Samsung Created an Application That Allows Color Blind People to Recalibrate Colors on Their TV
Samsung launched SeeColors, its new app catering to people who are color blind. This app is specially designed to help the colorblind people adjust the color settings on their QLED TVs according to their specific needs. The app allows people to diagnose their personal deficiencies and link that data with their TV to adjust colors based on the results. Samsung recorded that around 300 million people suffer from Color Vision Deficiency (CVD), with many unaware of their condition. The development of this app is expected to help many discover their severity of their condition and other who are unaware of their condition be able to undergo easy self-diagnosis at home.
Samsung collaborated with Professor Klara Wenzel from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics to develop this application. She developed C-Test—the colorblindness test that uses color filters and mathematical models to diagnose levels of CVD, after which she developed the test for TV and mobile devices. The company claims the app can be used with any QLED TV, while it is preinstalled on 2016 Samsung SUHD TVs. However, in November, the company announced released the application for all android users.
In case this app is not available on someone’s Samsung TV, they can always download SeeColors, from the Smart TV App store. They could also download the app on their android device via Google Play and the Galaxy App Store. Users can connect their Galaxy smartphones to their TV to allow their TV to calibrate colors based on the diagnosis of their condition.
