Virtual Eye - July 2016

July began and ended with Virtual Eye Sailing covering the sixth season of the 52 Super Series, with events in Porto Cervo in Italy and Puerto Portals in Spain. Mid-month the Sailing team were supplying our tracking and graphics at the America's Cup World Series event in Portsmouth, England.
Virtual Eye Golf started the month at the Alstom Open de France, before heading to Scotland for the AAM Scottish Open at Castle Stuart and the 145th Open Championship at Royal Troon, finishing July covering the PGA Championship at Baltusrol GC in New Jersey, USA.
Our recent advances in golf graphics were first put to use at the NZ Open in Arrowtown this year. R&D funding from Callaghan Innovation enables small companies like ours to bring these technologies to market, and compete on the world stage against much larger data visualization suppliers.

Virtual Eye - June 2016

In June we continued our coverage of the UIM XCAT World Series at the Lugano Grand Prix in Switzerland, the Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series event in Chicago, and the 52 Super Series Audi Settimana delle Bocche regatta in Porto Cervo.
Virtual Eye Golf were at the Nordea Masters at Bro Hof Slott in Stockholm, the Lyoness Open at Diamond GC in Atzenbrugg and the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Laerchenhof in Pulheim.
The major event of the month was the 116th U.S. Open at the Oakmont Country Club, and Virtual Eye brought along some new tricks in addition to our traditional graphics package. From new splitscreen graphics to leaderboard and terrain overlays to 3D course models in-studio, Virtual Eye has raised the sports coverage bar even higher. The month ended with the departure of our general manager Sophie Luther, who takes up a new position with the good folk at Treble Cone Ski Area. All the best, Sophie!
