Nowadays, many mid-to-high-end TV models offer home cinema enthusiasts a reasonably high screen resolution and very good picture quality. However, there are some TV lighting solutions that can help accentuate the contrast between the darker and brighter tones of the TV picture on screen. One such solution is TV backlighting, also referred to as “bias lighting”. Unlike regular lighting, TV backlights are basically LED light strips that are installed on the back side of the TV to provide a soft light source that illuminates the wall or surface behind or around the TV screen. This creates some additional lighting behind the TV screen, making it easier and less demanding on your eyes to notice the contrast between dark and bright tones, which not only helps reduce eye strain when watching TV in a dark room, but also helps prevent headaches. Now, although this technology is not entirely new, as some TV models from popular TV manufacturing brands have this function built into them, the price of these TVs is simply not justified. So, if you are looking for a TV bias lighting solution that is not only affordable, but also easy to install, configure and operate, Govee Envisual TV Backlight T2 is a great choice for you.

The kit’s LED light strip is only 0.47 inches (12 mm) wide, so it won’t take up much space when mounted to the back of the TV, and features 60 high-intensity RGBIC LED light beads per 3.28 feet (1 m), plus a separate control chip Small compact per 3 LED light beads, which is exactly what makes it possible for all 216 high intensity RGBIC LED light beads to match the colors displayed in the TV screen. With great accuracy and in real time.
Finally, we also have the high-end dual-camera module of the bunch, which has now been upgraded with a second camera lens as it’s based on the original model (which had only one camera lens), allowing it to select the color schemes of the content playing on the screen in different areas if it Your TV screen is faster and with 40% more resolution than the original model (Govee Envisual TV Backlight T1).

Finally, both the color sync LED strip and dual camera module need to be attached to the Smart Control Box, which you will also stick to the back side of your TV screen with some of the double sided sticky tape provided in the package.
