Hyperion is an opensource Ambilight implementation which runs on many platforms.
The main features of Hyperion are:
- Low CPU load. For a led string of 50 leds the CPU usage will typically be below 2% on a non-overclocked Pi.
- Json interface which allows easy integration into scripts.
- A command line utility allows easy testing and configuration of the color transforms (Transformation settings are not preserved over a restart at the moment...).
- Priority channels are not coupled to a specific led data provider which means that a provider can post led data and leave without the need to maintain a connection to Hyperion. This is ideal for a remote application (like our Android app).
- HyperCon. A tool which helps generate a Hyperion configuration file. The tool will also remember your settings from the previous run.
- Android remote control to set a static color.
- Kodi-checker which checks the playing and screensaver status of Kodi and decides whether or not to capture the screen. The checker also detects whether Kodi is playing 3D video content.
- Black border detector
- Json/Proto forwarder to send the current image to a second hyperion instance
- A scriptable effect engine.
- Boblight server interface to enable the use of clients written for Boblight.
- Generic software architecture to support new devices and new algorithms easily.
- Plenty of hardware is compatible with Hyperion, like PhilipsHue, AtmoOrb and other nice devices!
