Sam­sung has de­vel­oped an app for its QLED TVs aimed at help­ing peo­ple with color vi­sion de­fi­ciency (CVD) bet­ter un­der­stand their con­di­tion. The SeeColors app con­ducts a Color­lite Test, or C-Test, us­ing a smart­phone app. Hav­ing di­ag­nosed the de­fi­ciency’s type and level, the app then con­nects to the TV and ad­justs it to help the viewer ex­pe­ri­ence some­thing closer to ac­cu­rate color. About 8 per­cent of men and 1 per­cent of women have CVD, to­tal­ing 300 mil­lion peo­ple world­wide. The app is avail­able from San­sung’s Smart TV App store, Google Play, and the Gal­axy App Store for Gal­axy smart­phones.—MF
