The Ambilight system is exclusive to Philips, although if we have another brand of TV we can install an external solution. Our alternative is the Govee Immersion TV LED Backlights with Camera we can buy through Amazon.
With this accessory kit we can have a complete backlight system with RGBIC technology in any TV between 55-65 inches. A system that has as a central element a camera that is placed at the top of our TV and captures the lighting and colors on screen in order to adapt the LED lighting of the strips that we have previously installed on the perimeter of our TV. This way we can have lighting on DRM-protected streamings such as Netflix, HBO or Prime Video.
A system that requires a good job when configuring it to get good results, although we will always have a small delay or even minimal, since the technology used through the camera is not instantaneous. The best alternative to get the best results is always to opt for a TV with Android and Philips Ambilight, since its system is native.
