    We're holding our 2017 TV Shootout TM evaluation event in conjunction with CE Week NY on 7/12 - 13, 2017.

    Joel Silver of ISF and Kevin Miller of ISF TV will be running the event this year along with Matt and Jeff Murray of AV Pro Store.

    Joel and Kevin made a significant change to the event this year. They are inviting a top professional team of judges as the panel of experts to vote on the attributes of picture quality to determine "Who makes the world's best TV?" So the evaluation event will be judged by professional colorists, contrast graders, and video engineers.

    Very exciting year for our 2017 TV Shootout!

    Another change this year is my personal VIP invite list gets full access to the CE Week show floor, the private press room, special access to all private press events before the show opens to the public, the TV Shootout event and all of CE Week's full calendar of special events all at no charge. Value Electronics invited guests will be pre-registered and issued an all access badge.

    Members of AV NIRVANA can email me at rzohn@valueelectronics.com to be included in our exclusive VIP advance registration.

    I wish there was some way I could make it up there, but those are likely going to be bad days for me.

    Me too. I believe I should be able to next year though. Won't have a full time job weighing me down! :T

    I'm heading up there to cover the event for a day... don't think I can stay overnight in Manhattan this year. So, train up and back. ;-)

    Looking forward to it!

    I look forward to reading this year's results. I might finally replace my beloved Samsung plasma.

    I am so glad you can make it, Todd. I want to go but that week is turning out to be a bad one to be away for me. We really need to have someone there.

    Following along enthusiastically! It'll be more than interesting to learn about these top-shelf displays. Someday I hope to see a shootout of budget, bang-for-the-buck models.

    For the 2017 TV Shootout evaluation event Joel Silver and Kevin Miller have changed the voting to be a panel of video experts. All previous years we used the TV Shootout attendees to determine the new "King of TV". We have a few positions open to add to the panel of expert judges.

    If you are interested in participating on the expert panel at the 2017 TV Shootout please email me a brief introduction with your credentials and I'll pass them along to Joel and Kevin.

    Our 2017 TV Shootout will be held in conjunction with CE Week NY, July 12 - 13, 2017.

    Email me with any questions, comments or to be considered for the expert panel position. rzohn@valueelectronics.com

    Of course we are expecting the best write-up of anyone attending... and it should be stellar coming from you Todd, knowing how well you write. We can't leave any detail uncovered. :T

    I think that it's good that Robert's going with a panel of experts to determine the winner. I would think it would end up being unanimous but we'll see.

    Where are you staying Todd?
