While 10 NBA teams now use DLP rear-projection modules from ANC Sports Enterprises as courtside displays, the New York Knicks are the first to use the company’s new LED modules. Built by Mitsubishi, the panels are thinner and have better viewing angles than the bulkier DLP models.

Note that these are true LED displays, where individual LEDs are used to create the image on the screen. This is different from the “LED TVs” being marketed by some companies such as Samsung and LG, which are LCD TVs that just use LEDs as a backlight.
