Chapter 1 Introduction
UniColor Pro is the software that reproduces the views experienced by people with some sort of color
deficiency (strong protanopia, deuteranopia and tritanopia) on your monitor.
1-1. Features
UniColor Pro is built on hardware-based simulations that allow the user to control colors displayed on
themonitor using the computer via a USB interface. Therefore, it is different from competitors’ products
which need to convert images one by one by using software. With our product, the user can convert and
view all of the images displayed on the monitor, even movies, in real time. Furthermore, using the Screen
Capture function, you can save images displayed on the monitor.
UniColor Pro can be used to simulate protanopia, deuteranopia and tritanopia. For details of each color
vision type, refer to the “Color Universal Design Handbook”.
If the brightness of your monitor is low, yellow color may look reddish during color vision simulation.
However, it has no effect on the performance to check the difficulty of color distinction.
