Antec Launches Ambient-like Lighting for Monitors

No Comment 27 Views

Antec is continuing the diversification of their hardware products with a new LED bias lighting system (on top of their core colling and PC chassis and recently announced speakers).

Antec LED monitor halo.

By now everyone has been an AmBX demo where the lights around the monitor mirror the action on the screen to bring a more immersive experience right? This 6-LED bias system is similar except that it’s just white light and it’s aimed at reducing eye strain and fatigue instead of increasing immersion.

The halo 6 LED bias lighting kit is an affordable option for outfitting PC monitors with professional-grade backlighting. This helps reduce eye fatigue and increase image clarity during long gaming sessions and similar periods of extended computer use.

The bias lighting illumination technique adds a ring of white backlight to PC monitors, reducing eyestrain caused by differences in picture brightness from scene changes in movies, TV shows and video games. The soundscience halo 6 LED bias lighting kit’s USB-powered LED strip (14.6” / 370 mm in length) attaches to the back of the monitor and complements any PC monitor up to 24”. The color and brightness of the LEDs are carefully calibrated and help increase a monitor’s perceived contrast ratio – enhancing perceived black levels, vibrant colors and picture detail by enabling dark adapted viewing. 

It really just sounds like a string of lights that you plug into your USB port and hang on the back of your monitor, doesn’t it? What about people with monitors larger than 24"? Well, it seems you are out of luck. I’m not altogether sold on the idea, so we will get a unit and do some testing and a review.
