HEYEPER ZOOM CAMERA SYSTEM HIGHLIGHTS CBS SPORTS' TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES FOR SUPER BOWL XLVII COVERAGE

When CBS Sports presents Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, Feb. 3 (6:00 PM, ET) from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, La. live on the CBS Television Network, highlighted among the technological advances that will be incorporated during its coverage is the high-speed "Heyeper Zoom" camera system.

· HEYEPER ZOOM CAMERA SYSTEM

CBS Sports is deploying six "Heyeper Zoom" high frame rate, 4K replay and zoom camera systems. "Heyeper Zoom" uses For-A-Corp's, FT-One, 4K cameras, equipped with Fujinon lenses and Evertz Corp's DreamCatcher record servers. The "Heyeper Zoom" replay system can capture video at a frame rate between 300-500 frames per second (normal 60 fps). The For-A cameras use 3840 by 2160 pixel imagers, totaling more than 8 million pixels, four times greater than current high-definition video. The Evertz DreamCatcher replay system records the 4K video signal allowing CBS Sports to use the full 4K resolution to zoom in on critical points of a play (i.e., foot inbounds, turnovers, etc.) for high-resolution review. The unique Evertz user interface allows an operator to quickly determine critical points of play and rapidly turn them around for on-air use. The entire system is being integrated and housed by NEP, Inc.

· MOSAIC

CBS Sports will have the ability to take up to six unique camera views and play them back simultaneously in-sync in either a quad-split, a three-way split or a two-way split depending on the context of the play. The Evertz Mosaic System will provide CBS Sports with these simultaneous views.

· HIGH-SPEED CAMERAS

THE SUPER BOWL ON CBS will feature five high-speed cameras that will be in hard and hand-held configurations located on the field, in the stands and on sideline carts. Each camera will have the ability to shoot 300-500 frames per second (normal cameras shoot 60 fps) in 1080i high definition format. These Ikegami/NAC's Hi-Motion II cameras are supplied by Fletcher and are particularly used in determining questionable calls on the field (i.e., fumbles, receptions, out-of-bounds, etc.) from all different angles.

· HIGH-TECH GRAPHICS

In addition to the regular first down line, available on CBS Sports' primary cameras throughout the 2012 NFL season, six other cameras will be calibrated with the first down line by SportsVision including Skycam and end zone cameras. As was done during the regular-season, EyeVision, supported by Redbee's Piero 3D analysis technology, will be utilized as a multi-dimensional tool for Phil Simms' analysis. Given the situation of a field goal or an extra-point conversion that passes above the goal posts, virtual extensions of the goal posts will also be added to determine the flight path of the ball and whether the kick was good or not. Super Bowl XLVII also will serve as the launch of a new comprehensive animation and insert graphics package. That same look will ultimately roll out on CBS Sports Network later in the year, further unifying the on-air branding of CBS Sports.

Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will call the play-by-play of SUPER BOWL XLVII, along with Steve Tasker and Solomon Wilcots reporting. Lance Barrow will produce and Mike Arnold will direct.

Sean McManus is Chairman, CBS Sports and serves as Executive Producer for the Network's coverage of the NFL and Super Bowl XLVII. Harold Bryant is Executive Producer and Vice President, Production, CBS Sports. Ken Aagaard is Executive Vice President, Engineering, Operations & Production Services, CBS Sports. Bruce Goldfeder is Vice President, Engineering, CBS Sports. Marla Schmettau is Director, Graphics, CBS Sports.
