Virtual Eye has returned to Major League Baseball, supplying our data-driven graphics and virtual stadiums to the MLB StatCast 3D product. StatCast 3D can generate high-resolution, data-based visuals that go beyond recent, well-received innovations such as ball and player tracking. Cameras can in essence become virtual, offering a recreation of a sharply hit ground ball from the perspective of the third baseman, the ball, or plenty more. ESPN senior coordinating producer Phil Orlins called StatCast 3D "one of the most revolutionary things that's ever been seen in sports TV."
Virtual Eye Golf continued remote operations on the PGA Tour, delivering our graphics in real-time from our suite in New Zealand to the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, The Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village GC, the 3M Open in Minneapolis and the WGC FedEx St.Jude Invitational. The European Tour also restarted in late July with the British Masters at Close House, followed by the Hero Open in Birmingham - our UK-based operators were in attendance, providing our tracking and graphics.
