NBA and Tissot unveil new state-of-the-art shot clock and integrated timing system
The NBA and Tissot are launching a groundbreaking integrated timing system and new shot clock using LED glass technology, which will debut at the Samsung NBA Summer League opening on July 8th, 2016 and be installed in all 29 of the NBA’s arenas for the 2016-2017 season. This new shot clock design presented many challenges to the production process, which required the use of innovative technologies, extensive drafting and vigorous testing.
The integration of the new TISSOT shot clock and timing system marks the first time the league will use the same clocks and timing equipment across all 29 of its arenas. The clean, sleek shot clock is visibly free of cables and conductors and equipped with TISSOT’s LED glass, making the clock nearly transparent when in use and fully transparent while turned off. The various stages of production show the precision craftsmanship behind the technology of this new timing system.
