Over 108 million Americans watched the Super Bowl on Sunday, a broadcast that takes over a year’s worth of planning and thousands of workers to pull off. In the world of live production, there’s nothing else quite like it.
Be it 4K replay or a 36-minute blackout or an army of studio sets, Super Bowl XLVII wasn’t short on tech talk.
SVG had the Super Bowl covered from top to bottom. Relieve the biggest week in live sports production as SVG takes you behind-the-scenes to see all of the facilities, gear, and innovations that made Super Bowl XLVII undoubtedly the most-watched television event of 2013.
In the week leading up to the Big Game, many of the major networks were on hand in and around the French Quarter to capture all of the anticipation. CBS Sports has had a profound presence in New Orleans’ famous Jackson Square with “CBS Super Bowl Park at Jackson Square.” It includes four stages designed by local design firm Solomon Group, standup positions for CBS affiliates on top of Artillery Park across Decatur Street, and a massive compound with seven remote-production units, a two-story CBS News facility, and trailers for talent, guests, and staff.
