Overview

DeviceControl is a very powerful program, with many capabilities beyond managing PGenerator, such as basic direct display control (DDC) of many TVs such as from Panasonic, LG, and Sony, as well as management of Lumagen LUT Boxes, as well as the ability to display multiple test patterns, such as Ted's LightSpace Disc Patterns. It is well worth spending time to understand, as it is a very, very powerful system for display calibration and management.

DeviceControl uses different Templates to provide different capabilities and options, with the various Templates accessible via DeviceControl itself.

A key DeviceControl Template enables direct 1D and 3D LUT management, via ColourSpace, of LG WOLEDs, including 2020 BX/CX/GX/WX/ZX, 2019 B9/C9/E9/W9/Z9/R9, and 2018 B8/C8/E8/G8/W8.

Ongoing developments keep adding greater and greater capabilities, making DeviceControl a key component for any display calibration and management operation.

Setup

  • Install the correct DeviceControl version for you PC - 32 bit, or 64 bit
    (After installation 'Perl' will be installed, if not already present)
  • DeviceControl will then run, showing a CMD window
    (Ignore any 'error' message on the first run!)
  • Open a Web Browser, and browse to http://localhost:81

DeviceControl is now ready for use.

To re-run DeviceControl at any later time after installation, select DeviceControl form the Programs menu to run the CMD window, and then open a Web Browser, and browse to http://localhost:81.

Updates

A new version of DeviceControl can be checked for using the ? option within the main DeviceControl menu.
(It may be better to re-flash a full new ISO when an update is available.)

The Cloud option can then be used to update the various templates a user has access to.

DeviceControl Operation

Dedicated advanced user guides for all aspects of ColourSpace use with DeviceControl, including guides for LG TV calibration for SDR via 3D LUTs, Dolby Vision, and HDR calibration, can be provided by Ted at DisplayCalibrations.com.

Advanced DeviceControl guides are only available to ColourSpace users.
