New Technology Kicks Off at Super Bowl 50

February 01, 2016 - By: Sarah Hovis

The stage is set for
Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Calif. when millions will watch the
Denver Broncos (who are looking to better their
Super Bowl XLVIII performance) face off against the
Carolina Panthers (who were in
Super Bowl XXXVIII, where the
halftime show stole the spotlight). Meanwhile, the defending Super Bowl XLIX champions, the
New England Patriots, will be watching from their sofas just like the rest of us. In addition to the
entertaining commercials, there is some cool technology debuting at this year’s game to help enhance the home viewing experience:

  • EyeVision 360: Fans will be treated to a 360-degree perspective with high resolution thanks to 36 cameras positioned around the upper deck of Levi's Stadium, which can freeze the moment and revolve around the play before continuing to show the scene. Viewers can also check out different player’s perspectives on the field.
  • Pylon Cams: A Super Bowl first! Eight custom-molded pylons with high-resolution, high-definition, point-of-view cameras will film the goal line and sidelines of both teams. Housed inside the pylons are embedded microphones to enhance the natural sound of the game.

So, even if your team isn’t playing, there are still plenty of reasons to watch, which you should on Sunday, February 7 at 6:30 p.m. (ET) on CBS. Tell us in the comments what part of Super Bowl 50 you are most looking forward to. Photo via-
