Christmas comes and in addition to illuminating our trees today we want to offer you the opportunity to illuminate our screens to the rhythm of the images with the ambiscreen system. This device catches our attention because it is a totally autonomous LED backlight system that supports up to 4K resolutions at 60 fps. A very interesting option because we do not need any configuration or intermediate complications that as we have seen in other systems at the end leave you without support.
The ambiscreen system is based on a TV-Box that we can connect directly to the TV or connect to another device to take that input signal, supports connections up to HDMI 2.0 with support for resolutions 4K UHD 60Hz (3840×2160 @ 60Hz YUV 4:4:4) with HDCP 2.2 / 1.4 protocol (requires a splitter sold separately) something necessary for example for Netflix 4K, it is also compatible with Dolby TrueHD audio, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio.
Inside the TV-Box ambiscreen we have an ARM Quad core processor up to 1.2 GHz undefined, we have an HDMI connector, USB 2.0 and Ethernet port, curiously it seems that it has an active fan although according to the data it is silent (18dB). It has an own operating system with which we can interact from a browser and has API for advanced users that allows us to make changes, we can also connect to the hardware using an Android or iOS app to use lighting offline.
- The price of the ambiscreen with a strip of LEDs of 5 meters is $179 plus shipping cost, the 4K splitter sells separately at a price of $29. For now it seems that it is exhausted after a first remittance although it is possible that is available soon.
- If we want an economical solution we can always opt for static lighting with a led strip with remote control to turn on, turn off and change the color as we want, we have several models on Aliexpress.com and Amazon.com, from only $10.
