The LiveLight Project
Free Dynamic Backlightning Solution
People around the world have been building their own versions of the Philips Ambilight system, usually connected to a computer via USB or serial port. I started developing my own version and afted months of designing and testing I was ready to publish my prototype: The LiveLight USB Interface. Project soon got a lots of intrest on forums and related websites. The LiveLight Project was born...

Dynamic backlighting reduces eyestrain, visibility of LCD backlight leaks of and it greatly enhances pictures color, contrast and size appearance.

Easy to build
LiveLight is designed to be built by end-user. For this task you will need basic tools, tweezers, soldering iron and AVR ISP programmer. Little electronics know-how would also be helpful. You can order circuitboards online or you can make it yourself, design is freely available!
When everyone has access to source materials of a product, it can easily be built to match someones personal tastes and spesifications. ISP Programmable hardware makes programming easy and helps further sofware developement.
LiveLight is the best homebrew ambilight system that I have ever came across. Why you should pay over 500$ extra for a good dynamic backlighting in a TV when you can build better, fully user-configurable system for much cheaper yourself.
