With colder days and darker nights, I have enjoyed coming up with ideas for the perfect nights in, from retro board games, trying my hand at cooking new dishes.
But my favourite has been movie nights, curled up on my sofa with a bowl of popcorn watching the new WITCHER series on my HDR TV.
What is HDR TV, you ask. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and is a great way to view 4K TV or content shown in 4K.
This is a photography term and refers to a technique to heighten a picture’s dynamic range – the contrast between the brightest whites and the darkest blacks.
Basically, this would have come in handy if you watched the last episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’, which were pitch black if you couldn’t change the contrast on your TV. A nightmare
The theory is, the higher the dynamic range, the closer a photograph gets to real life. HDR for televisions is the same idea.
This is excellent for a series like the WITCHER, which has incredible fight scenes, mythical transformation and sweeping landscape shots.
The HDR makes watching the series really come alive and makes each mythical monster seem real. Like they are about to jump through the TV and right at you.
The Witcher is a fantasy drama, based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski.
Set in a medieval world on a landmass known as the Continent. The Witcher follows the story of the monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg, and princess Ciri. Three people who find their destinies tied together.
The first season is based on The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny, a collection of short stories which precede the main Witcher saga.
Each episode is more memorable than the next, and I find myself cancelling planning so that I can stay in and watch this incredible series.
