The NBA did its best rim-rocking jams in HD, in part due to equipment supplied by Leitch Technology. The National Basketball Association's "All-Star Jam Session," held Feb. 12-16 in Los Angeles, made extensive use of Leitch equipment during the temporary basketball "theme park" that spread over an area of 350,000 square feet.

Some of the Leitch equipment used for this event included Leitch's Panacea router, the Juno upconverter and a variety of HD distribution amplifiers.

"We knew that it would be exciting and challenging to produce the 'All-Star Jam' in HD," said Mike Rokosa, director of engineering for NBA Entertainment. "We relied on Leitch for its support because we knew [the company is] a key player in the HDTV market."
