IFA 2006: Philips introduces AmBx – Ambilight for gamers
Having sold nearly a million Ambilight TVs Philips is now rolling the facility out into the games arena with the launch of a 20inch display that boasts AmBX, aka Ambilight for smaller PC screens. AmBX works in a similar way to Ambilight in that it use ambient light delivered from around the screen to heighten the overall impact of the picture. The first game for the PC to feature dedicated Ambilight effects (ie to enhance explosions etc) will be Broken Sword 4. There’s a demo on the stand, so I’ll grab some video footage of the feature later.
