Signify has announced the Philips Hue Sync TV app for Samsung TVs. The app allows users to enjoy a seamless light syncing experience with anything they watch or play on TV, including apps such as Netflix and Disney+. This collaboration between Samsung and Philips Hue are bringing new immersive ways to enjoy your TV, be it through watching movies or playing games. The app supports all image formats such as 8K, 4K and HDR 10+.
Philips Hue is all about personalization, and the new Philips Hue Sync TV app offers various customization features: users can set the intensity of the syncing experience, adjust the brightness of the lights, select video or game mode, enable auto-start, and more. Philips Hue users can create the best home theater experience by creating an Entertainment area in the Philips Hue app on their mobile device — they can select the lights they want to sync, and then drag and drop them to the right place and height in relation to their TV.
“We’re excited to bring the Philips Hue Sync TV app to Samsung TVs together with Philips Hue,” says James Pi, Head of Experience Planning Group, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “This innovative app offers our users a new way of experiencing TV content by immersing themselves in their favorite movie or game. It brings entertainment via our TVs to a whole new level.”
The Philips Hue Sync TV app is available for download on 2022 and newer Samsung QLED TVs in the Q60 or higher range. The app can be purchased and downloaded on individual TVs from the Samsung TV app store.
New outdoor lights, bulbs, and more
Outdoor Philips Hue lighting possibilities are further expanded in North America with Philips Hue PAR38 floodlight bulbs in White and color ambiance. As an addition to existing PAR38 bulbs that offer white light, the new floodlight bulbs bring shades of white and color light to any backyard or walkway.
The Philips Hue Tap dial switch is now available with a new round mini mount as an alternative to the rectangular wall mount. Smaller than the standard mount, the mini mount also gives you the flexibility to mount the wireless remote control anywhere you like: to the wall like a regular light switch, to cabinets, or placed on magnetic surfaces such as the refrigerator.
