The technology of Super Bowl 55: payments with mobile

For another year, the sports world pauses to fully look at one of the events of the year: Super Bowl LV. We’re in the 55th edition with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chief. But we are not going to focus on the performance of both teams to reach the final, we leave you behind with the American football teammates for that. Today we tell you what Super Bowl LV’s technology is.

The most “contactless” SuperBowl

Last year was the last Super Bowl in which fans bought their seats to watch the game. The presence of COVID 19 has meant that all seats at the “Ray Jay” Stadium are not occupied this year, and we say so because there will be a personal audience. They would buy their ticket online and it will be one of the 14,500 seats available. There will also be no less than 7,500 health workers.

But everyone present must take into account the stadium measures to avoid possible contamination. For this reason, the use of cash for purchases in the stadium is prohibited. This way, only the use of the smartphone or a contactless card is allowed and can be used up to a limit of $ 500.

Audiovisual display from all angles

Not all fans will get the chance to go to Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where the Super Bowl LV will be held. Built in 1996, the stadium will feature unparalleled technology to broadcast the event. The CBS chain will lead the broadcast to the world and will have no fewer than 120 cameras capturing every movement of the meeting.

Among the lenses they will be using will be four flying cameras, 31 responsible for recording the pieces in slow motion, 18 mechanical cameras, two line cameras to see the game down to the millimeter and 32 cameras set on the pivots. that mark the line of play. touchdown. But there are two types of sensors that are especially important: on the one hand, there will be cameras with 4K resolution and up to 8K so that no detail is missed. The other big novelty is the trolley camera, which closely follows a moving action. Despite the quality of the cameras, however, the broadcast will be in FullHD.
