The TCL iPQ Engine Mobile Calibration app delivers a simple way to improve the picture performance accuracy of select TCL Roku TVs.
The iPQ Engine Mobile Calibration app allows you to pair your iPhone with a compatible TCL Roku TV to measure the TV white point accuracy and then automatically adjust the TV for better performance.
Compatible with the following TCL Roku TVs:
8-Series (2019 models - Q82)
6-Series (2018 and 2019 models - R61 and R62)
Q: Why should I use this app?
A: Every TCL Roku TV is designed to deliver exceptionally accurate picture performance. But for serious home theater fans, TV calibration ensures true picture accuracy no matter if your TV is fresh from the factory or it's a seen a few years of use.
Q: Why is it good for my TCL Roku TV to have accurate picture performance?
A: When a TV's picture performance is accurate, this means that the pictures that are displayed will correctly show how the image was originally captured. This makes your TV viewing experience more engaging because the screen performance is optimized, delivering more compelling images.
Q: What specific picture performance is calibrated with this app?
A: The iPQ Engine Mobile Calibration app measures the white balance at various brightness levels and then tunes the red, green and blue levels at each of 6 brightness levels to ensure an accurate white balance. An accurate white balance is the foundation to deliver all colors and to optimize the performance of your TV screen.
Q: Can this app calibrate TVs other than those listed above?
Q: Can this app be installed on iOS devices other than iPhone for TV calibration?
A: It may be possible to install and use the app on other iOS devices, but the results of the TV calibration may be inaccurate. Only iPhones always support an accurate camera measurement that is needed for correct TV calibration. So you should only use iPhones with this app.
Q: Other than an iPhone and a select TCL Roku TV, what else is needed?
A: The TV and the phone should be connected on the same network. Also, it's best to measure the TV in a darker room. The room doesn't need to be completely dark, but try to avoid any lights reflecting on the TV screen.
Q: What happens next after I install the app on my iPhone?
A: Here's what happens after launching the app:
1. Use the app to pair the phone and TV
2. The phone asks the TV to install a companion iPQ Engine channel on the TCL Roku TV.
3. The companion iPQ Engine channel shows a series of patterns.
4. Follow the instructions to line up the phone camera and TV to take photos
5. The TV is automatically calibrated - enjoy!
Support added for 2020 TCL North America 6-Series (R63) and 5-Series (S53).
Ratings and Reviews
Do the process a few times
Make sure to follow the process multiple times. My TV initially had a poor rating, and after 3 cycles it is now at excellent. I took off a star because the app allowed me to connect to my TV which is wired to my router, implying the process would work, however it wouldn’t push the calibration images to my TV. I had to connect the TV to the wireless network first.
Free Amazing feature from a great company
There is no other TV brand which offers such an incredible feature to its customers. And it’s FREE!
To be able to calibrate my tv at home was very simple and easy; by following the on screen prompts through the app, I was able to calibrate the tv several times. It saved me the $200+ dollars to have my tv calibrated by a professional and I can do it multiple times. I am not big into the tv world in terms of accuracy in bright or dark scenes or having the peak amount of color but this app has allowed me something that I otherwise would have no access to. Thank you TCL for this great feature!
IPhone SE (2020); 2019 TCL Series 8. Phone on a tripod in dark room; “brighter” TV brightness; local contrast - off. Managed 0.48 on second try and will run calibration in a month to check for any drift. Picture was fine to begin with, but improved noticeably after calibration. In my setup the app will hang in any of the darker TV brightness settings. Both TV and phone must be on same wireless network. I just used regular cable input as starting screen. Not a professional calibration, but to be honest, I don’t think it’s necessary for my needs.
