Lights on the Mosconi Cup Table - 12-04-2014, 10:18 PM

The table at the Mosconi Cup was super fast and the cue ball seemed to bounce shorter on the rails. Television lighting set-ups always seem to dry out the table, this one seemed even more so.

The table had lighting underneath. It's common for Europe to use high intensity discharge lamps which would make the ballast HID. As I understand, HID ballasts are opposite of electronic ballasts and are very hot. The energy goes to the ballast instead of emitting from the lamp.

So could the ballast heat up enough to heat the slate, like many carom tables? And would this contribute to a fast table?
