Spectral Edge offers insight into technology to help people with colour blindness

He was interviewed by Insight Radio, the radio station of the RNIB, about Eyeteq. It is a mathematical image processing technology based on world-leading research that has been transformed from the laboratory to a product by Spectral Edge, which is based at the ideaSpace West site.

With careful design using mathematical perception models, Eyeteq re-maps colours so that colourblind people enjoy a new level of detail as well as an enhanced overall appearance whilst maintaining an acceptable or even preferable image for non-colourblind people.

Eyeteq is suitable for any device which captures, processes or displays images and has applications for television, video, set top boxes, computers, tablets and mobile phones. Trials are currently being undertaken to integrate the Eyeteq software in set top boxes.
