American Idol is the latest show to be filmed with the iPhone. A kit of three iPhone 11 Pros will be sent to each of the judges, Techcrunch reported.
Apple is one of the technology companies working with production houses, bringing iPhone platforms into the hands of producers and hosts. The list includes a park and recreation gathering, night shows by Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon, and an old talent show, American Idol. The ABC show’s producers send studio montages to all contestants and judges to make the final episodes of the season. It’s a three-camera configuration, including three iPhone 11 Pros, a tripod and a ring light. The production team assists in the configuration and mounting of the camera at a safe distance from the house.
