HILLSIDE, NJ, AUGUST 14, 2007 — Wireworks, the leading innovator of audio/video cabling systems, was recently commissioned by the NJ Nets to create custom breakout boxes that would provide power, video feed and statistics to three separate courtside suites located at the Continental Airlines Arena.
The box assemblies were created to provide an easy set-up assembly, as the system is disconnected after each game and put aside, making durability a major factor. These sets provide power and two separate video feeds to the 16 televisions set up on three corners of the court at each game. The boxes needed special video splitting systems for each feed and breakout boxes along the length of the assembly to play video and provide in-game statistics. This feature gives courtside recipients an enhanced game experience, by being able to watch the television for instant replays and statistics throughout the game. more
