Marquee Sports Network employs ‘Megalodon’ camera on game broadcast
Marquee Sports Network yesterday introduced a new camera technology never before seen on a live MLB game broadcast. Nicknamed the “Megalodon,” it is a high-resolution, shallow depth of field wireless camera allowing for cinematic live-action shots.
The camera technology, which has face and eye detection allowing for pristine auto focus, was previously utilized during NFL games, including the Super Bowl, as well as the Masters.
“We’re always looking for ways to innovate the live game broadcast and we’re fortunate to be able to do this with great leadership on the production side in Mike Leary and Mike Fox, spearheading the use of this new camera technology,” said Marquee Sports Network SVP Programming and Production, Mike Santini. “We’re appreciative of our partnership with the Cubs, allowing field access to capture the stunning up-close shots and bringing Cubs fans closer than ever to their favorite players.”
