LightSpace Connect - Android and iOS App

Just a bit of advance news for those using LightSpace CMS.

We're presently playing with an Alpha version of a new Android/iOS patch generator App for LightSpace.
At the moment we have just the Android version under test (mainly 'cos I don't like Apple stuff, so will have to locate some for testing...), but initial tests look good.

The App should run on Android and Apple mobile phones, Firestick, Chromecast, AppleTV, etc.
(Probably some restrictions depending on the device used, but that's yet to be proven.)

Testing at the moment has been on a Samsung Galaxy S5, both profiling the phone screen, as well as profiling a TV via Screen Mirroring and MHL HDMI cable.

Not yet sure on a release date, as more testing is required, but felt the LightSpace CMS users here would like an advanced update.

A beta version of LightSpace Connect for Android is now available:

There is some user info here: http://www.lightillusion.com/lightsp...ct_manual.html

It can be used with the Free DPS version of LightSpace.

An iOS version will be made available shortly.

I side loaded the app from my phone to an Amazon fire tv stick, had to load the mouse app from toptutorials.co.uk to the fire stick in order to navigate through the app, for setting the required information.
Once all was setup, I ran a manual calibration on 2 point and gamut. Best results I have achieved with Lightspace so far (I have only had the software for a few days) and the best performance from my display to date. Now for the 3dlut.

Thank you for making this app available as I realized that my pc outputs the green channel to level 238 max and was not getting acceptable results

Only one question, should closed loop or dip mode be used?

Closed loop should always be used when the patches are directly controlled from LightSpace CMS, which is the case with the 'LightSpace Connect' app.

Grad you like it.
And great to hear you are getting good results.

I'm testing the iOS version at the moment, having done a lot of Android testing over the past few weeks.

I like the idea of the mouse, but but I'll also look to see if we can find a way to manage the app without that need.

Hi, a note about these 2 modes (Closed Loop / DIP):

DIP mode (Display Independent Profiling) is including an internal delay of 0.5 sec (500ms) which gives command to your meter to read each patch 0.5sec after it’s been displayed.

Closed Look don't have any internal delay, so you have to add that delay @ meter options. If you set 0.5 sec extra delay, you will have 0.5 delay in total before each meter read.

In DIP mode, if you set 0.5 sec extra delay then you will have 1 sec delay in total. (because DIP mode has 0.5sec integrated already)

The LightSpace Connect App can now be used on Fire TV and Google TV devices as well as Android and iOS smartphones/tablets, and can be downloaded via the Apple Store, Google Play Store, and Amazon.

We have also added 'auto IP address search' to make connection a lot easier.

See: http://www.lightillusion.com/lightspace_connect.html for more information.
