Get the free THX Tune-up app to help you make the most of your entertainment system

Get the free THX Tune-up app to help you make the most of your entertainment system. The new iOS app by THX, the company founded by none other than George Lucas and behind some of the finest cinema theaters on the planet, was only released yesterday and will be available for free for a limited period.

According to the description, it will help you make the most of your TV and sound system. Interestingly enough, it has been optimized for the iPhone 5 and uses the camera of your smartphone (and tablet) to set colour and tint with a special built-in colour filter.

It features “custom video test patterns, carefully selected videos and tutorials that will help you adjust and confirm the best picture settings on your display based on your room lightning.”

As for the sound, “using special test sounds, THX tune-up also lets you check your external speakers to make sure they are working in phase and are connected properly for 2-channel stereo or 5.1 surround sound systems.”
