Super Bowl 50 Coverage Will Not Disappoint

Episode 1258

Super Bowl 50 will have 75% more cameras than last year, and the cameras will be unusual. There will be the pylon cameras that have been used during the regular season this year. It gives you a worms-eye-view of action. It'll be shot with 5K cameras as well, but it won't be broadcast in 5K or even 4K. They also will be using 36 360 degree cameras, so they'll be able to look at a play from every angle. The pylon cameras themselves are even 2K, and that's the lowest resolution they're using.

This week, Scott joins us to talk about how this week is one of the biggest weeks to buy a new TV. The Super Bowl is one of the things that keeps live TV going, and streaming the big game has been done over the last few years. According to Variety, NBC will be streaming the big game as part of an 11 hour block on NBCUniversal.com. There will also be 4K cameras shooting the action for instant replay, so they can zoom in and still have high def images. Leo would love to see a UHD version of the game.
