About Hyperion

Hyperion is an opensource Bias or Ambient Lighting implementation which you might know from TV manufacturers. It supports many LED devices and video grabbers. The project is still in a alpha development stage (no stable release available).



  • Low CPU load makes it perfect for SoCs like Raspberry Pi
  • Json interface which allows easy integration into scripts
  • A command line utility for testing and integration in automated environment
  • Priority channels are not coupled to a specific led data provider which means that a provider can post led data and leave without the need to maintain a connection to Hyperion. This is ideal for a remote application (like our Android app).
  • Black border detector and processor
  • A scriptable (Python) effect engine with 39 build-in effects for your inspiration
  • A multi language web interface to configure and remote control hyperion
