CLÁSICO BROADCAST: In Madrid, J.F. Maldonado reported ahead of Sunday's Barcelona-Real Madrid match, Canal+, which had the exclusive rights to the broadcast in Spain, was scheduled to use 28 cameras for the broadcast, "including 'Superslow' and high-speed cameras and one elevated camera traveling 70 meters alongside the pitch." Victor Santamaria of Canal+ said, "We are going to move one camera which in theory does not move during a game. This will make the image that accompanies the game move as it does in video games" (AS, 3/23). In Barcelona, Esther Blasco reported Mediapro, which broadcast Barcelona's 4-3 win outside Spain, "used 300 employees and 22 cameras for the broadcast." One of its "new additions was the use of 4K (Ultra HD) technology." A total of 700 journalists and 200 outlets from five continents "were credentialed for the match" (SPORT, 3/23).
