Court Side Suites, NJ Nets 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.

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
