If you want to save the money for a new, larger television and still want to have the impression of a larger TV picture, there is now a solution: Ambilight for retrofitting. With its immersion kit, the provider Govee LED ensures that the color of the screen is synchronized with a light strip attached to the back of the television, so that the image is subjectively perceived as enlarged. So the picture of a 55 inch TV feels like that of a 65 inch TV – and that of a 65 inch like that of a giant TV over 70 inches. Film evenings with James Bond, sports broadcasts, but also gaming sessions with Gran Turismo 7 are even more fun. And at a great price-performance ratio – i.eThanks to a discount campaign, the Govee Immersion Kit is currently available on Amazon for 70 euros.
Govee Immersion: Ambilight for retrofitting
The Ambilight for retrofitting Govee LED uses a 1080p ColorSense camera that captures the colors on the TV or monitor and applies them with lighting effects on a lightstrip, of course in real time. Govee Immersion thus ensures a more intensive gaming or film experience and a subjectively perceived enlargement of the TV screen.
installation and operation
Govee Immersion’s self-adhesive LED strip is attached to the edges of the back of the TV. Included are 2x 70 cm and 2x 120 cm, which is perfect for 55 inch or 65 inch TVs. The ColorSense camera, which is also included, is attached to the TV frame or placed in the middle under the TV. The LED strip can be controlled with the Govee Home app, voice control via Alexa and Google Home Kit is also supported. With 12 scene modes, you can set how calm or dynamic the lighting effects should appear, as well as the brightness. Thanks to the integrated microphone, there is also a music mode with which the smart LED strip lights up after the sound of the TV.

There is an alternative for smaller screens from 27 to 45 inches, namely the Govee Flow Pro Lightbar.
