"CBSSports.com will deliver an unprecedented multi-media experience for Super Bowl XLVII," said Jim Lanzone, president of CBS Interactive, in a statement. "We have developed a deeply integrated second-screen environment that perfectly complements the television broadcast of the game, from the pre-game show to the presentation of the Lombardi Trophy."
Additional camera angles will include: a camera angle providing a high, full-field view from the 50-yard line showing all players on the field; a fan choice camera that will move during the game based on a producer's choices or the results of audience polls; a sideline camera angle providing field-level views; and a cable camera angle for aerial views.
Other features of "The Super Bowl on CBSSports.com" include: a pop-up, browser-based video console optimized for laptops, desktops, and tablets offering CBS Sports' broadcast coverage of the game; DVR features to pause and rewind events during the game; deep social integration with Twitter feeds and other social media features; an interactive gallery of the Super Bowl commercials; and extensive statistics and game highlights.
