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.



  • 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
