CBS Sports Utilizing New Camera Tech for Super Bowl LV

Super Bowl LV to Feature Trolley Cam and Movie Bird Crane with Dramatically New Camera Angles

CBS Sports is ready to bring its A-game to its production of Super Bowl LV, announcing a number of new technologies, ranging from cameras to graphics, that the network says will bring a new look to fans.

Super Bowl LV will be the 21st time CBS has produced the Super Bowl, and because of the unique circumstances as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic—including the reduced number of fans that will be in the stadium for the game—the network has announced a number of new cameras that will be utilized during the broadcast.

For the first time live at the Super Bowl, CBS Sports will deploy the Trolley Cam, a SHOTOVER G1 gimbal paired with a DEFY DactylCam Pro, that will speed from one end of the stadium to the other, ziplining along a wire and positioned to provide the viewing angle of a fan in the eighth row of the stands. The rig can travel up to 65 mph and will provide a look at the players from a vantage point not used in the history of the Super Bowl.
