The Super Bowl setupCBS is planning to use a Trolley Cam. The cam will zipline along a wire extending from one end of the stadium to the other. They can move at speeds up to 65 miles per hour. CBS will have three sky cams tied into the feed, per their press release. CBS also said that they will use two Sony Venice cameras. These types of cinematic cameras and lenses are usually for filming commercials and movies. They provide a much greater depth of field to the viewer, which could be descaled as a “3D look” in other words. In addition, the sports network will also have a gargantuan 53-foot Movie Bird crane. The crane, which will be set up on the stadium’s upper concourse, will give the viewer broad, dramatic views of all the action. Unbelievably enough, in all, over 120 cameras will be tied into the broadcast. They will be at key vantage points around the stadium and facilitate close-up shots at important moments in the game. There will also be 32 cameras embedded into the eight endzone pylons, which will be able to show close calls on touchdowns. With restricted in-person attendance, the extra space in the stadium allows CBS Sports to present an even richer broadcast for the viewers at home. CBS’s coverage of Super Bowl LV begins this week with programming on CBS Sports Network leading up to Super Bowl Sunday.
