FOX SUPER BOWL XLVIII BROADCAST CENTER
FOX Sports recently commissioned a three-story broadcast center in Times Square for their Super Bowl XVIII broadcast. Production Resource Group, L.L.C. (PRG) completed construction of the structure in late January despite dismal New York weather conditions.
PRG lighting designer Bobby Allen used the Cineo TruColor HS throughout the facility. The Broadcast Center served as the broadcast base of the network’s Super Bowl coverage, including their live game day broadcast.
Standing at 65 feet, the Broadcast Center has been certified by the Times Square Alliance as the tallest non-permanent structure ever erected in Times Square. The fully functional, environmentally conscious broadcast facility boasts 8,100 square feet of usable space, a mini Astroturf football field on the roof, and a spot for Cleatus, FOX Sport’s sixteen-foot animated robot.
