Philips Aurea Tv: Ambilight Gets an Overhaul

Philips Aurea Tv: Ambilight Gets an Overhaul
Philips Ambilight technology has been around for a few years now, providing flat-panel televisions with color-enhanced ambient backlighting. While placing lights behind of television screens has long been known to improve perceived contrast ratios and decrease eyestrain, Ambilight’s color-cycling was always a bit more superflous in my opinion.
