A while back we described in detail what the Filmmaker Fashion exactly on televisions. This mode allows you to ensure that the content you are watching is displayed ‘as it should’. Televisions can automatically switch to this mode when content is recognized or you can activate the mode manually.
Until now, Filmmaker Mode was optimized for viewing content in a darkroom. With the latest generation of the mode, that is about to change. From now on, the TV’s environmental sensor is used. This sensor analyzes the amount of light in the room and with that information the Filmmaker Mode can be optimized. A different picture setting is therefore chosen in a brighter room than in a dark room.
Now you probably think that televisions themselves already make a number of adjustments based on the amount of light in the room. The brightness, color temperature and other settings are then automatically adjusted. However, the disadvantage of this is that the subsequently selected image setting also makes other adjustments that may not lead to an optimal image. Think of motion settings or color settings that cause unnatural colors. The Filmmaker Mode ensures that only adjustments are made that cannot negatively affect the content.
Although the second generation of Filmmaker Mode has already been announced, it is not yet clear when the latest version will come to the first televisions.
