Israeli Race Car Maker Griiip to Integrate Live Video Broadcast in Vehicles
Griiip will install broadcasting systems on its race cars, streaming the video to a dedicated site that allows users to follow individual drivers
Israel-based race car maker Griiip Automotive Engineering Ltd. is integrating live broadcast technology into its vehicles. Griiip has signed a deal with Israel-based live broadcasting company LiveU Ltd. to live broadcast motorsports events, the companies announced last week. A pilot took place earlier this month in a race in Northern Italy, which was streamed live through a dedicated site that allowed users to individually follow each driver.
Founded in 2015 and based in Petah Tikva, a town in central Israel, Griiip designs and manufactures race cars targeted at the entry-level racing market. The company’s G1 series is powered by an engine from Italian motorcycle company Aprilia. It made its debut in July in the Formula X Italian race series, taking first place.
