What was DreamScreen?
DreamScreen was a Smart TV Lighting Kit where LEDs behind your TV react to what you are watching! Creating dynamic ambilight they would change colors to what was happening on your screen.
With DreamScreen dead there are many more alternatives now on the market. Philips Hue have released Hue Sync as an app and also HDMI box so you can sync your TV with your Hue lights.
The Hue Sync HDMI Box allows you to connect up to 4 HDMI devices to this box which then has an output to your TV, this allows it to set the colors of your Hue lights in your home and around your TV. You can use Hue Plays bars attached to your TV or the new Hue Gradient Light strips designed for this purpose and creating LED lighting behind the TV.
This responsive TV backlighting is great, Hue lead the way with home smart lighting and with entertainment areas built into the app creating ambilight lighting behind your tv is now simple and easy.
There are lots of other Hue Sync alternatives you can see here, many are cheaper but although not so good are good value.
