CBS Sports To Debut New Camera Technology For Super Bowl 50: Destiny Clements

CBS Sports will be implementing thirty-six cameras strung along the top deck of the stadium to create a 360-degree perspective for instant-replay shots. These cameras will also provide a first person point-of-view from the quarterback position. This will also help the referee’s with challenges on the field and replays. Additionally, CBS will use 16 cameras inside eight pylons in the end zones, better known as “pylon cams,” with embedded microphones to capture natural game sounds. The television network will also incorporate the use of NFL’s Next Gen stats, which tracks player movement and provides real-time matchup statistics during the broadcast. During competition, 70 cameras in all will be on hand to capture the event with 12 production trucks handling the feeds.
