ROG Aura Terminal

Four-port addressable RGB controller with ROG Halo and Aura Sync

  • ROG Halo: Enables ambient RGB synchronization to reflect in-game action when LED strips are mounted behind the monitor
  • Synchronize lighting with Aura Sync addressable gear for stunning PC gaming illumination
  • Illuminated ROG logo: Four built-in Aura lighting effects

ROG Aura Terminal builds on the foundation of our Aura ecosystem, giving you all the outputs needed to deck out your battlestation with ambient addressable RGB lighting. The included Halo software takes things a step further with a dynamic lighting effect that extends your screen to draw you deeper into the game. Give it a shot, you won’t look back.

What is ROG Aura Terminal?

Featuring four independently controllable addressable RGB headers*, ROG Aura Terminal lets you synchronize colors and lighting effects with other Aura-enabled gear, or enjoy lighting that reacts to onscreen action for an enthralling gaming experience.

* Each channel supports up to 90 LEDs per channel and 210 LEDs in total, equivalent to a maximum of 4.2 meters of addressable LED strips.

The next level of immersion

Halo raises the bar by intelligently casting RGB lighting effects into the room when you’re playing games or watching movies. The added backlighting extends your display and reduces the glare of high-contrast scenes, brilliantly mimicking on-screen color to fill your field of vision.



* Halo cannot analyze content that uses HDCP encryption.

Auto-detects letterboxed scenes and ensures Halo is properly detecting the content.

How Does Halo Work?

Halo analyzes content directly from a computer or laptop with a discrete graphics processor* to determine the average color value for different areas of the screen, then replicates it by controlling the corresponding LEDs on attached RGB lighting strips.

*Please refer to the recommend system configuration on the specifications page
