CBS, Fox to Provide HD Aerial Coverage of NFL Games

Nov 19, 2004  •  Post A Comment

CBS and Fox plan to go high in the sky to provide high-definition aerial coverage of NFL games this season, including the Super Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla. Cablecam International, which provides camera systems for aerial shots of the games, plans to use Helinet’s HD aerial camera platform for football coverage. The coverage starts immediately. The Helinet technology has been used for live broadcasts during NBA playoff games on TNT, providing aerial shots above the Staples Center in Los Angeles, for instance. The system is also used by a handful of local TV stations around the country for their HD news-gathering efforts.
