THX Offers New App For Home Theatre Tuning

THX Tune-Up AppTHX have designed an app for Mac users that allows them to tweak and adjust TV, projector and audio settings. Boasting a selection of specially designed video patterns and audio tests, the app uses your iOS device’s camera to ascertain what needs to be changed for your home theatre, based not only on your equipment, but also on the lighting conditions of your living room. The app allows users to adjust the tint, aspect ration, brightness and contrast of their TV or projector and can confirm whether speakers are in phase.

To use the Tune-Up app, you will need to connect your iPhone or iPad to your television via the Apple Digital AV adapter, or the Lightning Digital AV adapter and an HDMI cable, or Apple TV. According to bigpicturebigsound.com, current system requirements are as follows:

  • iPad 2, 3 and 4, with iOS version 5.1.1 or later
  • iPad Mini with version 6.0 or later
  • iPhone 4, 4S and 5 or later, iOS version 5.1.1
  • iPod touch generation 4 or later, with iOS version 5.1.1 or later

A version for Android users will be available later this spring.
