Super Bowl Kicks Off Busy Month for Bexel Broadcast
Bexel Broadcast Services rolled into Miami’s Sun Life Stadium with its largest contingent of equipment ever for a single Super Bowl client. The equipment provided to CBS Sports includes eight Avid Symphony Nitris systems that are tied into a 24 TB Avid Unity server system; three Sony Super Slo-Mo camera systems; HD monitors throughout the compound, stadium and sets; seven Autoscript teleprompters; Sony SRW decks; 16 EVS servers, and an assortment of Canon and Fujinon lenses. And making its Super Bowl debut are Lite Panel LED lighting systems that will be used in the CBS broadcast booth.
The Super Bowl kicks off a very busy month for Bexel. Along with the work it is doing for CBS Sports it is also in Miami supporting the NFL Network and the NFL. And then there are the non-Super Bowl clients to be served later this month.
“It’s an amazing feat that we’re able to provide this level of equipment with all of the events like the Olympics, NBC All-Star Game, Daytona, and Winter X Games,” says Lee Estroff, Bexel Broadcast Services, director of broadcast technical sales. “It’s quite an undertaking but we pulled it off with great support from engineering and operations.”
The majority of the equipment used at the Super Bowl will make the journey to Dallas on Monday where it will be used for next weekend’s coverage of the NBA All-Star Game.
