It's Bengals-Chiefs Round Two as, for the fifth consecutive season, CBS Sports is in Kansas City to broadcast the AFC Championship Game (Sunday, 6:30 p.m. ET, CBS).
The CBS Sports production and operations teams are bringing with them more than 80 cameras, including Trolley Cam, Sky Cam, a live drone, fixed wing aerials, Pylon Cams, 15 super slow-mo cameras, the Sports Emmy Award-winning “RomoVision,” and much more.
We are joined on The SVG Podcast by Jason Cohen, VP, Remote Technical Operations for CBS Sports to offer an exclusive look at the work going into this Sunday's big show. What should viewers expect? What was it like producing last week's Divisional Round game in snowy Buffalo? How has Trolly Cam emerged as a signature camera angle for CBS in the Playoffs? That and much more.
NOTE: This conversation was recorded on Thursday, January 26 in advance of the AFC Championship Game. Since the recording, Jason has updated that the Fujinon HZK25-1000mm lens has been moved to a Sony 4800 shooting at 8X.
