New Philips Lightstrip Syncs with Your Shows and Games

Light up your TV in a new way with the new Philips Hue lightstrip. Mount the new Philips strip on your TV and watch it flash and glow along with your game or movie. Once mounted on the TV, the Philips Hue lightstrip will flash different colors along the strip. This ability will allow for a more immersive TV experience. 

The New Philips Hue Lightstrip

If you want to use this strip, you’ll have to shell out $60 Hue Bridge and $230 for a Philips Hue Play HDMI sync box. Use both gadgets if you want to mount the strip on your TV. However, if you just plan to use the strip for your monitor, just use the Hue Bridge and the Philips Hue Sync app.

You can also mount the strip straight out of the box.

How Does the Philips Hue Lightstrip Work?

This strip is one result of years of hard work from Signify to merge lighting with home entertainment. Signify makes the Hue system, which should give users a more immersive TV experience. Behind the Hue system is the idea that TVs should hold viewers’ attention better using lighting that mirrors what they’re watching. The Verge reports that the system does work, though the quickly changing lighting might distract users.

You can buy the Philips Hue lightstrip on October 16 in the United States. You can choose between models that fit 55 to 85-inch TVs. The strips cost between $200 to $240. 

Other Signify Products

If you don’t want the Hue lightstrip, you could get the new Philips Hue Iris lamp, with richer colors and brighter lighting. You can buy it for $100. Look out for the Iris when it goes on sale on October 19.
