ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - There are some high-tech pylons marking the end zones at the College Football Playoff championship game.

ESPN is using “pylon cameras” during Monday night’s broadcast. There are two wireless cameras in the pylons in each of the four corners of the end zone, 16 extra cameras in all.

Ed Placey, a senior coordinating producer for the network, says the cameras provide extra angles for viewers to see, and can be utilized by officials in the case of replay reviews and challenges.

The technology was tested during the network’s broadcast of the Football Championship Subdivision title game Saturday.

The pylon cameras are positioned to film the goal lines, sideline boundaries on each side and the back of the end zone.
