Attention home theater junkies – THX has released their App for Android – THX tune-up – the App is currently free but will eventually cost $1.99, so if you’re an avid home theatre user then you’ll definitely want this App.
It’s limited in device compatability to the ‘major’ handsets, but basically because it requires Android 4.2.2, so if you own a • HTC One, HTC One Max, HTC One X, HTC One X+, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7-2013, Nexus 10, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
The list of features is pretty comprehensive :
• Aspect ratio – ensures your TV displays shapes and sizes correctly
• Brightness – ensures shadow details and night scenes are clearly visible
• Contrast – ensures white detail is visible on your television
• Color – ensures colors are bright and vibrant but not cartoonish
• Tint – ensures skin tones look natural and are not too green or red
THX tune-up uses the Android device’s rear-facing camera to set color and tint with a special built-in color filter. Just point your device’s camera at the TV screen and see if your color and tint settings are adjusted correctly.
• Speaker assignment – confirms speakers are connected properly to the correct AVR outputs
• Speaker phase – confirms that speaker cables are connected correctly and all speakers are in phase
• Play extraordinary THX trailers to show off your newly tuned TV and sound system
• Show off your audio system with the push of a button by playing “THX Deep Note” in 5.1 surround, just like in the cinema (phone or tablet must be connected via HDMI cable)
• Turn your phone or tablet into a “moo can” – tilt it to hear the “moo”
