    (as seen in the video, they are just on the edges)
    When you rip of the led pannel of a led TV there is a few sheets of diffusers. And then there is the backlight panel. Basically a plastic sheet that is hit with light normally from one side and it distribute the led strip light evenly over the whole panel. So no real need to add led stripes the one sitting in the screen is enough as it is.

    the video tells you to add LED strips(95+CRI), to get the correct color temp, which would be 5600K

    in the video, he places the strips around the outside, so they face inward, not filling the back of the panel with strips

    I just wondered if someone made one with stips on the back and sides to get for power output/Lumens from the lamp and if that had any drawbacks.
    I have to try and change the landscape, whatever it is.
