DeviceControl is a browser based control program that enables different test images and more to be displayed via the Raspberry Pi PGenerator, as well as managing TV settings and calibration for select TVs.
The latest development is direct 1D and 3D LUT management for LG WOLEDs, including the B8, C8, E8, G8, and W8, as well as the older B7, C7, E7, G7, and W7 models using the special 'Studio' firmware supplied by LG.
DeviceControl is a very powerful program, with many capabilities beyond managing PGenerator, such as the direct control of many Panasonic TVs, as well as Lumagen LUT Boxes, and is well worth spending time to understand.
And with future development adding greater capabilities, DeviceControl will become a key component for any Home Cinema enthusiast!
The most recent addition is the direct loading of 1D and 3D LUTs generated via LightSpace into compatible LG TVs.
For operational information see the User Guide page.
Support for DeviceControl is provided via the Light Illusion Forums.
DeviceControl enables commands to be sent to compatible devices/TVs, and their configurations to be shared between users.
