The new addition to Philips Hue’s bright white lighting system is a small black box that overlays a room full of lights and what is being done on the television. The toys, movies, media, and other things you watch will fit into the box, change the color and brightness of your lights according to the theme and create a profound experience.
Very much in the works during the demo last month, I saw in the room that it was full of lights and a flashlight and a trailer for Developer: Endgame, and the colors change rapidly to reflect the objects on the screen. The effect is simple, and I can imagine it working well with some experience, such as games or an awesome movie.
But the trailer showed how this really weakened. Because the trailer is fast and full of fast-paced episodes, the lights change incessantly, almost to the point of despair. That doesn’t happen in most television shows and movies, but if you put the tool in the right place, as they say, the promotion has been published, I can think it will happen this early. (I saw it with the light sets for “power mode”; the system for “knowing” to improve stress. It can also eliminate stress).
The device, called the HDMI Frame Sync Play Tone, travels between the television and all the devices you install, such as a Blu-ray player, game console, or cash flow. All HDMI connections go to the Tone Store, and the video signal is sent to your television while decomposing the color so that it can be transmitted to your lights. They mean, what is the point of the Systematic Tone, which says not to cause problems, even in games.
There are also some restrictions. The device supports 4K 60Hz and HDR10 at launch, but does not support HDR10 + and Dolby Vision, both of which are high standards for high quality. HDR10 + and Dolby Vision images deliver the device with the highest quality on television, but the Playground Color does not interfere with light functions.
Connecting the lights with what is on your television has been the creator’s dream for years. Back in 2014, it merged with Syfy lights that are allowed to connect Sharknado 2. Later it was done me 12 Makimaki Y an xbox game. But these inclusions are all light “documentation”, which means that one has to decide how to change the light for each moment in the film. Mean says, he is not weak on record, but he knows it is not easy to balance – so it includes automated systems such as Tone of Play.
Last year, Mean received its first breakthrough in the automated system the Sync Sync app, to set up lights and objects on a Mac or Windows PC. It works well, but it is not limited to computers.
Tone Play box eventually leads to direct television, but otherwise it is more expensive. It starts on October 15 and sells for $ 229.99.
Updated September 17, 10AM ET: This means that the HDR10 + and Dolby Vision tapes will switch to the Game Tonality box, even if the lighting effects are not supported.
