One way to help prevent eye strain while watching your favorite programs or playing your favorite video game on a smart TV is by lighting the area around and behind your television. It has been proven this helps raise the average ambient light in the room and lessen the strain on your eyes. It can also help increase your perception of the contrast on your smart TV’s screen. If you are a gamer, a binge watcher or just a causal TV viewer who wants a quality viewing or gaming experience, you really should consider getting a backlight or bias light. One company that makes a good backlight is Govee, a manufacturer of smart home devices.
Govee TV Backlights work with either 55-65 inch smart TVs or 75-85 inch televisionsGearBrain
Govee has a full line of backlights for TVs of all sizes. One of their best sellers is the DreamView TV 1 Backlights. They are perfect for gamers and movie nights in your home. They come with RGBIC colored lighting, a ColorSense 1080p HD camera, voice and app controls. And work with smart TVS sizes 55-65 inches as well as 75-85 inches.
GearBrain has tested backlights for smart TVs in the past, but we have not seen many of these devices with an HD camera. Govee DreamView comes with the ColorSense camera which is used to recognize and capture the colors on your television’s screen. This assists the backlights in knowing what colors are on your screen so it can extend the colors beyond your TV screen.
How do they extend the color beyond your TV screen? Govee DreamView comes with RGBIC lighting effects and works in tandem with the ColorSense camera to independently control its LED module and display multiple colors on your wall behind your TV at the same time. This is a unique feature we have not seen in other TV backlights.
