Riz and tele, actually we're going to see if we can get 3D glasses that will sync to all or at least most of the displays.

WashedOut, I loved the Elite TV and it won our 2011 Shootout and came in second in the 2012 evaluation. But at this time it's a 3 year old model and even if I wanted to put it in Sharp does not have any available.

Regarding Sony we'd like to have the HX950 and if they are not discontinued it will be in, if it's history then we'll consider the new W800A. But no guaranty that the W800A will make it into the 2013 Shootout as it will have to pass our Shootout evaluation tests to be accepted by our panel of experts.

Since I've had a lot of folks asking if the ZT60 will be included in our 2013 Flat Panel Shootout, I will confirm that it will be included.

I can't announce all of the models that will be in the Shootout, but the 65" ZT60 will be a contestant.

I'll also have the VT60 in the Shootout, and it will be butt up to the ZT60 and Samsung F8500.

Let the games begin....

Sadly no reply from Sony, but they don't need to reply as we decide on what displays are in the Shootout. All I'm trying to figure out is if the HX950 will available for the rest of 2013. If it's end of life 2012 model we'll go ahead with Sony's W800A.

We have not completed our testing of every Manufacturer's flagship display yet so we don't have a list of the finalists that will make it into the Flat Panel Shootout evaluation.

Our final list of the displays that make the cut is scheduled to be announced the week of April 29th or sooner.

Okay HDF members I need your advice about an important decision pertaining to our Shootout evaluation event. Here's my dilemma...

I had planned on putting in Sony's HX950, but unfortunately Sony has discontinued that model. So our choices are the 4k UHD X900A or Sony's highest end 1080p full HD W802A.

The dilemma is that the Shootout has only flagship series, but if we put the X900A it will be the only 4k UHD panel in the event and that's kind of unfair to all of the other displays.

My tentative decision is to put the highest-end W802A 1080p on the Shootout wall to compete with all of the other 1080p displays, but to also have the 4k UHD X900A on an adjacent wall just to show it off and do a brief comparison with the same Shootout wall content, but not to include it in the Shootout evaluation.

I can't post on AVS Forum or HDJ, but I will post this on Blu-ray.com and HTS as I would love to have as many a/v enthusiasts' feedback as possible.

Thanks for your help.

-Robert
