I have an LED tv. Bias lighting just about mitigates the main advantage OLED tv has, contrast levels. I know it's only perception, but then so is just about everything. The reverse is not true. It is not possible to increase the maximum brightness of a tv.Another advantage of surrounding the screen with light is that it improves the perceived contrast of the display
I have them Luminoodle ones will the back light increase the contrast no. The perception miby and the clam is with the correct white level from Bias lighting you can increase or have the perception of contrast improvements. The problem with that it becomes to bright and adds stress to the eye's with the levels needed. What i find at the correct back light setting the viewing is very pleasant takes the strain of the eye's on Evenings & Night viewing.
I have the same. They are not D65, they are 6000 Kelvin but they do a great job for me.I've also use a Luminoodle. They claim that their LED Lightstrip is D65 but has anyone measured how accurate it is?
Yeah mine are about 1.5 inches from the edge and I also only did 3 sides.
Out of interest how do you select 6500K on the Hue? I use "Energise" setting as to me that looks the closest to the luminoodle IMOI also found the luminoodle too bright . Have now got Hue Lightstrip for 3 sides (2m + 1m extension). Can set to 6500k and other colours and control via my Harmony Remote
They're only 2m so depending on size of your TV if it will cover all 4 sides.Bought a very cheap modular light strip from Ikea a while back (I think less than £10) and its worked well for several years, white seems a good balance and not too bright. Had an old "remote" mains plug with radio remote from Maplins (remember them?) so its easily "off and onnable". If I wanted to upgrade to a more wrap around solution (its only along the top at the mo) I might look at these which I think can be powered direct from the TV?
download an app called Yonomi. You can set 6500K via here. Then once your light is set, open the Hue app and save current light setting as a new scene.Out of interest how do you select 6500K on the Hue? I use "Energise" setting as to me that looks the closest to the luminoodle IMO
If you have a ladder to reach the top edge then sure, it'll be possible.I really want to get one of the MediaLights, particularly after reading this article, but my TV is wall mounted (LG 65C9) with about 7cm between the back of the panel and the wall, around the edges where the light would go. Does anyone with experience know whether it will be possible to fit the light strips without having to remove the TV from the wall (I just can’t face that)?
