Value Electronics is Set to Crown the New 'King of TV'

full?d=1499980151.jpg
(September 13, 2018) Fresh on the heels of helping LG Electronics display and demo its highly affordable HU80KA CineBeam Projector at CEDIA 2018, Robert Zohn and his well-regarded retail outlet – Value Electronics – is prepped and ready to crown a new King of TV. This year, the annual TV Shootout is moving back to Value Electronics’ Scarsdale, NY retail location, shedding its loose relationship with New York City’s yearly CE Week event.

Scheduled to begin at 11am on Sunday, September 23rd, the TV Shootout will tap a brain trust of expert judges and attendees to identify the best performing television on the market. A variety of performance variables will be considered, including contrast, color fidelity, color saturation, motion resolution, input lag time, and off axis performance. Each television will be evaluated during day and night viewing conditions in both pre- and post-calibrated states.

The event is confirmed to include the following OLED and LCD flagship models sourced directly from Value Electronics’ inventory:
  • LG’s OLED65E8PUA
  • Samsung’s QN75Q9FN
  • Sony’s XBR-65A9F
  • Sony’s XBR-75Z9F
Value Electronics has arranged for a number of industry experts to participate and speak at the event. According to the retailer, speakers will include David Mackenzie (discussing video processing and compression), Matt Murray and Brent McCall (transition from HDMI 2.0 to 2.1 and potential effects on consumers), John Reformato (out of box performance versus pro-calibrations and Comparison of DeltaE 2000 & Delta ICtCp), and Stacey Spears (DCI and BT.2020 color gamut, color saturation, and HDR). Additional speakers include Tyler Pruitt (of SpectraCal), DeWayne Davis (AV Fidelity), David Abrams (Avical) and David Medina (HBO).

All televisions will be calibrated using SpectraCal’sCalMAN software and a range of topflight pattern generating and measurement gear, matched to a Sony BMV-X300 professional color grading monitor. Other reference equipment includes AVPro’s Edge for uncompressed 18Gig HDMI distribution and four Panasonic UB820 Blu-ray players.

The annual TV Shootout has routinely stood as one of the industry’s most intriguing must-attend yearly events. Anyone interested in attending the TV Shootout can register by contacting Robert Zohn at rzohn@valueelectroincs.com.

I am excited.

As far as I know, it will be streamed this year. I'm already planning to have a hot pizza sitting on my lap as I watch the event.

The scoring so far was by the pros.

The audience will be scored later on.

Did Robert use only the pro scores to determine the winner or could it change when the audience has theirs tabulated?
