At a meeting with the press today in New York, CBS Sports announced its plans to cover Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.
On the technical side CBS will employ super high speed cameras for clear replay use as well as special cameras with super high definition capability. The network will also use a system to simultaneously play back, in sync, six camera angles at once on a split screen.
CBS will begin its game day coverage at 11:00am ET.
From CBS PR, here is a look at the preliminary schedule:
11:00 AM, ET: ROAD TO THE SUPER BOWL—ROAD TO THE SUPER BOWL is NFL Films’ annual look back at the greatest sights and sounds of the 2012 NFL season. Culled by NFL Films producers, the one-hour special features the best of nearly 100 players and coaches wired for sound, focusing on the most exciting moments and the best teams on the journey to New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII. Original orchestral music was once again used in producing the show. ROAD TO THE SUPER BOWL debuted following the 1969 season.

1:00 PM, ET: PHIL SIMMS ALL-IRON TEAM: SUPER BOWL EDITION sponsored by GEICO—A true Football Lovers show, CBS Sports’ lead NFL analyst and former N.Y. Giants Super Bowl XXI MVP Phil Simms, and his broadcast partner, Jim Nantz, takes a look at some of the greatest stories in Super Bowl history. He will count down many of his favorite moments, including the top Catches, Blunders, Gambles and Runs in the history of the biggest game in sports. He also will delve deep into the history of the game, and tell the little known stories of the top assistant coaches, most unlikely heroes, players who should have been MVP, and the best teams never to win the Lombardi Trophy. Some of these great stories will be told by the players and coaches themselves. Bill Belichick, John Elway, Sean Payton, David Tyree, plus an unprecedented reunion for the first time ever of Leon Lett and Don Beebe, who shared in one of the most memorable plays in Super Bowl lore, will all be featured. [The All-Iron Trophy is an old fashioned iron emblematic of Simms’ obsession with ironing. According to his mother, as a child Phil pressed his football and baseball uniforms, and to this day remains committed to creases.]

In addition, CBS presents its new hit show, ELEMENTARY.
ELEMENTARY—stars Jonny Lee Miller as eccentric, mischievous detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson, a former surgeon turned sober companion. Following his fall from grace in London and a stint in rehab, Sherlock escapes to Manhattan where his wealthy father forces him to live with his worst nightmare – a sobriety coach. Now running free in New York solving crimes, it’s simple deduction that he’s going to need someone to keep him grounded, and it’s elementary that it’s a job for Watson. Also, Aidan Quinn stars as Capt. Thomas Gregson, who knows from previous experience working with Scotland Yard that Sherlock is brilliant at closing cases, along with Jon Michael Hill, who portrays Det. Marcus Bell, a top-notch investigator who is initially skeptical of Holmes and his unorthodox methods.
