New TVs were once again one of the bestsellers during the Black Friday sales. But an estimated eight percent of people who might have purchased a new TV this week can’t fully enjoy its vibrant 4K Ultra HD, HDR, OLED, melt-your-eyeballs glory because of color blindness.
However, if you purchased a Samsung TV, you may be in luck. Samsung, with the help of Budapest University of Technology, has developed an app called SeeColors that will help color blind users assess their visual color spectrum and adjust the color settings on their TV accordingly to enhance the picture. The mobile app utilizes a special digital diagnostic method developed by the university called Colorlite Test, or C-Test. This method uses the concept of color filters and mathematical modeling to diagnose the types and levels of color blindness.
The feature is available for all Samsung QLED TV’s, and the SeeColors app can be downloaded in the Google Play Store and Galaxy App Store.
