A new "King of TV" has been crowned!
Value Electronics has announced the winner of its 2019 TV Shootout event. The competition was held earlier today as part of CE Week at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC. And now that the dust has settled, an overall winner has been named: the Sony XBR-65A9G OLED.
The competition placed four flagship displays side-by-side as test patterns and demo content from a variety of films were used to judge various picture quality attributes, including dynamic range, color accuracy, color saturation, and motion resolution. A panel of professional video colorists, finishers, TV reviewers, and video scientists then voted on all of the categories to select 2019's "King of TV."
Here's a rundown of the overall placing based on the judges' scores:
The 2019 competition was the event's 15th year and now marks the second year in a row that Sony's flagship OLED has come away with the top prize. TVs used in the competition were taken randomly from Value Electronics' inventory and no manufacturer supplied samples were used. The TV Shootout used switching, distribution, HDMI cables, and test equipment supplied by AVProStore and Metra Home Theater. Scott Wilkinson served as moderator for the event, and the tests were presented by Joel Silver of the Imaging Science Foundation and Kevin Miller of ISFTV.
