We saw a project earlier this month that worked like an Ambilight system but this open source Light-Pack USB Ambient Lighting System seems to have much better effects. And since it’s open source you can get all of the info you need to make your own. I can’t wait till there is a system that doesn’t requite a computer to process the image.

“The software analyses the image on your monitor and transfers its data by USB to the Ligthpack board. This board lights the surface behind a monitor, TV or laptop by means of RGB LEDs of the corresponded colors.”

    There is something fundamentally wrong with Ambilight projects.
    This one is the worst offender – effectively recducing the color saturation of the viewed image.
    Where the concdpt came from was in professional studios, where it is required to maintain a neutral color ambience – that the viewer could assess the rendered image in repeatable circumstances for color hue and context.

    O, nowadays, most image editing is done in sunlit rooms on non-ca

    There is something fundamentally wrong with Ambilight type projects unless they come from the ‘physics behind electronically displayed images’..

    This one (matching the image content) is the worst offender – effectively recducing the color saturation of the viewed image.
    Where the backlighting concept came from – was in professional studios, where it is required to maintain a neutral color ambience – that the viewer could assess the rendered image in repeatable circumstances for color hue and context.

    OK, nowadays, most image editing is done in sunlit rooms on non-calibrated displays – with no regard for the subjective viewing spaces where the ambient color temperature will /ever/ resemble the shooting or image processing spaces.

    What’s this new crop of ‘ambilight gadgets’ for? Architectural / interior-design purposes. That’s’ fine – as long as everyone knows that it does absolutely nothing to improve the viewing quality or experience – unless by some incredibly small chance you’ve run across a team of skilled ‘professionals’ operating the set, lighting, camera, image processing and display/viewing setups.

    That’s just a fact – no other way to explain it.
    I’m not trying to be a perfectionist or an old-fart – most things in technology that have brought us this far came from a real need… not just to look good. Both can co-exist if anyone takes the time to understand the fundamentals.

    Curious what kind of processing power/memory is used to run the utility. I run my TV through a media pc so I have the hardware, just curious how this effects performance.
