Filmmakers, Hollywood Studios, consumer electronics companies and the UHD Alliance have collaborated to make this next-level home theater viewing experience possible. By disabling all post-processing (e.g. motion smoothing, etc.) and preserving the correct aspect ratios, colors and frame rates, Filmmaker Mode enables your TV to display the movie or television show’s content precisely as it was intended by the filmmaker.

Launch partners include LG, Panasonic, and Vizio. Importantly, the mode is supposed to kick in automatically when cinematic content is detected. Important, because — according to the UHD Alliance — 85 percent of TV owners never change the factory default settings.
