Super Bowl: Sony cameras to cover big game

DALLAS — Sony high-definition cameras are being used by mobile production company Game Creek Video for this Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast on Fox Sports. The production company is employing 32 Sony HDC-1500 multi-format cameras and four HDC-3300 3x slow-motion cameras.
 
Game Creek will have eight trucks on site: its FX HD mobile production system for the game; Liberty for pre-game activities; and Patriot for a celebrity-red carpet pre-game segment. The Sony cameras will be used for each of these broadcasts, with the HDC-1500 cameras serving as the primary field-production units. The HDC-3300 slow-motion systems will be in each end zone, with two of the cameras used as hand-held units.
 
Game Creek used the cameras for the NFC Championship Game in Chicago just two weeks ago in brutally cold weather.  “They performed great,” recalls Game Creek’s president Pat Sullivan. “Our track record of success with these HD cameras and their spectacular image quality are a big part of why we’re confident that they will help bring viewers at home one of the best and most immersive high-definition championship game broadcasts they’ve ever seen.”
