Hyperion is an opensource 'AmbiLight' implementation supported by many devices. The main features of Hyperion are:
- Low CPU load. For a led string of 50 leds the CPU usage will typically be below 1.5% 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.
- Kodi-checker which checks the playing status of Kodi and decides whether or not to capture the screen.
- Black border detector.
- A scriptable effect engine.
- Generic software architecture to support new devices and new algorithms easily.
