The sun may not always shine on TV, but the Illuminaire does. These tricked-out lighting strips are neatly designed to slot in behind your telly for instant backlighting effect.

It may not have the co-ordinated colour changing of Philips' built-in Ambilight system, but Illuminaire claims the mood lighting reduces eye-strain and adds a certain je ne sais quoi to an evening of Family Guy and The Mighty Boosh.

Several types are available in various sizes that either buzz a constant blue or white, or gently pulse through the full colour spectrum – all controlled by a handy (optional) remote.

The PLX312, for up to 32in screens, and the PLX318, for up to 60in giants, are the fully featured versions for rigging up to your home cinema. Click on the HiFiBitZ link below for the full illuminating range.
