    May 28, 2020
    Signify enriches Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box with voice control, infrared remote control and HDR10+/Dolby Vision content support


    Somerset, New Jersey – With its latest software update, Signify enriches the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. You can now enjoy synchronized surround lighting effects from your color-capable Philips Hue lights when watching Dolby Vision or HDR10+* content that is passed through the sync box to compatible televisions. The list of supported televisions and HDMI devices can be found here:


    ”Start syncing my lights”

    Popcorn in one hand and a drink in the other, and all set to turn on your personal surround lighting experience? Simply ask Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri to help you out! The latest software update also adds voice control to the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. Users can power the sync box on or off, start or stop the light sync, switch from audio to gaming or video mode, and even switch HDMI channels with a voice command.


    (Remote) control your life

    In addition, the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box is now able to respond to your standard infrared TV remote control or the Harmony universal remote. Configure your sync box to respond to any button on your remote control via the Hue Sync mobile app, and you are ready to go. For example, you can switch between multiple HDMI devices or turn the sync box on or off.


    How to install the software update?

    Getting these features is easy. Just follow the steps in your Hue Sync mobile app settings menu to install the software update and start enjoying the new functionality.
