Samsung now has a meaningful new app, called SeeColors, to help color-blind people diagnose their Color Vision Deficiency (CVD).
According to a survey, conducted in Europe and North America and shared by Samsung, almost 300 million people globally have CVD, with approximately 8% of men and up to 1% of women affected.
Nevertheless, it’s quite surprising that most of them are still unaware of the challenge they have faced and CVD’s negative impact on their daily lives.
In order to come up with an innovative and easy way specifically for viewers with CVD, Samsung partnered with Klara Wenzel, who is a dedicated professor from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics.
After developing C-Test, which is the color-blindness test, uses color filters and mathematical modelling to diagnose levels of CVD, as mentioned.
Thanks to these developments, SeeColors became an amazing app, by helping to identify the type of CVD a person has and to determine how the type impacts the viewers’ vision while they looking at TV screen.
What is more, the app adjusts the color to make people’s views more accurate, after finding the type of CVD of them.

Hyeongnam Kim, Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics said:
Samsung is committed to making people’s everyday lives smarter and more convenient through technology and innovation,
The launch of SeeColors for QLED TV embodies this mission by providing users with a way to address one of the world’s biggest optical challenges through the latest technologies and visual displays.
As it has been shared, SeeColors is compatible with all Samsung QLED TVs. The app comes preinstalled on 2016 Samsung SUHD TVs. However, it’s also available for download from the Smart TV App store or on any Android device via Google Play and the Galaxy App Store.
Even SeeColors is only available for QLED TV owners; the idea behind creating such an app, allowing people with CVD to see the whole world in full color, is quite a change!
