CBS will use pylon cameras in NFL broadcasts this season

Wednesday September 2nd, 2015

CBS will use pylon cameras in NFL broadcasts this season, according to NBC's ProFootballTalk.

The network is slated to broadcast NFL games on Sunday, as well as nine Thursday night games in conjunction with NFL Network.

CBS is also considering using the pylon cameras during the playoffs and for Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Calif.

According to CBS, the pylon cameras give “NFL viewers the most field-level view of critical plays,” and will give viewers more than just an amplified shot of players diving into the end zone.

The pylon cameras could also be used as part of the replay review process to determine whether a touchdown has been scored.

This season, CBS enters its 56th year broadcasting the NFL.
