White and Color Ambiance Bulb

Hue Color bulb uses three separate LEDs to produce the right hues of white, as well as great RGB colors. This drives the price higher but results in better accuracy across the spectrum.

Philips has classified bulb/lamp for three Color Gamut ranges, based on the lighting color they can provide. The newest model (So call gen3) is belonging to Gamut C, but there still exists some small difference between their sub model.

The following CIE figure illustrates the three gamut ranges the hue lights have.

Gamut A
Color x y
Red 0.704 0.296
Green 0.2151 0.7106
Blue 0.138 0.08
