Philips Lighting partners Razer to enhance your gaming experience to another level

No comments

Picture this – Philips Hue Smart Lights + Razer Chroma. Whatever you have in mind is most likely what the partnership between Philips Lighting and Razer is all about.

Philips Lighting has announced its first partnership for Philips Hue Entertainment with Razer to give gamers a new level of gaming experience through the integration of the Philips Hue colour-capable smart-lights on Razer Chroma-enabled devices, which include mice, mousepads, keyboards, laptops and CPUs.

Leveraging on the Chroma-Hue integration, game developers can create lighting effects that change dynamically during gameplay to make the whole gaming experience even more immersive.

Before sinking into the world of Overwatch and Quake Champions with the responsive lighting effects, there are a few things that consumers will need to have first.

  1. Philips Hue V2 Bridge;
  2. Philips Hue colour-capable lights;
  3. Latest Philips Hue app software update; and
  4. Razer Synapse 3 software

Once these are in place, just add the Philips Hue functionality through the Razer Synapse 3 software and consumers are ready to be awed.

Chris Worp, Business Group Leader Home at Philips Lighting, said:

“We’re excited about this first integration to bring Philips Hue Entertainment to life for consumers. We have seen high demand from gamers for a richer game-play experience. Our smart lighting can deliver just that. Philips Hue takes the content beyond the screen and extends it into the living room. For gamers, this ‘surround sound for your eyes’ is incredibly powerful when synced with the Razer Chroma-enabled devices.”

According to the press release, the richer lighting experience does not restrict itself to gaming. It can also “sync the connected lightings with gears and select any light setting to create a perfect ambience, whether relaxing, hosting friends or simply surfing the Web.”

Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said:

“Razer Chroma is the world’s largest lighting ecosystem for gaming devices, and with Philips Hue, we are transforming the gaming experience in the home. This takes gaming immersion to a whole new level that has never been seen before.”

Philips Lighting and Razer join forces to create a powerful, immersive gaming experience

CES – Las Vegas, Nevada (USA) – Philips Lighting (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, today announced its first partnership for Philips Hue Entertainment with Razer, the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers. To provide gamers with a new level of spatial immersion, the companies have integrated the Philips Hue Entertainment API and tools with the Razer Chroma lighting ecosystem.

Gamers will be able to sync their Philips Hue colour-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 “Overwatch™,” “Quake Champions™” and other popular games.

To unlock the Philips Hue capability and enjoy richer gaming experiences, consumers require a Philips Hue V2 bridge, Philips Hue colour-capable lights and the latest Philips Hue app software update. Razer Chroma users will then simply need to add the Philips Hue functionality via the Razer Synapse 3 software, 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.

“We’re excited about this first integration to bring Philips Hue Entertainment to life for consumers. We have seen high demand from gamers for a richer game-play experience,” said Chris Worp, Business Group Leader Home at Philips Lighting. “Our smart lighting can deliver just that. Philips Hue takes the content beyond the screen and extends it into the living room. 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 ambience, whether relaxing, hosting friends or simply surfing the Web.

“Razer Chroma is the world’s largest lighting ecosystem for gaming devices, and with Philips Hue, we are transforming the gaming experience in the home,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “This takes gaming immersion to a whole new level that has never been seen before.”
