Just happened to rewatch the entire series of Harry Potter, though this time on stunning ultra HD 2160p, better known as 4K, format.
Audio System used Anthem MRX 720 AVR with speakers of Dali - Rubicon 8, LCR for surrounds and Opticon LCR as surround back with Dali E12F sub. This release comes with an excellent DTS:X track. Though there was no Dolby Atmos mix here, but the DTS:X really does deliver from start to finish here. The sound effects are fluid in transition from speaker to speaker and very loud. It really immerses you into the entire magical world of Hogwarts. Simpler sounds such as the students walking from class to class along the insane stairwells sound impressive. I loved it.
Projection system used was Sony VPL 1100ES. The 4K upgrade added so much depth and details into the already stunning frames of the movie. Everything just looks smoother and more realistic with better detail and exquisite color. Each scene has more clarity and it's easier to see background items in the lower lit hallways of Hogwarts here. In these films, there is so much going on in each scene.Every part of the picture is perfectly clear. In close-ups, every visual effect and facial feature is striking. Look at Dumbledore's bear hairs. You can see each scraggly strand easily. Even the full CGI three-headed dog looks excellent with every computer generated hair standing out. You'll even be able to see the wax drippings from all the candles in the movie. Wider shots look just as good with school inform textures looking great and individual hairs popping out when the many students are going from class to class. The heavier CGI work on the Quidditch field also looks incredible without any softness to talk about.
Colors are vibrant in all locations, from the dreary England country setting to the brightness of the grand hall of Hogwarts. The warmer colors, including the reds, oranges, and yellows all have distinct layers to them, depending on how they are shown on screen, but always have a brightness to them that other releases lack, thanks to the new HDR here. The green colors of Slytherin and the green landscapes surrounding Hogwarts are all rich and bold. Black levels are very deep and inky without any crush and skin tones are natural at all times. There are no issues with any aliasing, banding, or video noise here, making this new HDR 4K image simply outstanding.
I wish you were here to witness the spectacle.
