CBS Sports deployed Pylon Cam systems from Admiral Video for its coverage yesterday of Super Bowl 50 from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. — the first time such systems have been used for the NFL’s championship game.
During the regular season, Admiral Video was one of two companies to supply the pylon cameras for Thursday Night Football.
For the Super Bowl, CBS Sports used eight pylons with a total of 16 miniature HD cameras (two cameras each). Unlike their use during regular season, two pylon cam systems were added at the back of each end zone for the Super Bowl.
The pylon cam systems rely on two miniature Marshall Electronics HD cameras.
More information about how CBS Sports used the plyon cameras is available in “CBS Turns Up Tech For Super Bowl Sizzle.”
