[via press release from CBS]

NEW CRIME SOLVING TECHNOLOGY UNVEILED ON CBS NEWS' "48 HOURS MYSTERY" -- SATURDAY, NOV. 12

Broadcast Teams with France's Premiere Technology Company, Total Immersion, to Bring Viewers a Virtual Murder Scene and Marks the First-Time Use of Total Immersion's Technology in the Broadcast Industry

CBS News' 48 HOURS MYSTERY has teamed with France's premier technology company, Total Immersion, to bring viewers a virtual murder scene for its broadcast that will be broadcast, Saturday, Nov. 12 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). This broadcast marks the first-time use of Total Immersion's technology in the broadcast industry.

"Total Immersion's unique technology takes us into a new generation of crime reporting. Being able to interact with a three dimensional digital model -- recreating the murder scene that we cannot access -- helps us explain the complexity of the crime," says Susan Zirinsky, Executive Producer, 48 HOURS MYSTERY. "The sophistication of this technology and its ability to dissect what happened where and to who will be an incredibly useful tool to both forensic investigators and those of us who report on crimes."

Using crime scene photographs, aerial photography, blueprints of the house and diagrams, 48 HOURS MYSTERY editors created 3D animations and models of the exterior and the interior of the murder scene that took place in March 1999. Karen Tipton was brutally murdered at the home she shared with her husband, Dr. David Tipton, in Decatur, Ala. Karen's blood and many forensic clues were left throughout the large house.

"Despite the fact that we did not have access to the crime scene, this remarkable technology will enable viewers to understand the crime as it happened. This is the first time such tools have been seen on television, but certainly not the last," says CBS News Technologist, Daniel Dubno.

Using Total Immersion software, the Tipton house model was projected holographically in a virtual set as Crime Scene Reconstructionist Bob Tressel and Correspondent Erin Moriarty carefully revisited the scene of the crime. This unique depiction provides viewers with an unprecedented visual understanding of the forensic clues to the murder.

Intel Corporation provided considerable hardware and technical assistance to make this unprecedented visualization possible.
