One of the novelties in TV functions that began to be implemented in 2020 was the so-called “Filmmaker Mode” or “Filmmaker Mode”, a configuration option that promised to offer the best picture settings in every picture. content according to the original intentions. from the creator.

It is a system designed by the UHD Alliance with the collaboration of filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese, Ryan Coogler, James Cameron, JJ Abrams, Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, M. Night Shyamalan, Ava DuVernay, Damien Chazelle , Ang Lee and Rian Johnson, among others, and who suggested disabling certain image post-processing functions, both manually and automatically on some LG TVs.

However, on the occasion of CES 2022, the creators of this display mode for televisions announced that a second version is in preparation, a natural evolution of the filmmaker mode with which they intend to cover a range of uses hitherto forgotten. : that of users who watch television in broad daylight.

According to Michael Zink, president of the UHD Alliance, the “phase 2” Filmmaker mode will focus on watching TVs in high ambient light conditions (unlike the first version which was apparently primarily intended to adjust the picture when there was little light in the room), and for this you will be able to access the information offered by the light sensors that some TVs integrate so that you can change the settings in different lighting conditions.

At this time, they have not commented on further details on which image parameters will be retouched and whether, unlike in the original mode, the contrast and brightness will vary automatically to provide better image quality, this which some midrange TVs and recordings already have, albeit without having this “official certification” from the UHD Alliance.
