CBS Sports is back with the NFL’s seven best games this Sunday. With AFC’s top teams on schedule, the broadcaster will further strengthen its on-air tech while rolling out new technology, improving his acclaimed RomoVision and introducing wired pylon cams from C360.
“It’s been really fun and exciting to take these new technologies and make an impact on broadcasting,” he says. Harold Bryant, Executive Producer/EVP, Production, CBS Sports“It’s a never-ending process, but we’re always looking for new ways to present our games and tell our stories.”
Enhanced Broadcast Toy: RomoVision Now Includes Player Identification
Winner of the prestigious George Wensel Technical Achievement Award at the 2022 Sports Emmy Awards, RomoVision has changed the way football fans interpret play on the field. It uses augmented reality for dynamic replays of some of the game’s biggest plays, and is so entrenched in its production philosophy that it becomes the first replay shown on air.
“RomoVision is made possible only through the NFL’s incredible relationship with NextGen data and its partnership with Genius Sports’ Second Spectrum.” Jason Cohen, VP, Remote Technical Operations, CBS Sports“We wanted to show the Xs and Os in a meaningful way, so we gave the front bench another tool to analyze plays.”
Winning an Emmy inspires interest in pushing technology to the next level or developing something completely new. For the 2022-23 season, Cohen and his company have decided to stick with what works and further improve the RomoVision implementation with new visual his cues and graphics.
“Our overall graphics give it a different, more modern look,” says Cohen. “You’ll also see a jersey number or a player’s identification, including the name of the player running and defending the route. He’s one of those projects that will probably continue to evolve every year, as it gives us different ideas and suggestions.” I think.”
As for gaming coverage, the camera complement boasts some notable additions and is enhanced by other notable hardware. Offers a new wired pylon camera capable of tracking. With each of the 16 cameras (4 pylons with 4 cameras each), the PTZ aspect with 200 degrees of range of motion provides angles that can be used in both live and replay settings.
“We used to have separate cameras inside the pylons that had to be quickly disconnected. [to each angle] It shows the player’s progress across the goal line and into the end zone,” says Cohen. “Conventional cameras I think he’ll have a few opportunities to try his feed live on the pylons before he returns to angles.”
Arsenal in the regular season could be bigger than ever. For example, both the A and B games used the Sony HDC-F5500 as a handheld with a shallow depth of field, with more drones on the main schedule, and on the secondary slate his five super slow motion cameras and his SkyCam is added. In total, including 13 hard cameras, 3G line-to-gain pylons, 3 Marshall POVs, 2 Sony HDC-P43 on goal posts, 2 Sony PXW-FX9, 2 Sony PXW-FX9 More than 30 cameras are used in the A package, SkyCam’s HDC-P50, and Sony HDC-4800.
