No Trick Plays

(From Broadcasting And Cable -- By Glen Dickson)

Although the biggest NFL game of the year is often a place for networks to introduce the latest production gizmos, for SUPER BOWL XLI, CBS is keeping it simple.

That is, if deploying some 500 staffers, positioning 47 HD cameras and replacing the lights at Miami's DOLPHIN STADIUM is keeping it simple.

To be sure, the scope of CBS' Super Bowl production in Miami on February 4th is typically immense -- evidenced by multiple production trucks provided by vendors NEP, COREPLEX and NEW CENTURY PRODUCTIONS with sophisticated replay, graphics and audio units.

But there won't be anything radically new for the matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears -- just a lot of state-of-the-art equipment, all in one place.

No Trick Plays
