Samsung Electronics has unveiled a new enhancement for its 2023 TV and monitor range, the SeeColors mode. This latest accessibility feature caters to individuals with color vision deficiency [CVD] by offering a range of color settings tailored to different degrees and types of CVD. By incorporating SeeColors mode into their screens, Samsung aims to deliver an improved viewing experience for users.
With SeeColors mode, users can choose from nine picture presets, allowing them to select the setting that suits them best. The feature adjusts RGB levels on screen, aiding viewers with CVD to discern colors based on their condition.
Initially launched as a standalone application in 2017, SeeColors enabled individuals with CVD to enjoy their screens with greater clarity. Now, Samsung has integrated this feature into the accessibility menus of their TVs and monitors, making it more readily accessible to users. 2023 model owners can update devices via software to add SeeColors feature in accessibility menu, even after purchase.
Samsung’s accessibility efforts earned them the “Color Vision Accessibility” certification from TÜV Rheinland, recognizing SeeColors’ effectiveness. This certification further underscores Samsung’s dedication to inclusivity, aligning with their vision of “Screens Everywhere, Screens for All.”
Seokwoo Jason Yong, EVP of Visual Display at Samsung, excitedly announced more accessibility features in the 2023 TV and monitor lineup. Alongside SeeColors, Samsung also introduced the Relumino mode, designed to assist individuals with low vision. By continually innovating and bringing inclusive technologies closer to consumers, Samsung aims to ensure that everyone can enjoy their screens to the fullest extent possible.
