Ambilight and AmbiLux are both based on the same idea. The idea is “How can we enhance the television experience with light?” With Ambilight, we are doing this with providing a soft halo with colors, with motion, with dynamics around the television and with AmbiLux, we are taking the exact same idea but then to the maximum.
When talking about the difference between Ambilight and AmbiLux: Ambilight: you really put LEDs at the edge of your TV. AmbiLux: you put projectors at the back of your TV but more to the center. Result is with Ambilight you have a halo around your TV which can change color according to whatever is on the screen.
With AmbiLux, you have the projectors, so that means you can project in a much wider space but also higher resolution, so you can really put the motion of whatever is on the screen also in your halo.
The effect is seamless, of course, that’s what we had to accomplish. The effect of the nine projectors: you need to forget that they are nine. They make one big image that is seamlessly stitched together.
So, it’s all there to make a better experience, It is meant to immerse you into the screen, it’s meant to support your television viewing. And this is unique to Philips Television. It’s even more so that your rim of your TV is starting to really disappear and you see your entire wall as a moving image instead of just a TV.
I would definitely want one!
