“I’ve now seen the Filmmaker Mode demonstrated up close, watching it instantly adjust an out of the box VIZIO 4K consumer display to line up with a $30K Sony reference monitor used widely by directors to grade their films. It’s stunning how well it works.” - Bill Hunt, The Digital Bits (FMM is) designed to take the legwork and confusion out of optimizing TV pictures for watching films and high-end TV shows by applying a host of picture ‘rules’ under a single, easy to find option. All with a view to matching as closely as possible the images created by filmmakers in their mastering studios. (FMM) will do a better job of calibrating the color, brightness, and contrast of the screen so it looks more like what the filmmaker sees when they’re creating the movies and shows you watch. This new "Filmmaker Mode" for supported TV models is aimed at giving viewers a consistent, cinematic representation of images as the filmmakers intended, in terms of color, contrast, aspect ratio and frame rates. The move towards unifying TV naming conventions is enormously positive. It might not be a silver bullet to make content automatically look amazing on every single TV, but if nothing else, it should make it a little less intimidating to try and configure the biggest screen in your house.
