Television viewers also benefit from the new lighting, because TV cameras can now bring the sport into nicer focus with razor-sharp slow motion images. Thanks to the new lighting, skating fans in Thialf and at home can enjoy top skating, and it looks as if you are sitting right next to the rink. This lighting provides great ambiance and an optimal experience.
Philips has equipped Thialf with balanced rink lighting with energy-efficient LED lamps and lamps with infrared in the spectrum. They make the ice even faster in competitions, by warming the top layer a fraction. All other rooms in the stadium are also equipped with LED lighting, which contributes toward the realization of the sustainability goals of Thialf.
