What is Govee AI Game Sync Box Kit?
During CES Unveiled 2023, Govee introduced its new AI Gaming Sync Box kit. The AI-powered HDMI gaming box will enhance your gaming experience by syncing your smart lighting with the action on your screen, delivering a real-time lighting experience that automatically flows and changes.
Speaking to MakeUseOf, Govee explained that the Gaming Sync Box Kit’s AI is trained to work with specific games like League of Legends, where it is aware of what’s happening in-game. So, for example, getting a Penta-kill, killing a boss, or destroying a tower will trigger a special lighting effect, each designed in the color and style of the game.
It’s a unique way to bring extra flair and flair to your gaming setup and can be integrated with your other smart home lighting options. We have similar attempts at this technology from Govee, including the Govee Dive Kit and Govee Flow Pro Wi-Fi Light Bars, but this is the first product to use AI.
While there are some similar products on the market, Govee claims that the AI Gaming Sync Box Kit will overcome common issues, including slow reactions and limited color accuracy. Plus, this is the first HDMI AI box to support up to 240Hz, making it ideal for fast-paced gaming. The box has three HDMI IN and one HDMI OUT and supports input switching. Using its built-in chip, the AI Gaming Sync Box Kit handles all the processing ensuring your PC doesn’t slow down.
Right now, only four games are fully supported (League of Legends, Valorant, and Apex Legends have been confirmed). However, its AI is currently being trained with several others so that more will be supported in time for its March release. There are currently over 30 custom lighting effects for each game, with more to come. There is a claimed lag time of less than 16 milliseconds which should seem pretty instantaneous. The AI Gaming Sync Box supports three resolutions and refresh rates: 4k 60Hz, 2k 144Hz, and 1k 240Hz, as well as HDR, Dolby Vision, and CEC.
Beyond gaming, the AI Gaming Sync Box Kit will also provide the same reactive lighting effects as your other products when watching videos. The same AI technology is also coming to Govee’s Music Sync boxes, allowing you to identify the tempo and genre so effects can be more unique to your favorite songs. The Govee AI Gaming Sync Box Kit retails for $299.99 and is expected to launch in late March 2023.
