After having brought a new TV just a few month back, I have decided to start on new project.
Even though the TV is quite large with its 60” screen size, I miss the immersive feeling I had using my projector the last couple of years. After browsing the web for ideas on how to provide an even better, more immersive experience, I stumbled across something called ambilight.
Ambilight, short for “ambient lighting”, is a lighting system for televisions developed by Philips. Ambilight creates light effects around the television that correspond to the video content. Philips claims that a “more immersive viewing experience” can result. Ambilight is a lighting system that actively adjusts both brightness and color based upon picture content. Integrated into the television cabinet, Ambilight technology is aimed to enable the viewer to see more picture detail, contrast and color while eliminating on-screen reflections. Source: Wikipedia
Sadly, LG does not offer this feature on their TVs, so I have to build my own!
Stay tuned for more, images and videos!
