"Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box": A name that is a tongue twister for a device very interesting - I'm only for what it does in the home, but also for what it could do in other scenarios.
It is essentially one HDMI switch: it is in fact possible to connect up to four different sources (Blue Ray reader, SKY decoder, computer and mini computer, game console, etc.) to then connect the output to the TV: the switch is pass-through, that is to say that the input information is the same as the output. What Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box ago is to analyze the video signal in transit to transform it into ... sequences luminose at the il systemlumination Philips Hue.
In practice, the function is the same as the classic one Philips Ambilight, with the substantial difference that this new system allows to appeffects lumito any type of light Philips Hue (colored) available in the environment, including for example the LED strips, thus making the whole environment reactive to images.
The limit of controllable lights is 10; the unit foresees the presence in the environment of Philips Hue Bridge. The unit will be equipped with a remote control (for the fast switch between the four HDMI sources) and can be controlled (also in terms of speed, transition, rhythm) through theapp Philips Hue Sync app.
Home use it is certainly the one expected, but we do not exclude the possibility of use also in other areas, such as fairs, exhibition spaces, shop windows.
Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box should be available from 15 October pv. at a price around 250 €. 😱 We hope that Philips will review the price, we won't add anything else.
