CBS Sports brings 80+ cameras to Arrowhead for Bengals-Chiefs, Round II

It’s an AFC Championship Game rematch for CBS Sports as the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs meet for a spot in Super Bowl LVII (Sunday, 6:30 p.m. ET, CBS).

The CBS Sports production and operations teams are in Kansas City for the fifth consecutive year for this game and are bringing with them more than 80 cameras. The production plans include 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.

In advance of Sunday’s show, Jason Cohen, VP, Remote Technical Operations for CBS Sports spoke with SVG 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?
