    Hi,

    I have Hyperion setup behind my 120 inch project screen , but since its a pull down screen , I currently have the LED strip mounted on the wall , but when I pull the screen up , the strips dont look that good , so to make it look better , I am thinking of using one of these profiles for the LED strips :

    https://www.amazon.com/LightingWill...8&sr=1-1-fkmr1&keywords=LED+profile+ambilight

    They cover for these profiles act as a diffuser also , so it gonna impact the Hyperion effects?/brightness? , has anyone tried this earlier , or any other options can folks suggest for how to install the LED strips behind the pull down screen?

    Thanks

    many users use those diffusors, i like them, with diffusors you get more smoother effects and colors

    My concern is that behind the projector screen , won't they kill the brightness and will it produce the desired ambient affect?

    if you buy those on the picture you can place the profile outwards that the leds will shine to the room and not at the projector screens back

    And the brightness will not be impacted and desired ambient effect will be produced?
