During Super Bowl LIII, the football action will be on the field. But a lot of the action will be enhanced by incredible new graphics, some virtual, that CBS is using to super charge the screen.
This year’s Super Bowl LIII telecast on CBS will be produced and broadcast into millions of living rooms by employing the usual plethora of traditional live production equipment, along with a few wiz bang additions like 4K UHD and an 8K camera for replays, and specially equipped wireless handheld cameras supporting augmented reality graphics and motion tracking on the field. The network said that 115 cameras would be used, 86 for the main broadcast alone, giving viewers an unprecedented television viewing experience.
