Salamander Designs LED Backlight system

Salamander Designs, Ltd., a leading designer and manufacturer of modern furniture, seating and mounting products for Home Theater and audio/video entertainment systems, introduces the Salamander Lighting System, a unique, modular LED-based illumination solution for high-quality A/V cabinets at CEDIA EXPO 2010.

The new Lighting System complements Salamander’s line of accessory products that includes: the Furniture Mate, a free-standing, universal mount for HDTVs, an Infrared Repeater that allows a remote control to operate through solid doors, and its group of Power Conditioning Products.

The Salamander Lighting System creates the ideal ambiance to complete a home entertainment experience. Its slim, versatile rods are modular, expandable, affordable and perfect for subtly or dramatically backlighting TVs, or for highlighting in-cabinet and under-cabinet spaces. Easy to operate, they can be used to brighten a single cabinet or illuminate an entire wall. When turned off, the system is virtually invisible.

Best of all, the system’s light emitting diodes (LEDs) are designed to last and operate at environmentally friendly low-energy levels. A compact infrared remote allows for full dimming and brightness adjustments.

The LEDs are embedded in narrow rods connected to a four-port, USB-type control hub. The basic Lighting System kit includes two 14-inch long rods, the control hub, and a remote control. The Lighting System can be expanded with additional rods of 14 and 23 inches. Custom installers can integrate the remote’s controls into larger macro environments or automated lighting scenarios.

The new Salamander Lighting System will be available at the end of September at prices starting at $119 for a basic kit. This product can be seen with Salamander’s other products at the 2010 CEDIA Show in Atlanta, Booth 3546.

Probably yeild and cost to produce since they aren't producing in high volumes yet.

They might have stolen the idea. I saw a product similar to this already for $50. Remote controlled and multicolor, and this is exactly what I thought I would use it for…if it wasn't $50

You are thinking of the Dioder lights from Ikea.

Those work well, but are a little bright for my tastes, I just wish they would give you way to dim them.

I keep waiting for it to drop in price due to economy of scale… it keeps holding on, though… no idea why.
