So this could be cool.

Vizio, LG and Panasonic have already announced their support for the Filmmaker Mode, while the UHDA has managed to rustle up a formidable selection of film industry luminaries willing to pledge their support for the feature. At the Filmmaker Mode launch event, in fact, the UHDA presented a video showing supportive interview clips with such giants of the film world as James Cameron, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, Ryan Coogler, Ava DuVernay, Ang Lee, Paul Thomas Anderson, the Duffer Brothers, JJ Abrams, M Night Shyamalan and Christopher McQuarrie.

Just be glad it doesn't affect audio. Imagine all your movies downgraded to 5.1 with deafening music and unintelligible dialogue.

In general I don't like the sound of this. It just sounds like it could be messy and crappy.

So it's a calibrated preset, that's cool. They're overstating this for AVS though, as most of us get our professionally calibrated (even if we have the resources to do it ourselves). I'm guessing they'll get color accuracy pretty close to on-point, if not measurably then at least visibly.

I just don't get why ordinary Movie preset isn't like this for televisions, though. Kind of defeats its purpose.

This is Nolan. Surround sound doesn't exist. You get one channel only, and you will be thankful it isn't used for a soundtrack from a record. It will be a talkie.

Remember, Nolan believes all the sound comes from the screen, where you see the action.

It’s not calibrated. That would require them to come to your home with a meter. This is just about getting basic settings right.

This is no different than your existing Movie preset. All this is about is unifying it under a single name across all manufacturers.

In a commercial theater it mostly does come from the screen.

This probably should have been done a few years back.

That’s just the start of the Filmmaker Mode’s activities, though. The full list of its technical specifications runs like this:

* It applies a D65 white point to both SDR and HDR content.

* It maintains source content frame rate and aspect ratio

* Motion interpolation is turned off.

* Overscanning is turned off unless content signals otherwise.

* Sharpening processing features are turned off.

* Noise reduction is turned off.

* Other image ‘enhancement’ processing is turned off.
Basically what we all do anyway. Handy button on the remote to have if you're at someone else's house though.

I skeptical that this will have any impact. Those of us who care about picture quality already make sure the display is properly set up. The vast majority of people don't care, and will not use it.

I read it as being an "opt out" scenario, an automatic implementation - the content will activate the mode on the display, the user does nothing.
