Spectral Edge together with University of East Anglia, United Kingdom, developed a smart HDMI adapter called Eye2TV. The device is designed to enhance the television viewing experience for colorblind users.
The device plugs into the HDMI port of the television and has an HDMI input port of its own.

A tiny modern graphic processing chips makes it available for video to identify and correct areas difficult for colorblind people to perceive.
The company claims that people with normal vision do not really see much difference in the corrected video, allowing everyone to watch the same screen together.
Eye2TV is currently being made available to television manufacturers to integrate it into their products, allowing users to select this feature from an on-screen menu.
