Samsung has a new app called SeeColors that helps people who are colorblind get the most out of their Samsung QLED TVs. The app allows you to recalibrate the colors on your TV.
The app is compatible with all QLED TVs and lets people with Color Vision Deficiency diagnose their personal visual deficiencies and then adjust the color settings on the display based on your individual diagnosis. It’s part eye doctor, part utility.
The app will identify the type and level of your Color Vision Deficiency and then directly recalibrate your QLED TV’s colors based on the diagnosis results. This is a first in the world of TVs. Samsung 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 various levels of CVS.
You can now download the SeeColors app for Samsung’s QLED TVs from the Smart TV App store. It also works on Galaxy smartphones like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S7 available via Google Play.
