I built an ambilight mounting behind my projector screen to sort of replicate the philips experience. This is obviously for people that do not put up their screen when not in use. I thought I would be putting the screen up way back when first building the cinema. I was even looking at electric screens, but the fact is we never put it up. In fact I will be getting screen material down the line and building my own screen frame. That’s the reason I used the LEDs all the way around the frame. The effect works well I think. It works best for TV and light viewing. I find it slightly distracting during movies.
All that’s needed include:
5.2 meters of 5/8inch (16mm) wood. I used crap but free pallet wood.
A 5 meter smd5050 led strip with IR controller.
A roll of duck tape, sellotape, wall plugs and screws, tin foil, glue,
Some sort of thin board.
Plastic tiling edging. get it in any DIY store.
