(June 13, 2022) Value Electronics has released details concerning its 2022 TV Shootout Evaluation. Set to be emceed by Caleb Denison (Digital Trends), the two-day event is tentatively slated to feature five different 4K TVs on day one, followed by three 8K TVs on day two. A panel of professional judges will ultimately decide this year's "King of 4K TV" and "King of 8K TV."
Much like last year, the Shootout is being held in partnership with Dealerscope, a leading business-to-business publication that focuses on consumer technology retail, with testing rigs and cables supplied by AVProStore. According to Robert Zohn, owner of Value Electronics, the event will begin at 9AM on Saturday, July 30, and will resume at 10AM on Sunday, July 31. Both days will be held at The Company Building, 335 Madison Avenue, New York City.
“This is a must-see event for all who are interested in the best video displays," explains Zohn. "We are excited to have two separate categories, 4K and 8K TVs, so the public can see how each display compares in these competitive classes. At the conclusion of the second day, we will put the winners of the 4K and 8K TV Shootout next to each other to demonstrate the visual perception of the differences we can all see between these two top-of-class 2022 TVs."
