TBS Gets 3.7 Overnight For Cardinals-Dodgers NLCS Game 3 Up Against "MNF"
Published October 15, 2013
A MATTER OF TRUSS: In L.A., Tom Hoffarth notes TBS' Truss Cam has been "a new visual tool to capture a different view" of the game. California-based Pictorvision "engineered the stabilized device." It takes two operators "stationed in the center-field scaffolding to make it work, and then it’s up to TBS game director Lonnie Dale to figure out how it works into the telecast." The Truss Cam was "one of 36 cameras used by TBS" during yesterday's NLCS Game 3. If MLB "implements a replay system, a camera like this could add the definitive replay to a challenged call if used in the ballpark during a telecast" (L.A. DAILY NEWS, 10/15).
