Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box: Ambilight for everyone

This new system, which looks like an HDMI switch, presents 4 entries et an HDMI output in a black box a priori rather compact. Supporting the 4K HDR (also pass-through), it will synchronize up to ten light devices of the Philips Hue range with the image of any TV.

Obviously, you will need to purchase a Philips Hue White & Color starter kit, or at least one Philips Hue bridge for the magic to work, but you don't necessarily have to have an Ambilight screen and that, it must be admitted that it is more than appreciable, especially since DreamScreen threw in the towel and ceased to market its system.

Hue Play: the system makes perfect sense

Philips launched its LED lights for entertainment a little over a year ago called Hue play. An ingenious system but which seemed more or less reserved for a PC “setup”, today it is so unnatural to walk around with a laptop PC to enjoy the system on a television. From now on, we will be able to install them on the back of our TVs, fix Philips Hue White & Color LED strips or alternatively Sign light fixtures.

The system, tested by the American site Techhive.com, seems convincing according to the journalist who was lucky enough to be able to approach this news Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. Very responsive, unlike the Philips Hue experience on the MyCanal application of a Fire TV Stick 4K for example, the immersion here is total and conforms to what we can already experience on the Ambilight.

In short, the lighting specialist democratizes their system by offering an Ambilight to everyone. Obviously, as always with Philips, this has a blow and not the least, since it will be necessary to pay almost 250 €.

Available from October 15 across the Atlantic,th case Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box will be marketed in France at first quarter 2020 at a price of 249,95 euros..
