Virtual Eye - Summer 2021/22

Our Golf and Cricket Operations teams merged over the Summer, swapping codes as needed to supply as many event graphics as possible. The start of December had our Remote Ops covering the Hero World Challenge and QBE Shark Shootout on the PGA Tour, while the 1st Ashes Test between hosts Australia and England in Brisbane shared the limelight with the first 3 Big Bash League games in Sydney and Melbourne - with coverage of all 4 fixtures enhanced by Virtual Eye graphics. The 2nd Ashes Test was in Adelaide, with the 3rd Ashes Test in Melbourne bookended by 6 Big Bash League matches in Adelaide, Hobart, Sydney, Coffs Harbour and Melbourne.

Early in the new year Virtual Eye covered the 4th Ashes Test in Sydney and 4 more Big Bash League matches in Sydney and Melbourne, and also resumed our work on the PGA Tour with the Sentry Tournament at Kapalua resort and the Sony Open at Waialae Country Club. The 5th Ashes Test took place in Hobart at the Bellerive Oval, with Virtual Eye in remote attendance supplying our graphics. Another 3 Big Bash League matches in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne kept the operators busy, with concurrent tournaments on both the PGA and European Tours seeing out January and meaning some very late nights for the team. The American Express tournament on the PGA Tour was supported alongside the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on the European Tour, the same holding true for The Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines and the Slync.io Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates GC.

Virtual Eye - November 2021

On November 11 we shut the office doors and held The Dowling Street Emmys - another Sports Emmy had arrived, and this time we added the George Wensel Technical Achievement Award to the cabinet for our work on MLB Network’s StatCast 3D TV graphics package. ARL Head of baseball Simon Chattington said the aim of the graphics was to visualise what a fan could not see with the naked eye. "We got over 8000 clips on TV across the whole baseball season, which is pretty good production," he said.

Throughout the month, Virtual Eye Golf continued remotely supplying graphics to simultaneous tournaments on the PGA Tour and The European Tour, beginning with the Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico and the Portugal Masters in Vilamoura. The Houston Open on the PGA Tour was the next tournament, followed by concurrent events The RSM Classic at Sea Island Resort and the DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.
