HyperCon Hardware - Tab

This page is a chapter in 'HyperCon Guide'


Now we could start to configure HyperCon. We will start with the "Hardware" Tab.


Device

First, you need to choose th device you want to use (led typ or device)
Hint: Not all devices need the same settings!
  • Configuration name: It is recommended to set a name you may remember later
  • Type: Choose your led/device type.
  • (Output): The "device" path Hyperion sends the color information
  • (Baudrate): The speed Hyperion sends the color information to the device
  • RGB Byte Order: Choose the right order - you don´t know it? We too! If your RGB colors are transposed (example: red is green)- just change it and try again!
HINT: For PhilipsHue, AtmoOrb, Fadecandy, UDP Device etc you need more information. Just klick on it to open the explanation page. All devices are listed here: LED-Devices/Types


Contruction
The construction builds a led frame around the TV simulation on the right side

The construction builds a led frame around the TV simulation on the right side (Front view!)
  • Led top left/right: Enable one led at the top left/right corner of your TV
  • Led bottom left/right: Enable one led at the bottom left/right corner of your TV
  • Direction: Choose "clockwise" or "counter clockwise" depends on how you placed your leds (You can input the led data signal just from one side! The simulation on the right show the behaviour (Front view!))
  • LEDs horizontal: Add the amount of leds that you placed at the bottom and top of your TV
  • LEDs left: Add the amount of leds that you placed at the left side of your TV
  • LEDs right: Add the amount of leds that you placed at the right side of your TV
  • Bottom Gap: If your TV is not mounted at a wall you may have a gap where no leds are placed, add it here.
  • 1st LED offset: Rotate your LEDs at the simulation until the LED number 0 is at the same place where you start to input your data!
HINT: The view is ALWAYS in front of your TV, never from the backside! Check your settings at the TV simulation!


Image Process


The Image Process make it possible to mix up and change/move the picture grabbing area for all of your leds.
  • Horizontal depth [%]: Adjust the depth of your grabbing area, eight means eight percent at the top and eight percent at the bottom of your picture is used to determine the color for the particular led
  • Vertical depth [%]: Adjust the depth of your grabbing area, six means six percent at the top and six percent at the bottom of your picture is used to determine the color for the particular led
  • Horizontal gap [%]: Adjust the horizontal gap between your TV picture border and the led grabbing area
  • Vertical gap [%]: Adjust the vertical gap between your TV picture border and the led grabbing area
  • Overlap [%]: For a smoother color transition you could overlap the leds area with each other.
HINT: The default values are good, you could just add some overlap (20) if you like


Blackborder Detection

The Blackborder Detection help you to ignore black border/bars, if your TV aspect ratio not matches the picture aspect ratio (example: 4:3 content or 21:9 on a 16:9 TV)
  • Enabled: If checked, the black border detection is enabled
  • Threshold [%]: Value below which a pixel is regarded as black
  • Mode: Select the detection mode
HINT: The default values are good. For a explanation about the possible modes follow: Blackborder Detection Mode


You hopefully have done the first steps to your own amazing ambilight. Congratulations!
On the next page we will continue with the "Process" tab.
