How CBS will cover the Super Bowl

Trade journal Broadcasting & Cable has an interestingly geeky story about all the video hardware CBS is Tvfootball throwing at the Super Bowl next month. And if the game comes down to a field goal, we're gonna have a great look:

CBS will also use a new tracking system from Sportvision, which provides the ubiquitous virtual first-down line, to analyze close field goals. The system draws a virtual line extending up from each goalpost and provides a vertical look of whether the football crossed the plane of the goal post itself. “If a ball is kicked right over the goal post, you can see if it is really in or not,” [CBS Sports honcho Don] Aagaard says.
