LEDs for TVs and media-panels

LED strips can be used to create a striking media-panel feature effect around any TV.

This TV is backlit by 10-watt RGBW LED strip lights

Because this kind of lighting is intended as a low-level feature, you should choose either low-wattage white, RGB or RGBW LEDs. (We recommend making them dimmable. This will be useful, as even low-level LEDs may be brighter than you need, depending on the time of day or night).

Pure-white LED create an attractive TV media-panel effect

Use dimmable 5-watt white LED tape (pure-white, neutral-white and warm-white options available), and a wireless remote for on/off and dimming control. Here are three controller options – you can find more alternatives on our LED dimmers page.

InStyle's Easy RF dimmer kit for white & single-colour LEDs

Your most cost-effective choice for a simple, no-frills remote is our compact easy RF LED dimmer/receiver kit.

A stylish (but slightly more expensive) controller option is our handheld controller/receiver kit for white LEDs.

Positioning your TV feature-light LEDs:

Your TV’s feature-light LEDs should be positioned to create a light-wash effect on the surrounding walls.

RGB LEDs fitted around a TV

To achieve this, strip lights can be simply fitted around the edge of the TV’s back (to shine directly onto the wall behind, creating a halo effect).

Or the TV can be housed in a bespoke panel. This will allow you to fit you LEDs to the back or outside edge of the panel (see our mirror highlights page).

Mounting RGBW LEDs behind a bespoke media panel enhances this TV feature-light's effect

These recommendations apply to InStyle’s commercial-grade Epistar-branded LED strip lights. For lower-grade strip lights from elsewhere, adjust accordingly.
