Virtual Eye - October 2020

Virtual Eye have covered the America's Cup since 1992, and are again providing our tracking and graphics to the 36th America's Cup in 2021. The Event Official Website will provide all the live content including on board camera footage, Virtual Eye graphics, behind-the-scenes storytelling and more.

Our parent company Animation Research Ltd recently received a 2020 AmCham - DHL Express Success and Resilience Innovation Award for Virtual Eye's work (during the COVID19 pandemic) building a new platform to continue covering PGA Tour Golf from our offices in Dunedin and also support Major League Baseball with the aid of state-side staff, successfully pivoting how we deliver our our services between the USA and New Zealand.

Virtual Eye Golf continued our support of both the European Tour and PGA Tour Golf in October, with concurrent tournaments again bookmarking the month. The Scottish Open at Renaissance Club and Sanderson Farms Champs in Mississippi were the first pairing of events, followed by the trio of the BMW Champs at Wentworth, the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin and the Women’s PGA Champs at Aronimink Golf Club, Pennsylvania. The next simultaneous tournaments were the Scottish Championship at St. Andrews and the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek, followed by the final duo of the Italian Open at Chervò Golf Club and the Zozo Championship at Sherwood CC, with the Cyprus Open at Aphrodite Hills seeing off the month.

Virtual Eye - September 2020

PGA TOUR TOURCast received a 2020 Leaders Sports Award for Innovation in September, for it's creative disruption of Golf coverage. PGA TOUR TOURCast (developed by PGA TOUR, iX.co and Virtual Eye) runs on the web and multiple devices, tracking the action of golf players playing on the PGA Tour in real-time on an interactive 3D model. Tee shot shapes are shown using TrackMan radar, and SHOTLink (powered by CDW) displays shot trails within the 3D environment. Video clips from the TV broadcast are automatically inserted into PGA TOUR TOURCast.

Since June, Virtual Eye Golf has delivered our tracking graphics to the PGA Tour from our remote operations suite in Dunedin, New Zealand. The European Tour teed off once more in late July, with Virtual Eye supplying our tracking graphics both remotely and with local Virtual Eye operators. In September we were able to cover the Andalucia Masters in Portugal, the PGA Tour Championship in Georgia, the Safeway Open in California, the Portugal Masters, the U.S. Open at Winged Foot and the Irish Open at Galgorm Castle.

Sports Video Group Europe posted in late September about Virtual Eye taking 3D graphics production for sports broadcasting remote over the European summer, using Amazon Web Services to enable our continued global sports broadcasting work during lockdown. At the start of the month Virtual Eye Sailing covered Kiel Week in Germany, and we continued supplying our data-driven graphics and virtual stadiums to the Major League Baseball StatCast 3D product.
