Super Bowl 50 will showcase next-generation technology from CBS Sports, featuring a new EyeVision 360 replay system that offers football fans a 360-degree viewpoint.
The new replay system is made up of 36 cameras that will be positioned around California's Levi's Stadium, CBS Sports
reported, offering the ability to freeze the play.
"It allows viewers to have a look in a moment's time from what the quarterback sees in the pocket to the safety's perspective or other points on the field," said CBS.
Along with EyeVision, CBS will make Super Bowl history by filming with 5K cameras with Pylon Cam technology and audio.
"The eight high-resolution, high-definition, point-of-view cameras housed inside the pylons also will have microphones embedded in them to enhance the natural sound of the game," said CBS, adding "We love Pylon Cams around these parts. Can't wait for that."
All the latest technology at the Feb. 7 game will be even more impressive if football fans watch a replay of the first Super Bowl game to be aired for the first time ever on Friday at 8 p.m. EST. The game won't be complete because after Super Bowl I aired, all tapes were erased of the Green Bay Packers beating the Kansas City Chiefs, Yahoo Sports
But NFL Films had tape of the game and has "cobbled together" the show that will be on Friday, Yahoo Sports said.
Actually, a tape of the original broadcast exists. And that tale of the tape is equal parts intriguing and maddening. An unnamed person in Pennsylvania has a copy of the original broadcast and he or she brought it to Paley Center for Media in New York to check it out.
The person who owns the tape wants $1 million for it, which so far, the NFL has refused to pay, offering a lower amount.
