Having four more cameras indicates the production staff wants to be able to have multiple views at all times for reactive purposes on all the different focuses in the room. Maybe that’s audience members, personalities in the audience, anybody leading the effort.
The extra cameras will make for better team coverage and provide for the ability to capture an incredible moment. Three cameras limits you to what you can visually see and take in as a viewer. You want multiple angles to be able to better tell this emotional story.
