Virtual Eye - Summer 2020/21

In December, Virtual Eye fielded multiple teams to cover not only the third ODI, three T20 matches and the first two Tests between India and hosts Australia - but also four Big Bash League (BBL) matches in Canberra, Brisbane and on the Gold Coast. Our Golf Remote Ops team worked the early morning shifts here in New Zealand, bringing our tracking and graphics to bear on the PGA Tour's QBE Shark Shootout, plus the Dubai Championship and DP World Tour Championship on the European Tour.

Virtual Eye sports coverage was born at the America's Cup in 1992, so the event holds a special place on our calendar. Our Sailing Ops team unpacked a full bag of tricks for both broadcast and streaming coverage at the PRADA Christmas Cup in Auckland - a first stretch of the foils for the teams, and an awesome spectacle to end the year with.

In January, one Virtual Eye team covered the third and fourth Tests between Australia and India, while another supplied our graphics to twelve BBL matches in Brisbane, Hobart, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Melbourne and on the Gold Coast. Golf Remote Ops were on night-shift delivering graphics to the Sentry Tournament, the Sony Open, The American Express and the Farmer Insurance Open for the PGA Tour, with the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and the Omega Dubai Desert Classic for the European Tour ending another busy Golf month.

Virtual Eye was again a feature of both broadcast and online coverage for the PRADA Cup, which took place over January and February, while back at the office we kicked into gear preparing software, assets and operators for the 2021 Major League Baseball Spring Training in late February. At the same time, Virtual Eye Golf were remotely supporting events on the PGA Tour and European Tour in the early hours, being the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Genesis Invitational, the WGC-Workday Championship and the Saudi International. 2021 looks like a busy one :)

Virtual Eye - November 2020

Virtual Eye crossed the Tasman to support another Summer of Cricket, operating out of a secure Sydney hub for broadcaster Fox Sports. The first two One Day Internationals between Australia and India took place on the 27th and 29th at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with Virtual Eye providing tracking, analysis and graphics. We've also been developing a visual based player tracking system that uses a neural network to detect and track player movements. We call the final output of that system the 'Hyper Field' in our Cricket Display application.

Virtual Eye Golf Remote Operations supported the Houston Open and the RSM Classic at Sea Island on the PGA Tour, and the Cyprus Showdown on the European Tour this past month. We have also been testing our technology for the PRADA America’s Cup World Series Auckland and the PRADA Christmas Race, before the PRADA Cup in January and February 2021 leading up to the 36th America's Cup.
