Capturing Live Events

super_bowl_2013_p3 The live broadcast of a major sports event can provide plenty of technical and creative challenges. And when the event is as high profile as the Super Bowl, which combines a football game, a half-time show worthy of Broadway, and an audience of hundreds of millions, the stakes are even higher.

Little time has passed since the Panasonic AF100 became the first large (micro 4/3-inch) sensor video camera priced under $19K, triggering a succession of similarly priced large-sensor cinema cameras.

RED Digital recently debuted the SCARLET X, with a Super 35mm sensor that’s identical to the sensor of the RED EPIC, minus the extra digital signal processing that boosts its capabilities and price significantly.
