How new camera tech is changing this year's big game broadcast

Sports
I'm Clay Matthews and welcome to Tech behind the game. The game itself is big. We've got dozens of people on the field at any given time. But the massive operation involved in broadcasting the game itself is even bigger, with hundreds of tech professionals and millions of people tuning in from around the world. As a Super Bowl champion commentator, I've had the chance to see some of these high tech operations up close, but it's progressing every year. What are the latest technologies being used and how are they leveling up the experience for viewers at home car is going to give us a play by play on how tech is taking sports broadcasting to new heights. Hey, Clay. The big game doesn't just showcase the two best teams, but also the latest, coolest broadcast technology. This year more than 120 cameras will be filming the game. And that includes several dozen High Definition 5K cameras mounted around the stadium. [MUSIC] To capture enormous amounts of data for replays, Intel's TrueView software will process that footage to reconstruct any play from all angles to create the most dynamic replays for the fans. Those touchdown drives game winning catches and thrilling Hail Mary finishes. All come alive and are that much more thrilling when CNN slowmo from 360 degrees. The same Intel true view technology is giving the fans a player's perspective. If you've ever wanted to feel what it's like to be part of a huddle, this tech will take you off your sofa and into the game. From this angle you can see what Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady sees and feel what Tom Brady feels. Watch as he reads the defense, finds the open player and makes the throw. In this case, that pass is complete to his top receiver Mike Evans. Intel True View is currently being used at 20 NFL stadiums including Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida where the big game will be played. On top of the sheer number of cameras being used to cover the game, there's incredible variety too. Robotic cameras, pylon cameras, sky cameras, fly cameras, super slow mo cameras, line cameras, And this year something new called the trolley camera this trolley Zips along a wire above the field at 65 miles an hour. It gives fans at home the viewing angle of someone sitting in the eighth row and similar to the way a spider cam works. It follows the action down the field so you don't miss us step of that Breakaway 50 yard run. The fans watching the big game can also expect to see cinema quality footage from the new Venice cameras and also sweeping panoramic shots from the 53 foot movie bird crane. Now these technologies are usually used in cinema and not necessarily live sports. So I don't know about you clay but I'm ready to tune in And watch all these cool cameras in action. Thanks Cara. We've got one more episode coming at you. This time, we're hopping off the couch and getting our reps in. I'm Clay Mathews and I'll see you next time. [BLANK_AUDIO]
