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.
