About the article

Surround Light

The analogue approach

Surround Light

The operating principle consists of measuring the average colour of an image and using colour LEDs to emit the same colour in order to ‘paint’ an impression of the image on the background behind the screen. This generates a more intense experience, creates a visual point of reference, and produces refined mood lighting. The target audience for this product consists of voracious gamers.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
