Virtual Eye - June 2019

Virtual Eye Golf attended 7 tournaments during June, supporting both the European and PGA Tours. Starting off already in Dublin for The Memorial Tournament, the next stop for our teams was the RBC Canadian Open in Hamilton, Ontario. The U.S Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California saw Virtual Eye adding new developments to our graphics package: a gyrostabilized gimbal platform providing new angles for shot tracking, realtime AR graphics over live shots without the need for calibration, and automated golf-hole maps. The BMW International in Germany, The Andalucia Masters in Spain, The Travelers Championship in Connecticut and the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit rounded off a stellar month for Virtual Eye Golf.

The Puerto Sherry 52 SUPER SERIES Royal Cup in Cadiz was the first event of the month for Virtual Eye Sailing, our work including broadcast graphics, live tracking at 52superseries.com and also the Official App of the 52 Super Series. The Sailing team then brought our graphical tracking technology to Kiel Week 2019 in Germany. Kiel Week is a major event on the international sailing calendar, with 4,000 sailors from 60 nations competing in more than 1,900 sailing boats.

Virtual Eye - May 2019

Techweek19 saw many of our staff contributing via panel discussions, presentations and demonstrations of our technology. Virtual Eye Cricket set up shop at the Edgar Centre in Dunedin, and visitors were invited to try bowling on an indoor pitch that was being actively tracked by the team. Visitors could then see their bowling data being put through our system and the resulting Virtual Eye graphics that many are familiar with from broadcast Test matches.

Our Virtual Eye Golf teams covered 5 tournaments on both the European and the PGA Tours during May, beginning with the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina, and followed by concurrent events the AT&T Byron Nelson in Dallas and the British Masters at Hillside GC in the UK. The PGA Championship at Bethpage and the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas rounded off the month for our Golf operators.

Virtual Eye Sailing delivered our tracking and graphics at the first ever combined Star Sailors League Breeze Grand Slam and ISCYRA European Championships in Riva del Garda, then provided our services at the Menorca 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week 2019 - the latter including broadcast graphics, live tracking at 52superseries.com and also the Official App of the 52 Super Series.

Above: Our Cricket Operations team headed down to the Edgar Centre in Dunedin during Techweek19, set up our tracking kit and captured 100 different amateur bowlers over the course of a day - Virtual Eye graphics of the tracking were displayed on a bigscreen.
