest Lap Award and DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award to continue.

With the FIA Formula 1 World ChampionshipTM about to begin, DHL and Formula 1® are proud to announce the extension of their long standing global partnership, which spans across a number of decades. DHL thus remains the Official Logistics Partner of Formula 1® for further years and will continue to be responsible for shipping world-class motorsport around the world. 2021 sees 23 destinations on the Formula 1® racing calendar, the largest number in the sport’s history, with DHL transporting race cars, fuel and oil, equipment for the racing teams and transmission technology. DHL has been official logistics partner since 2004, winning each “races between the races” at every Grand Prix around the world.

“We are proud to continue our unique partnership for the years to come,” says Arjan Sissing, Global Head of Brand Marketing at DHL. “Formula 1 has been delivering the ultimate in speed, precision and technology to its fans for over 1000 races and it is DHL who delivers Formula 1 across the globe. For more than four decades, our common values connect us with each other and made it possible to win any logistics races around the world, before the first tires touch the track. We are looking forward to defend our title in each of these races between the races.”

The transport volume of up to 1,400 tons have to be transported from one venue to the next within the shortest possible time and with great reliability. That’s why DHL employs a team of motorsports logistics specialists who work closely with Formula 1® management and the racing teams. Just like on the race track, it’s all about speed, precision and cutting-edge technology.

Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO, Formula 1®, added: “DHL is our longest standing global partner and we are delighted to have signed a partnership extension that demonstrates our strong and collaborative relationship. For the past 16 years we have delivered on and off the track together. We are proud to be working with the world’s leading logistics provider as we look ahead to the biggest season ever for Formula 1”.

The 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship™ begins March 28, with the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2021 and closes December 12 with the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021. The 2021 race calendar takes in 23 races on five continents and is thus more action-packed than ever. This year, drivers, teams and DHL’s logistics crew all face the special challenge of three triple headers, where three races are held over three consecutive weekends.

In the first triple header, the action takes place in Europe. The Formula 1 Rolex Belgian Grand Prix 2021 in Spa-Francorchamps on August 29 will be followed by the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix in Zandvoort on September 5. A week later, the Formula 1 Heineken Gran Premio D’Italia 2021 will be held in Monza on September 12.

The second triple header is logistically even more challenging because significantly greater distances have to be covered. A week after the Formula 1 VTB Russian Grand Prix 2021 in Sochi on September 26, it’s off to the Singapore street circuit on October 3. And then on October 10, the Formula 1® circus travels to Suzuka in Japan.

There’s also quite a distance to cover in the season’s third triple header. The first stop is the Formula 1 Aramco United States Grand Prix 2021 in Austin, Texas, on October 24. From there, racing continues in Mexico City, with the Formula 1 Gran Premio De La Cuidad de Mexico 2021 on October 31. The triple header finishes on November 7 in São Paulo, Brazil.

“An intercontinental triple header is where logistics is really put to the test,” says Paul Fowler, Global Motorsport Head, DHL Global Forwarding. “Even during the race, before the checkered flag is waved, the DHL team start dismantling and stowing equipment.” And for the logistics experts, the job becomes especially difficult when parts have to be flown out and back in again during the three-week triple header timeframe – such as for testing in special laboratories located all around the world.

New events like the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix 2021 in Zandvoort, which is back on the Formula 1® schedule, and the Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2021, which this year will be held on a new street circuit in Jeddah, also test the logistics specialists. This is why scouts explore the new routes to ensure that, despite unfamiliar surroundings, things run smoothly and everything fits into place. For Paul Fowler, it’s challenges like these that make motorsport so appealing: “Behind the scenes, we give our all to ensure that the teams and drivers can perform at their best, and that racing fans everywhere get to see the sport they love.”

With the extended partnership, DHL will again be offering two awards: The DHL Fastest Lap Award and the DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award for special achievements by drivers and teams. This year’s awards will be presented to the winners in Abu Dhabi on the final day of the racing season.

