The SVG Podcast: Super Bowl LIV Preview With Fox Sports’ Mike Davies and Kevin Callahan
Fox Sports’ plans include broadcasting in UHD and HDR, plus much more
This weekend, the NFL’s conference champions will be determined, which means that Super Bowl LIV is just a matter of weeks away. This year’s Big Game, in Miami, will be broadcast by Fox Sports, which has already made some headlines, pledging to make this Super Bowl the first one available to the public to UHD and high dynamic range.
That and much more of what the crews behind the scenes at the Super Bowl will be delivering to viewers at home was revealed in a conversation with Mike Davies, SVP, technical and field operations, and Kevin Callahan, VP, field operations and engineering, Fox Sports, at last month’s SVG Summit. Moderator of the talk was SVG Executive Director, Editorial Services, Ken Kerschbaumer.
