Value Electronics Finds a New Venue for the the 2015 Flat Panel Shootout

Value Electronics’ Annual Flat Panel Shootout has embedded itself as a respected review component in the AV world. This coming week, the event is entering its 11th year, but newness is in the air; Robert Zohn (Owner, Value Electronics) and crew are moving the event to CE Week in New York City.




Yes, the Shootout is leaving the friendly confines of the independent AV retailer’s store and is venturing into the bowels of the City That Never Sleeps. The shootout will take place on CE Week’s show floor in downtown Manhattan from Wednesday June 24 through Thursday June 25. This kind of exposure is big for the event, and will undoubtedly help to gain the attention of more media and casual observers. We’ve had an opportunity to touch-base with Robert Zohn during the past few weeks, and he’s excited about the prospects of holding the event in such a large venue.

This year, Home Theater Shack will be in attendance. So stay tuned for boots-on-ground-coverage of the Shootout and the greater show at large. There are quite a few AV manufacturers scheduled to have show space, and we’ll keep you up to date on any big news or product information that is of relevance to the Home Theater world.

The 2015 Shootout should be especially interesting because both curved and flat 4K Ultra HD TVs (LCD and OLED) will be squaring off for the crown of “King of TV.” Specific models have been revealed, and they include: LG’s 65EG9600 (curved OLED UHDTV), Samsung’s UN78JS9500 (curved LCD UHDTV), Panasonic’s TC-65CX850U (flat LCD UHDTV), and Sony’s XBR-75X940C (flat LCD UHDTV). Noticeably absent are any standard 1080P models (which won the crown last year).

On Wednesday June 24, Rob Sabin (Editor-In-Chief of Sound and Vision Magazine) will perform technical presenter duties, describing the evaluation process and new technologies to attendees. Scott Wilkinson will perform the same duties on Thursday June 25. All four participating televisions will be judged on contrast ratio, peak brightness, black level, color accuracy, color saturation, motion resolution, lag input time, and energy efficiency. Media for the testing will include content from Blu-ray players, a 4K media server, and 4K streaming.

Anyone interested in attending the event should contact Robert Zohn at rzohn@valueelectronics.com.

Todd, thanks for posting this and most importantly for participating in person at our 11th annual 2015 Flat Panel TV Shootout evaluation event at CE Week.

I still have a few courtesy tickets available and they are the "all pass VIP badges". So attendees who pre-register through me have full access to the exhibit hall, Joe Kane's High Dynamic Range demo/presentation and Mark Walrup's Hi-Res Surround Sound demo.

All in all an exciting, fun and educational day for everyone interested in the art and science of audio and video and all of the bleeding edge technological advancements.

Hope to see many of my fellow forum friends at CE Week NY!

The Shoot Out is a couple days away, Wed 24th & Thurs. 25th

Has anyone discovered what time (N.Y. time) does streaming begin. I so want to watch from the start.

Jim,

Looks like streaming is only a maybe at the moment. Robert is working to make it happen, but it's very possible that it won't happen. I'll update here if I find out any more info.

Will the same calibrators be doing the honors this year? Wouldn't be the same without D-Nice!
