The Game of Thrones episode “The Long Night” aired just over a week ago to mostly positive reviews. While the scale of the Battle of Winterfall was praised, many viewers complained about how dark the visuals were. The fight scene in particular was difficult for viewers to follow because it had been shot in a cinematic style. According to GOT Cinematographer Fabian Wagner “it was an artistic choice as the battle was dark and claustrophobic.” He went on to say “I know it wasn’t dark because I shot it.” Despite this, many viewers were left squinting to see the action.
Today we want to tell you about two TVs we have here at Harvey Norman that produce stunning visuals, the kind that turn dark scenes into extraordinary cinematic experiences in your own home.
Sony Bravia 55″ 4K Ultra HD HDR OLED Smart TV
True reality comes to life with the Sony Bravia 55″ OLED Smart TV. Over 8 million self illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by its X1 Extreme processor. The Sony 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme includes powerful real time image processing for ultra detailed pictures. It upscales everything you watch to near 4K HDR quality, including those pesky dark scenes.
4K X Reality Pro also upscales every image closer to true 4K quality for remarkable clarity, with images sharpened and refined in real time. The TV also has Dolby Vision, the HDR solution that creates an immersive, engaging cinematic experience in your home (perfectly suited to “The Long Night”!)
The Sony Bravia 55″ OLED Smart TV also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
Panasonic 65″ 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
TVs with Adaptive Backlight Dimming constantly analyse incoming pictures so that they can continually adjust their light output to deliver the optimum picture quality. That’s exactly what the visually stunning Panasonic 65″ HD Smart LED TV does.
For TV episodes like “The Long Night”, IPS LED Super Bright technology works wonders. It injects more brightness into pictures by putting high-efficiency LED lights behind an exceptionally transmissive IPS panel. The TV also supports multiple HDR formats such as HDR10, the standard HDR format for films and UHD Blu-ray discs, and also Hybrid Log Gamma, the HDR format for broadcast TV.
