Philips Lighting and Razer Join Forces to Create a Powerful, Immersive Gaming Experience

Philips Lighting announced its first partnership for Philips Hue Entertainment with Razer, the 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 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 “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 color-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 ambiance, 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.”
