its made/distributed by Antec, and I got mine at Amazon for 20 dollars or so..
uses adhesive to the back of the tv? not sure i want to do that...
Don't worry - mine was on my last TV for over a year and when I sold the TV I just peeled it off and used a little alcohol to remove the small amount of residue. Couldn’t see where it had been after that.
I found the best position on my 65 inch screen was about one third the way down from the top. Use a little Scotch tape first to tack it temporarily in position and experiment with it to see which gives you the best result. When you have decided where it looks best to you, then peel off the backing and press it into place.
It will only work in a dark room?
check this out...
DO NOT CHECK THIS OUT. SORRY...FALSE ALARM...
it works exactly like windows media player and will not stream 4k content to our tv at 24 frames per second.
I bought the program and they are now refunding it.
I'm using a 40w incandescent vanity bulb behind my TV against a yellow wall. I've been on record stating that I don't care if it gives an ISF calibrator a stroke. It works fantastically! A blank white wall might be a better candidate for a 25w, but heck. It's far from a finesse operation. :)
What i do is this.
I browse for content on you tube with my pc. The tv "you tube app" sucks...it's slow and the you tube app on the tv has very little content compared to the REAL internet.
Get a free program called 4k downloader. It will download from you tube at the resolution you specify to your pc.
Place all the downloaded content into Windows media player.
Your tv will see the windows media player and you can play any video back onto your tv...
You can change settings to vivid or whatever you want whilst watching too...You ca also play simulated 3d..
I watch music videos in simulated 3d.
Windows media player only accepts 1080. You cannot put native 4k into it.
you're right, me too on my 55 I noticed the lines. but only with standard settings on sd channels or settings for very bright images.. after setting the parameters found on a specialized website, I have no more noticed them.. but it's right, it's easier to see them on a 55 than on a 65..
Common belief, but I maintain that what you said is complete overkill. Carefully targeting a particular color temperature light source does you absolutely no good unless you understand the reflectance characteristics of the wall. Especially in my case where my wall is yellow.
And even if your wall is leaving the bias light color temperature alone it's job is to partially close the iris (room lighting cannot do this properly because it'll raise the likelihood of specular reflectance showing up in the screen, and light directly striking the LCD array), and unless the color is absurdly pronounced, it will not distort the color coming directly from the TV.
You are entitled to your opinion. I am no expert when it comes to color temperature, I rely on what I read from people who I consider more knowledgeable. I am sure that the 6500K recommendation is a general one, and that under certain conditions a different color temperature might be more appropriate. However, my recommendation was meant to apply in general.
For example, here is a quote from the CinemaQuest web site:
"The CRI of most types of light lamps is referenced to the spectral content of a standard element heated to a certain temperature on the Kelvin scale. Illuminants rated at 5000 Kelvins and higher are referenced to natural daylight at varying times of day. Our video monitor luminaires are rated at 6500 Kelvins. This color of white light is the same as that displayed on a correctly calibrated TV set. Using 6500K ambient lighting in a video viewing environment preserves accurate color perception of images on the screen." (http://www.cinemaquestinc.com/ideal_lume.htm).
From the Antec web site:
There are quite a few additional quotes I could provide. Just search "bias lighting".
