2006 Ryder Cup

23 Sep 2006

Ireland hosting this years Ryder Cup was too big a party to miss. ARL's Virtual Eye golf team was there at the K Club, Dublin, alongside the likes of Michael Jordan and former presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush Sr. Virtual Eye worked with BSkyB and European Tour Productions to provide analysis of the course and play using a highly accurate model of the course, live ball position data, tee and pin locations, green contours and more.

The Ryder Cup is one of golf's most prestigious events, and so was the ideal event to launch our new graphical look. Making the most of modern graphics hardware, we have added physically based water (reflection and refraction), soft shadowing and highly detailed grass to our graphics - and of course, being Ireland, we had to make it rain too.

Sailing Grand Prix

24 Aug 2006

ARL's Virtual Eye have demonstrated that with only 4 weeks notice they could create America’s Cup style graphics at a new venue. The German Sailing Grand Prix, the first-ever America's Cup Class regatta in Germany, involved three of the 32nd America’s Cup yachts. The venue was Kiel Firth, which is also used for the spectacular Kiel Week regatta - an annual sailing event and public festival.

Virtual Eye arrived on site for the first time just days before racing and established a telemetry network with which to receive GPS data from the yachts. The data collected from the water was used to create the now famous 3D yacht racing animations and also to feed directly into the 2D graphics package developed for the event. Both packages were developed and operated by ARL/Virtual Eye and were incorporated into the live big screen broadcast watched by thousands of spectators, and also a highlights package for TV broadcast.
