Adaptive background lighting Ambient light, without exaggeration, an amazing technology. With its adaptive illumination, eyes become less tired when you watch TV in the dark. Also the presence effect enhances, the image viewing area extends, etc. Ambient light is applicable not only to video and photo content, but also to games. The implementation of such a feature on the Android TV set-top box or Android TV based on Android OS above 5.1 (Lollipop) is now possible using the Ambient light Application for Android program.
!!! It is important to know !!!
The picture from the TV tuner is not processed at the Android OS level, the backlight with regular tv channels will not work. The backlight works only in Android OS applications that do not use protected content. 4K performance depends only on the capabilities of the equipment. Unfortunately, programs such as YouTube and Netflix use protected content, the backlight in such programs will not work. This may not work properly on the latest Android 9 Xiaomi firmwares.
Ambient light Application for Android is one of the few programs for Android based devices that allows you to implement Ambient light backlighting directly on your smart TV with no need of PC. There are three operating modes, that are:
SINGLE COLOR MODE – his mode allows you to include all the backlighting with one color selected in the program settings. This mode suits well as a night room lighting, surprisingly changing the familiar interior.
COLOR EFFECT MODE – This is the mode for displaying color effects. Dynamic backlighting can change colors, depending on which preset effect you have selected in the settings.
SCREEN CAPTURE MODE – This is probably the most in-demand mode of the backlight, which allows you to change its colors depending on what content is currently displayed on the screen.
