Samsung Electronics, a global leader in the realm of technology, has proudly announced that its 2023 Neo QLED and QLED TV models have received the prestigious "Low Vision Care" certification from TÜV Rheinland.
This distinction underscores Samsung's unwavering commitment to inclusivity and accessibility in technology, as it strives to enhance image presentation and improve vision detection for viewers affected by Amblyopia, a common type of visual impairment.
Seok Woo Yong, Executive Vice President and Deputy Head of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, articulated the company's dedication to providing accessible technology.
"Technological innovation gains true meaning when it is available to everyone, so we're thrilled to receive this certification that underscores our work to build features to make viewing more accessible. Under Samsung's mission of 'Screens Everywhere, Screens for All,' we will continue to deliver premium screens that cater to the needs of every viewer," Yong.
In its pursuit of a more inclusive viewing experience, Samsung has developed the groundbreaking "Relumino Mode." This feature is specifically designed to enhance the viewing experience for consumers with various forms of low vision.
It achieves this by highlighting outlines and improving contrast and sharpness, making it easier for viewers to discern on-screen content and follow the action. Amblyopia, colloquially known as "lazy eye," afflicts approximately three per cent of children and is one of the more prevalent low vision issues during childhood.
In most cases of amblyopia, a child's brain neglects signals from one eye, leading to the development of pathways favouring the other eye.
TÜV Rheinland, a prominent international certification body, bestows the esteemed "Low Vision Care" certification after comprehensive evaluations of how technology impacts the user experience for individuals with amblyopia.
It conducts a battery of tests to compare the clarity, sharpness, and overall visual comfort of normal display modes against the innovative Relumino Mode.
In addition to the recent "Low Vision Care" certification, Samsung's screens have garnered a host of other notable accolades.
These include the "Circadian Rhythm Display" certification and "Eye Care" certification from Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE), as well as the "Glare-Free" validation from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for technologies that offer a safer and more comfortable viewing experience.
Samsung's screens have also received the "Pantone Validated" and "Skin Tone Validated" certifications from Pantone, attesting to their adherence to the organization's exacting colour accuracy standards.
The accumulation of these accolades underscores how innovation can profoundly influence the consumer experience with technology and further cements Samsung's status as a global leader in the realm of television technology over the past 17 years.
By focusing on accessibility and user experience, Samsung has demonstrated its commitment to making advanced technology accessible to everyone, regardless of their unique needs and challenges.
