For Release on Aug. 3, 2017: HAMBURG, Germany – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the Razer Chroma Hardware Development Kit (HDK), the world’s most advanced modular lighting system for PC gamers and enthusiasts. Integrated within the Razer Chroma ecosystem, the Chroma HDK offers all-in-one color customization with precise control down to the individual LED.
Users can shape and bend the LED strips to fit virtually any surface to light up an entire room, home or office for total game immersion. The individually controllable lights are integrated into Razer Synapse 3, and are powered by Razer Chroma™ technology, which unlocks customizable lighting features that can be synced across devices.
The Razer Chroma HDK supports 4 channel output with a total capacity of 64 RGB LEDs. Included in the box are 2 LED strips that have 16 LED’s each and additionally, the Razer Lightpack Extension Kit (purchased separately) comes with a pair of LED strips and extension cables.
Gamers can choose from 16.8 million colors and a variety of effects. Custom settings can be created using the all-new Chroma Studio on Razer Synapse 3 – the next generation device configurator tool that is currently in beta. Using Chroma Studio gamers will be able to synchronize lighting effects across devices and also have the ability for certain effects to be displayed continuously across peripherals based on their physical position relative to the other.
“Razer Chroma is the most advanced lighting configurator in the world, enjoyed by millions of gamers worldwide,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “The Chroma HDK allows us to take game immersion to the next level with PC cases, entertainment centers, appliances, and be used wherever else users desire.”
