Nanoleaf 4D Features
The Nanoleaf 4D uses a camera that can be positioned either above or below your TV to sync the colors from the content on your screen with the light strip mounted behind it for total immersion. The camera has a privacy cover.
The light strip itself has 10 color zones per meter, so its gradient effect allows for a more accurate representation of what appears on your screen. The lighting effects will automatically remap to fit the length of the lighting strip when you cut it.
There are 4 Mirror Modes to choose from, each designed to suit a particular mood or style of content. Ambient background lighting, fluid color melts, and a direct “4D” match, which gets you that total screen mirrored color immersion. Any mode can be coupled with Rhythm sound reactivity to engage the senses further.
The Nanoleaf 4D can sync across 50+ Nanoleaf devices, including Nanoleaf Shapes and Lines. This expands the mirror effect, potentially, into all four corners of your room. If you play it right, you can get a surround lighting effect.
