Samsung has released a new app called SeeColors to help people who are colorblind to get the most out of their Samsung QLED TVs. The app enables them to recalibrate the colors on their TVs based on their particular needs. The app is compatible with all QLED TVs. It lets people with Color Vision Deficiency diagnose their personal visual deficiencies through the app. The TV can then adjust the color settings on the display based on the individual diagnosis results.
The app lets users identify the type and level of their Color Vision Deficiency and then directly recalibrate their QLED TV’s colors based on their diagnosis results.
The company partnered with Professor Klara Wenzel, head of the Department of Mechatronics, Optics and Mechanical Engineering Informatics at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, to adopt the Colorlite Test for TV and mobile devices.
The test was developed by Professor Wenzel and it uses the concept of color filters and mathematical modeling to diagnose levels of CVS.
Users can now download the SeeColors app for Samsung’s QLED TVs from the Smart TV App store. The diagnosis can also be conducted on Galaxy smartphones like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S7 so the app is also available via Google Play.
Once users connect their Galaxy smartphone to their QLED TV, the TV will automatically recalibrate based on the test that was conducted on the smartphone.
