Panasonic is bringing 'Filmmaker Mode' to OLED TVs from 2020

At IFA, Panasonic has confirmed that it will bring 'Filmmaker Mode', developed in collaboration with Hollywood, to select TVs from 2020. The picture mode will be accessible via a button on the remote control

Filmmaker Mode on Panasonic TVs

If you want a Panasonic TV with the recently announced 'Filmmaker Mode', you must be prepared to wait a bit longer. Like Vizio, Panasonic will support the new picture mode on OLED TVs from 2020. Filmmaker Mode applies to both SDR and HDR video where it disables the TV's video processing systems such as motion smoothing, sharpening, noise reduction, overscan, and more. It also preserves colors and frame rate. It will be consistently named as 'Filmmaker Mode' across all compatible TVs from all brands.

- "As per our message of Hollywood to your Home, Panasonic strongly believes in delivering the creative intent as accurately as possible to our viewers. Accordingly, we were happy to support and lend our weight to this initiative – we believe that is important, especially with so many prominent filmmakers also behind it,” said Yasushi Murayama, Panasonic. Panasonic added that the picture mode "will be accessible easily via a button on the remote control". The UHD Alliance, who brought together TV makers and Hollywood for the initiative, says that the mode can also engage automatically through the use of metadata in the signal. However, it is not clear exactly how it will work and it sounds as if Panasonic TVs will not support this capability initially. LG also supports the initiative but has yet to announce details.

Filmmaker Mode for TVs

Filmmaker Mode is supported by Hollywood directors such as Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk, Interstellar and the Dark Knight Trilogy), Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood, Phantom Thread), Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street, The Departed, Goodfellas), James Cameron (Titanic, Avatar) and Ryan Coogler (Black Panther, Creed).
