BRANTFORD, ONTARIO – (PRESS RELEASE) — 05/25/12 – The Ottawa Rink of Dreams is a 12,500-square-foot refrigerated ice surface located at Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West. The project was made possible by a partnership between the Ottawa Senators, the Sens Foundation, the City of Ottawa and the Hockey Canada Foundation with contributions from other sponsors and construction companies.
The rink’s boards are clear acrylic laced with colourful LED lights that glow in patterns. The LED lighting system, designed by ProQuip International, uses a strip lighting circuit to drive the multi-coloured LED lights at different rates. The LED system is able to illuminate from one colour in all panels to a mix of more than 128 colours among the panels. Pulsing and fading sequences can be programmed and the system can even be modulated to music.
Here are a few links to see the rink lights, learn more about the project and its positive impact on the community:
