No exact date, but likely a little later than the 10 previous years, which have ranged from early June to late August.

This year we'd like to include all of the highly anticipated 2015 TVs and some late arrivals we're likely to hold out for are LG's flat OLED, Sony's 75X940C and Sharp's Beyond 4K TV that boasts there newly developed 12bit IGZO panel with 66 billion pixels, BT2020 and P3, DCI capable and of course full array locally dimmed.

This will be a serious heavyweight championship battle of very worthy full array locally dimmed displays and LGs flat and curved OLED TVs; all will be in the large screen UHD class.

Okay here's the scoop. I just signed on to have our 11th Annual 2015 Flat Panel TV Shootout evaluation event at CE Week in NYC on Wednesday, June 24 and Thursday June 25, 2015. The official press release and more information on the event is on my website and posted on CE Week's website.

The TVs that made the cut to be included in the 2015 TV Shootout are:

  • LG's 65EG9600 OLED
  • Panasonic's TC-65CX850U, Back-lit
  • Samsung's UN78JS9500, Back-lit
  • Sony's XBR-75X940C, Back-lit

Like CES and CEDIA, CE Week is a Trade Only show. But, as part of our deal we are offering any a/v forum member free access to CE Week exhibits, Mark Waldrep's Hi Res Surround sound demo and our 2015 TV Shootout at no charge and with a special VIP advance registration. If you are interested in taking advantage of this no charge VIP courtesy entrance to this well respected CE trade only convention just email me at [email protected] All I need is an email with your full name, address, cell phone and email address and you will be pre-registered with a badge ready to p/u with your photo ID.

In honor of the TVs that were chosen for the event we are putting them on sale. I just listed Samsung's JS9500 series with a special TV Shootout offer. For example the 78" flagship JS9500 was $15k, now $9,848 and an extra discount on any of Samsung's curved soundbars.

Hope to see many of you at CE Week!

Yes we are planning on streaming the event live, but not for you as I'm hoping you will participate in person. :)

Jim, On the NY end Newark or JFK is best for non stop flights from many of the CA airports. LGA is the smallest and easiest to get in and out of, but Newark and JFK have many non stop flights from many CA cities and on many carriers.

NYC is beautiful in late June and I hope you and your wife will make it a memorable NYC early summer vacation here.

Thanks Jim.

NYPete, thanks for emailing me your registration request!

Joe Kane is sharing the TV Shootout room with us to demonstrate and present on HDR. Mark Waldrep, President of AIX Records s also demonstrating Hi-Res Surround sound in the TV shootout room.

Your VIP courtesy pass/badge gets you access to all three events in the TV shootout room as well as the full CE manufacturers exhibits.

Look forward to seeing you at CE Week and our 2015 TV Shootout!


Sounds really great. Can't wait. I'll be emailing you Robert. I think having 4 TVs, and maybe last years winners, I don't know if that is the plan, will actually make the event more manageable. It was great seeing so many large TVs last year, but it made it a little awkward, especially the 110" curved Samsung.

Robert, some of the TVs in the shootout will be capable of showing HDR content. After hearing from Joe Kane on HDR's potential, I am excited to see some HDR. I know content may be hard to come by, but is there any possibility of getting some HDR content from your industry contacts to show off these magnificent TVs, even if not part of the actual competition?:praying:
I have some free VIP passes/badges still available. Just email me with you name and I'll take care of the registration and have your badge pre-printed ready for p/u at the registration desk. Photo ID required for badge p/u.

Hope to see many of my forum friends at CE Week NYC and our 11th annual 2015 Flat Panel TV Shootout.

Thanks John! Very happy you were able to attend our 11th annual 2015 Flat Panel TV Shootout.
