Panasonic has announced that it will include support the recently announced Filmmaker Mode on select OLED TVs from 2020.

Filmmaker Mode is a TV preset that disables certain TV post-processing, such as motion smoothing, sharpening, noise reduction and overscant, to better preserve creative intent.

It has been endorsed by a host of Hollywood creatives, including Rian Johnson, the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron and Ryan Coogler.

Panasonic says Filmmaker Mode will be available from a button on the remote control.

“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, of Panasonic, speaking at a press event on the Panasonic Booth.

“Modern televisions have extraordinary technical capabilities, and it is important that we harness these new technologies to ensure that the home viewer sees our work presented as closely as possible to our original creative intentions,” says Christopher Nolan. "Filmmaker Mode consolidates input from filmmakers into simple principles for respecting frame rate, aspect ratio, colour and contrast and encoding in the actual media so that televisions can read it and can display it appropriately.”

Panasonic told Inside CI that there are no plans to make 2019 screens backwards compatible with Filmmaker Mode.
