Free software synchronizes surrounding lighting effects with display content

June 05, 2018 // By Julien Happich
A free app that enables consumers to synchronize their Philips Hue smart lighting with games, videos and music played on their Windows 10 or macOS (Sierra and later) computer, the Philips Hue Sync. home entertainment software runs alongside the Philips Hue app to deliver a colourful spatial immersion.

Example scenarios include surrounding lights that mimic the explosions of an action game on screen, or a stunning sunset in a movie matched with the same violet, orange and yellow hues inundating the living room. The lights can also dance to the beat of music tracks.

"Following several entertainment pilots, we've refined the way lighting can be used with games, music and video. Philips Hue Sync offers a unique way to simply match light effects to consumers' content in a fast and synchronized way, delivering an engaging, immersive experience," said Jasper Vervoort, Head of Marketing and Product Management, Home Systems and Luminaires at Signify. "By working with leading players in the entertainment industry, we can take this even further. The premiere music video from Disney's DCappella band, "Immortals," demonstrates the power of a perfect sync."

Signify collaborated with Disney Music Group to showcase Philips Hue Sync's immersive capabilities with the highly anticipated, premiere music video from the new a cappella singing sensation, DCappella. The group performs the track, "Immortals," which was featured in Disney's Oscar-winning animated film, "Big Hero 6." As part of the collaboration, fans can enjoy the new video in a 360-degree experience.

The Hue Sync app can be used with one press of a button. Simply select your desired Audio, Video or Gaming mode within the control panel, and you can sync your lights to the entertainment content playing on your computer.

The lighting experience can be tailored with different brightness level and the pace at which the lights are changing alongside the content.
