The UHD Alliance, a coalition that helps define display standards, announced that filmmaker mode will be coming to TVs from Samsung, TP vision and Kaleidescape. Lg, Panasonic, and Vizio previously expressed interest in bringing filmmaker mode to TVs.
Lg, Panasonic, and Vizio all confirmed that their TVs with filmmaker mode will be able to automatically turn it on. Panasonic said its 2020 OLED HD 2000 series will include the filmmaker mode.
Sony and TCL have not revealed which TVs will have filmmaker mode. Sony, TP vision, and Kaleidescape have not shared which TV providers will include filmmaker mode.
The goal of filmmaker mode is to make movies on TVs look a lot better. Many HD TVs have motion smoothing turned on by default, which applies a lot of post-processing to what you’re watching.
Motion smoothing is n’t the easiest thing to turn off, as you usually have to know what the setting is called on your specific TV.
The UHD alliance is standardizing the filmmaker mode name across all TVs that have the mode to turn on by default. You wo n’t have to dive into your TV’s settings just to see the Irishman the way Martin Scorsese wanted it.
Filmmaker mode has the backing of a number of directors, including Scorsese, J.J. Abrams, James Cameron, Ryan coogler, and Christopher Nolan.
