    Exclamation ROG Terminal reactive ambient lighting feedback

    I discovered in January via the ROG blog that Asus is going to be releasing a Lightpack style reactive ambient lighting system. It's called the ROG Terminal and is supposed to release in the first half of the year. I would like to make some suggestions before its release. There are already many products like this available on the market like Lightpack, Ambiscreen, Ambivision, and DreamScreen so Asus needs to make its product stand out somehow.

    Logitech just released their G560 speakers and Razer already has their Nommo speakers. Though I don't know if they are reactive to your screen or if they work with all games. And a lot of gamers use headphones or headsets so that wouldn't even work for them.

    First, it should be controllable and compatible with the constantly improving Asus Aura software. Second, the LEDs on the LED strip should be high quality and full spectrum. Third, there should be a high density of LEDs on the LED strip. Too few would not produce a good result. Fourth, there should be a DisplayPort port for use with gaming PC's. This is important. Fifth, there should be an HDMI port for use with consoles. Sixth, it should support the latest technologies like 4K 60HZ, HDR, CEC, ARC, etc. Thank you Asus for your great products and keep up the great work!

    I had some more thoughts about this and wanted to share. I strongly believe the ROG Terminal should work with PC's and consoles. Many people like myself have their gaming PC and console hooked up to their TV or monitor. I can't afford to buy two different lighting devices and even if I could there's only room for one on the back of my monitor.

    With this considered I think there are three possible configurations for the ROG Terminal. A ROG Terminal with USB port (PC) and HDMI port (console). Or a ROG Terminal with USB port (PC) and HDMI port (console) and DisplayPort port (PC). Or a ROG Termianl with HDMI port (console) and DisplayPort port (PC).

    Edit: Another option which would probably be the easiest for the user is, a ROg Terminal with USB port (PC) and USB port (console). I don't know if it would be possible to connect to a console and control the lighting with a USB port, but that would probably be the easiest solution instead of doing a HDMI passthrough.
