What software is needed?
- Windows: Ambibox or Prismatik
- Raspberry Pi: Openelec/libreelec+Hyperion
- Android TV/TV box: Android Ambilight app
Step 1: Install LED light on your TV(please refer to the video for details)
Step 2: Purchasing a Paid Software on Google Play: Android Ambilight Application
Note: Android TV/TV boxes(only Android 5.1 or above can be used)
Step 1: Install LED light on your PC.
Step 2: Setting up the Ambibox Capture Software.
2.1. Ambibox software(Shareware);
2.2. Run the Ambibox software, when installing, it recommends to use PlayClaw, I wouldn't recommend using it.
2.3. Select the device and set this as "Adalight", under the menu of "Intelligent backlight display", select the Port and the COM Port that your device has been detected. If selected correctly, you can see Device Status: Connected, also down the bottom left it will say Adalight: connected.
2.4. Once you set up, you can select the "Wizard capture zones" which will automatically generate all capture zones for you.
PRO TIPS: if you find your colors are washing out or seem very white rather than colorful, adjust your gamma settings, if you getting a white backlight on a pure black screen, increase the size of sample zones, It will take a bit of fine-tuning but worth it!
The software analyses what you currently have on the screen, be it a movie, a game, or
anything else, it'll sends this information to the device which in turn lightens the surface
behind the screen with matching colours using the RGB-LEDs available within the device.