Leading Indian game developer SuperGaming has revealed the first gameplay trailer for its upcoming Indo-Futuristic battle royale Indus to celebrate India’s Republic Day of January 26, 2023.

To launch the gameplay trailer, the company released a series of high-impact takeovers across the biggest locations in London. This is in line with SuperGaming’s vision of putting India on the global gaming map much like its previous Indus trailer launch at New York’s Times Square to mark India’s Independence Day of August 15, 2022.

“As we’ve been making Indus and seeing its gameplay evolve over the year, we wanted to share it with the rest of the world,” says SuperGaming co-founder and CEO Roby John. “This gameplay trailer is for the Indus community the world over that may not have been able to play it with us and to show off the true scale of battle royale that we want you to have when the game is out.”

The trailer entices players to discover, loot, and win on Virlok — the game’s island map, all while showcasing Indus’ weapons, Paragons (the game’s character skins), and traversal. It also highlights multiple locations and firefights with an intent of showing the scope and size of the battle royale experience SuperGaming aims to provide.

nanocosmos at ICE London, Feb 7-9, N9-322 - kicking off its 25th anniversary, celebrating 25 years of innovation
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The well-established and awarded provider for B2B interactive live streaming starts this year’s dedicated celebration of the company’s 25 years of innovation at ICE London.

Since nanocosmos joined ICE for the first time in 2018, the unique live video streaming platform nanoStream Cloud has raised the bar for live games and live bets being available anywhere at any given time on any device. Right from the beginning, the global gaming industry responded with fantastic feedback in regard to the ultra-low latency live streaming platform that delivers interactive content anywhere in the world on any device – even on mobile platforms, including iOS. The solution has matured and grown into a full featured end-to-end platform with a global network with hundreds of hosts for 24/7/365 operations. This includes unique live video streaming technology and additional tools for analytics and security. Clients from the iGaming and betting space particularly value the fact that the solution combines 100% stability with global access and allows platform operators to deliver interactive games with maximum quality of service and quality of experience for business applications around the world.

CEO and founder Oliver Lietz says: “In the midst of a rapidly changing industry, we noticed that next to the strong demand for games and betting to be available on any device anywhere in the world at ultra-low latency, it is incredibly important for our clients that they can rely on the stability of our platform. 25 years in the audio/video industry is a lot considering how we started in the video broadcast industry with software innovations from the ground off. I am proud that we can dedicate this year to celebrate sustainable innovation and partnerships, which have been our core values from the beginning.”

At booth N9-322, the nanocosmos team will showcase their product – nanoStream Cloud – with new features that highlight ease of use and refine the focus on Quality of Service and Quality of Experience.

 

New technical features to boost iGaming, betting and live casino include expanded global footprint, security, ease of use and the SRT launch

The smart spectrum of nanoStream Cloud delivers games in real-time, provides adaptive, data driven streaming for improved Quality of Service and Quality of Experience and relies on a strong Content Delivery Network, which has been significantly expanded over the last 12 months and which now further improves scalability to South America.

A series of new features make it easier and faster for stream administrators to manage and secure their streams: nanocosmos will launch nanoStream Guardian at ICE, which extends nanoStream Cloud’s security features to protect streams from misuse. Based on IP and referrer blocking, users can create blocklists for their organization and easily control which pages and users are allowed to play their streamed games.

In addition, new API routes are now available within Analytics: This allows customers to better observe their streams and to optimize the performance of their delivered content. Clients can now detect issues early during the ingestion of content, e.g., by receiving information about data not coming through or dropping bitrates. By contributing to a “healthy streaming workflow” right from the beginning, clients can optimize the quality of experience for their customers based on adaptive bitrate streaming on any device and network. Another highlight is the official launch of the SRT and Whip streaming protocols for improving live stream quality in bad network situations and from distant locations.

At ICE booth N9-322, the nanocosmos team plans to run special events and activities to celebrate 25 years of innovation.
