The broadcast consists of five cameras (Canon XL2 is the model used).  There are four stationary camera locations. The 5th camera is hooked up to a wireless pack, roams around the stadium, and operated on shoulder.  Videographers will also operate the instant replay machines.

Responsibilities include updating graphics before the game as well as operating the graphics machine in-game and post-game. Another responsibility will be to play all broadcast videos, including packages and commercials.
