Philips AmbiLux uses nine pico projectors to shine colour on your walls
The benefits of some television technology is obvious the moment you hear about it. Take, for example, 4K Ultra HD. A super high-resolution screen for eye-searing detail? Great. Want it.
By comparison, the appeal of some TV technology isn’t so apparent – at least until you see it in action. Take the Philips Ambilight and AmbiLux systems, which use colour projection to create a more immersive viewing experience.
Here’s how they work. Ambilight sets project a ‘halo’ of light and colour onto the wall behind your television, which blends in with the picture on the screen to create a sharper viewing experience.
AmbiLux is the ultimate expression of that concept. It uses nine pico projectors to splash moving colours that match what’s appearing on your screen on to your otherwise boring wall. It’s designed to help draw you into what’s happening on your screen.
It sounds interesting. Really, it does. It just doesn’t sound… essential. But, we wager, that’s only because you haven’t seen it in action. Once you’ve experienced what Ambilight or AmbiLux can do, you’ll understand. And you’re likely to want it.
Experience Ambilight and AmbiLux
Handily, we can help. We’re holding a special event at a secret venue in North London on Wednesday April 20, 2016, for a select number of readers. Those in attendance will get the chance to experience the latest and most demanding movies, gaming, music and sport on a range of high-end Philips televisions - including a number of top Ambilight models and the firm’s new top-end, 65-inch 4K UHD AmbiLux set. We’ll even throw in some food and drink!
As an added bonus, one attendee will get the chance to win one of Philips’ range-topping 65-inch UHD AmbiLux televisions worth around £4000 - which is a pretty cool extra for spending the night at a fun event in the first place.
How to enter
For a chance to be invited to the event, all you need to do is tell us what your favourite thing to watch on a big-screen television is. The big game? Blockbuster movies (or film noir to really challenge the black levels)? Your favourite racing game? Or just the latest drama series?
