Business Leader Philips Hue at Signify
Our new Philips Hue Play gradient lightstrip generates multiple colors at once and blends them together seamlessly, creating a magical viewing effect around your TV. We’re proud to offer our consumers such a truly immersive experience in their own home,” continues Jasper Vervoort, Business Leader Philips Hue at Signify.
The surround lighting superstar
Every detail of the new Philips Hue Play gradient lightstrip has been designed to provide an optimal effect, offering a 45-degree light projection and a perfectly blended gradient of light. This is made possible with a series of individually addressable LEDs — all of which can produce white and more than 16 million colors of light. Mirroring whatever content you watch, play, or listen to and using the colors from the entirety of the screen, colors flow naturally into one another along the led strip, blending them together seamlessly and casting them against the wall for a unique effect behind your TV. The lightstrip is easily and optimally placed to the back of your hanging or free-standing TV with specifically designed mounts, guaranteeing the best light experience.
Personalize your experience
The Philips Hue Play gradient lightstrip works seamlessly with any Hue color-capable light, which offers a maximum amount of flexibility to create a personalized entertainment area. Users can easily customize the way their lights react to the content on their TV screen with the Hue Sync mobile app. They can control the speed and intensity of the light effects, adjust the brightness of the room, and more. To use the Philips Hue Play gradient lightstrip, users need either the Philips Hue Sync desktop app or the Philips Hue Play HDMI sync box paired with the Hue Sync mobile app. Hue Bridge required (sold separately).
The launch of the Philips Hue Play gradient lightstrip is part of Philips Hue’s initiative to expand its entertainment portfolio after launching the Philips Hue Play HDMI sync box during IFA 2019. In combination with the sync box and additional Philips Hue lights, the Philips Hue Play gradient lightstrip brings the surround lighting effect to a next level.
The Philips Hue Play gradient lightstrip will be available from October 6, 2020, in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Preorder starts now in selected markets. Visit philips-hue.com to find out more.
