Still not sure how the new Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip is mounted on the back of the TV? You need some impressions of how the light strip fits exactly on the three sides of the TV before you make your purchase decision? Then I have the right video for you today.
But first of all there are some data. After all, there are three different models, all of which have a different length. Here is a small overview for you:
- 55 inch Gradient Lightstrip: 216.5 centimetres long
- 65 inch Gradient Lightstrip: 254 cm long
- 75 inch Gradient Lightstrip: 304 cm long
My 55-inch television, for example, is 70 centimetres high and around 120 centimetres wide, so the three edges are considerably longer than the light strip. However, due to the curved back, I am forced to mount the light strip a little further inside anyway. But it’s best if you just look for yourself in this german speaking video:
So the assembly is certainly not rocket science. And since it didn’t work out with my all-or-nothing shot, here’s some more information for you: The Philips Hue Play Gradient Lightstrip should only be installed in one direction behind the TV – the controller and the power connection are always in the bottom right corner when you look at the back of the TV. More exciting information about the new light strip can be found in my answers article.
In the coming days I will show you how the lighting effect changes depending on the distance to the wall. You will get a final impression at the beginning of October just in time for the sales launch – currently the software is not quite finished yet, so a judgement would not be quite fair.
