    Eindhoven, The Netherlands
    – It’s time to elevate your home entertainment experience with the launch of the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. This new innovation from Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, provides a simple way to sync your Philips Hue lights with your TV, enabling you to create immersive media experiences in your living room. Place the sync box between any HDMI device, whether that’s a streaming device, satellite and cable set-top box, game console, Blu-Ray and DVD player or laptop, and your TV, to take your movies, music, TV shows or video games to the next level with surround lighting.
    Enhancing entertainment
    Your color capable Philips Hue lights make explosions come alive, add magic to your favorite fairy tales and sync lights to music, all through the new Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. Plug in your product and open the dedicated Philips Hue Sync mobile app to add this essential device to your Hue ecosystem for an amazing entertainment experience.

With the ability to connect with as many as ten Philips Hue color capable lights, Philips Hue turns your living room in a cinema.

    Home cinema in a flash
    Light has long been used to enhance our entertainment experiences at concerts and the cinema. Until now, it’s been difficult to create the same effects at home. However, you can now enjoy similarly visually immersive experiences from the comfort of your couch. Simply connect up to four HDMI devices to the Philips Hue Play HDMI Play Sync Box and watch your lighting come to life. Philips Hue lights will sync whatever content is being played on your HDMI devices, and creates an exciting and interactive experience in your whole room increasing the overall enjoyment of what is happening on the screen. The Philips Hue Play HDMI Play Sync Box is able to switch automatically between the four different HDMI channels, depending on which one is being used at that moment. No delays or lag – just plug in and the experience begins!

    People love to escape the pressures of everyday life by getting lost in their entertainment. We are proud to present the new Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box and give them a simple way to make that possible. Philips Hue users can now easily connect the color-capable lights in their room with their home entertainment systems, taking their movie- and TV-watching, listening and gaming experience to a completely new level."
