Adjusting your room lighting is just a touch away with Philips Hue RGB Lighting, but there’s something more from Philips this time at CES 2018. Philips Lighting today announced its first partnership for Philips Hue Entertainment with Razer. The main goal is to provide gamers with a new level of spatial immersion. Philips Hue Entertainment API and tools are now integrated with the Razer Chroma lighting ecosystem.
Gamers will be able to sync their Philips Hue color-capable smart lighting with their Razer Chroma-enabled devices, including laptops, keyboards, mice and mousepads, and enjoy light effects that enhance their gameplay and content. Game developers will be able to create lighting effects that change dynamically during gameplay. Gamers can already enjoy these in-game lighting effects when playing popular games like Overwatch, Quake Champion, etc.
Next-Level of Immersive Gaming Experience – Philips and Razer Chroma
Chris Worp, Business Group Leader Home at Philips Lighting stated that there are high demand from the gamers for a richer gaming experience. Philips Hue can take content beyond the screen and extends it into the living room, easily. For gamers, this ‘surround sound for your eyes’ is incredibly powerful when synced with the Razer Chroma-enabled devices.”
Philips Lighting’s partnership with Razer also provides gamers with a richer lighting experience when not playing games. They can sync their connected lighting with their gear and select any light setting to create a perfect ambiance.
Easy Configuration With Razer Synapse 3
Philips Hue V2 bridge, Philips Hue color-capable lights and the latest Philips Hue app software update is all you need. Razer Chroma users can then add Philips Hue functionality via the Razer Synapse 3 software. The software will be available for free with every compatible Razer device per January 9 in the afternoon (PST). This will enable the syncing capability with games that have been designed with the Philips Hue and Razer Chroma Link integration and light effects.
Razer Chroma-enabled devices, including gaming laptops, peripherals and accessories, will light up in parallel to the synced Philips Hue lights. From battle scenes and character selection to magical conquests, the new functionality creates a lighting experience that goes beyond the screen.
According to Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan, Razer Chroma is the world’s largest lighting ecosystem for gaming devices. With Philips Hue, Razer is transforming the gaming experience in the home and bringing it to the next level.
