Spectral Edge has unveiled Eye2TV, its new smart HDMI adapter for colour-blind TV viewers and gaming enthusiasts. The new, UK-developed product enhances video content for the estimated 4 per cent of the world’s population that suffers from colour-blindness, making it easy to distinguish between red and green features and enabling on-screen objects to be easily distinguished.
The Eye2TV adaptor works with any HDMI video source, such as a cable or satellite set top box, DVD player, Freeview/AppleTV/Roku box or games console. It connects between the video source and the display, which can be a HD TV or monitor with an HDMI input.
All video is then enhanced on a frame by frame basis through Spectral Edge’s patented Eyeteq image enhancement technology, offering a dramatically improved viewing experience. Based on research from the University of East Anglia (UEA), Eyeteq uses mathematical perception models to modify image colours.
The Eye2TV adapter is initially available via the Kickstarter website, where it can be purchased for £50 (€70) plus shipping.
