Ambilight automatically and independently adapts its colours according to the changing content on the screen.
Seen this set in action a few months back in Curry's - the picture is absolutely amazing! These sets used to retail at £2500, and have come down in price dramatically.
Be aware that this set has been known to have issues, although not all owners reported the problem - it's with 1:1 pixel mapping.
