On the occasion of CES, a new update of the Filmmaker mode or “Filmmaker mode” was unveiled by the UHDA (Ultra High Definition Alliance), incorporating ambient light sensors into the televisions

The alliance is, among other things, engaged in raising consumer awareness of Filmmaker technology. This one proves it once again by bringing substantial improvements to this mode, for a more optimal rendering.

A second phase aimed at preserving the intention of the filmmakers

Remember, the Filmmaker mode is an image preset that deactivates post-processing, which allows it to be displayed as the director intended. This therefore makes the cinematic experience more authentic. This picture mode was designed in response to filmmakers’ concern about the numerous picture adjustment parameters available on UHD televisions. The latter considered that the intentions they placed in their works were not always respected.

The second phase of the development of this technology focuses on ambient lighting. While a dark environment is ideal for watching content, bringing together good viewing conditions is not always possible. Faced with this problem, the president of the UHDA, Michael Zink explained working in concert with the ambient light sensors integrated into the televisions to operate a switch of the parameters in order to preserve the image and the creative intention of the filmmakers whatever be the light conditions.

Filmmaker mode is currently available on all newer TV models from Samsung, LG, Panasonic and various other brands. Some video streaming platforms such as Prime Video and Kaleidescape can now automatically implement this setting on LG TVs. Soon, the Filmmaker mode will also be added to the in-flight entertainment systems in airliners. American Airlines has already announced its intention to integrate this technology into the next aircraft scheduled to join its fleet in 2023.
