TV backlight compensation with Python #Python #Television
There is nothing like getting a, LED TV for free. But Pekka Väänänen found free isn’t perfect.
My Panasonic’s backlight is slightly broken causing an uneven pink color when it should be white.
The backlight LED array doesn’t emit enough blue or green light. This means most screen areas acquire a red tint. This is surprisingly passable in many films, but in black-and-white cinema it’s pretty terrible. It’s not possible to fix the red tint with regular color correction, since only some of the LEDs are broken. So maybe we could only tweak colors only near the broken LEDs?
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
