Toyota Center Getting HD Overhaul

The Houston Rockets seem to be following a bit in Jerry Jones' footsteps.

The Toyota Center, home of the Rockets, has been undergoing renovations as the city and arena alike prepare for All-Star Weekend. The renovations include the largest high-definition video screens in any North American arena.

"We wanted to make sure we created a better experience," Rockets CEO Tad Brown said. "We think this is going to put us on another level."

The entire project -- from upgraded Wi-Fi to a new control room to run the video screen and game presentation -- will cost roughly $15 million.

Rockets' fans will certainly be pleased to hear this. A full list of the upgrades at the Toyota Center can be found after the jump.

Renovations include informational video boards in the corners of the arena; high-definition televisions throughout the concourses, suites and lounges; new carpet and tile; an overhaul and reconfiguration of the sound system; a new point-of-sale system at the concession stands; and a new marquee outside the building.

It looks like All-Star Weekend will leave a lasting impression with the Rockets, as these upgrades would not have happened if Houston wasn't playing host to the NBA's best.
