The annual shootout will crown a new 4K Ultra HD TV champion next week.
Value Electronics, a leading independent audio video retailer in Westchester County, NY, has announced plans to host its 13th Annual TV Shootout during the upcoming CE Week tradeshow. The event will be held on June 22 and June 23 in New York City.
"Our TV Shootout has proven to be a 'must attend' event among true video enthusiasts and industry leaders each year, demonstrating how the premium TVs perform and compete with each other," said Robert Zohn, found and president of Value Electronics. "With the continuation of Ultra HD and OLED as well as the great advancements of TV technologies, this will be a great year for flat panel displays."
Every year, the Value Electronics TV Shootout places the industry's best TVs side by side in order to choose the new "King of UHD TV." The selected TV models will be measured and compared against each other based on various display aspects, including contrast ratio, peak brightness, black level, color accuracy, color saturation, motion resolution, lag input time, and energy efficiency. The audience will then vote on each of four picture quality attributes to determine a winner. Joel Silver of the Imaging Science Foundation will host the event. Likewise, professional TV reviewers, professional ISF certified calibrators, and product specialists will also be on hand. Sessions will be conducted on June 22 and June 23 and a Q&A will be held at the end of each presentation.
Currently there are three TVs confirmed for this year's shootout:
Samsung's 78-inch KS9800 FALD LCD
Additional displays could be added to the competition as well. AV enthusiasts who are interested in attending the shootout can email Value Electronics for an invite. And for those who can't attend, the event will be available to view online through a live webcast. High-Def Digest will be on hand at the competition, so stay tuned next week for more details and impressions from the shootout!
