Thanks for starting this thread. I'm happy to answer any questions and encourage comments and suggestions.

Anyone interested in attending CE Week I can take care of a VIP courtesy badge and pre-register interested folks who email me a request. I need full name, address, cell # and email.

Hope to see many of my forum friends at our 11th annual TV Shootout!

Was looking at a LG 55UF7600. Edge lit scares me though.

Update as per Robert today:
Hi Mike,

No schedule at this moment, but I plan on live webcasting every TV Shootout session on June 24 and June 25 as they run through the day. The schedule is not confirmed, but it’s likely to be as follows:

Wednesday, June 24 1st Shootout is likely to be 11am and then 2pm and then 5pm

Thursday, June 25 1st Shootout is likely to be 10am and then 1 pm and then

We might have a 15 minute preview with the press only on Tuesday, June 23 at about 2 pm

These are estimates and the official schedule is not available yet. Hopefully we’ll know more by Monday evening.

-Robert

update will be posted as they become available.

Yes sir! We have very efficient Nationwide drop ship programs with every manufacturer.

Do you have any time available on June 23, 24 or 25?

As posted by Scott Wilkinson
AVS Editor


The four flagship UHD/4K televisions in the shootout are:

LG 65EG9600 OLED
Panasonic TC-65CX850U LCD (VA, FALD)
Samsung UN78JS9500 LCD (VA, FALD)
Sony XBR-75X940C LCD (VA, FALD)

I'm sure this list will raise some eyebrows among the AVS readership, so I'd like to address some of the inevitable questions here:

Why only four contenders? The number of mainstream TV manufacturers—other than those based in China—has been falling, and these are the only players left standing, along with Sharp and Vizio. However, the flagship Sharp UX30 and Vizio Reference Series will not be available as production units by then, which is why they're not in the running. The shootout only includes production units, not pre-production or engineering samples.

Why are the screen sizes not all similar? The Sony X940C is available only at 75", while the Panasonic CX850 and LG EG9600 max out at 65". We could have chosen the 65" version of the Samsung JS9500, but we decided that having two larger and two smaller screens was better than one larger and three smaller screens.

Why not include last year's winners, the LG 55EC9300 OLED and Samsung PN64F8500 plasma? They are both 1080p displays, and this year marks the first time that the shootout will include only UHD/4K TVs.

The shootout will be conducted several times during show hours on Wednesday, June 24 (11:00 AM to 7:30 PM), and again on Thursday, June 25 (9:30 AM to 3:00 PM). Each session will last about an hour and a half, and it will begin with opening remarks from Robert Zohn followed by an explanation of the calibration results and measurements as well as the test material and what to look for. On Wednesday, that explanation will be presented by Rob Sabin, editor of Sound & Vision magazine and SoundandVision.com; on Thursday, I will present that information. Then, participants will view the test material and fill out a scoring form, after which there will be an opportunity for some Q&A.

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.

Unfortunately I have to work during most of it, but can I come just for the 5PM shootout on Wednesday? Where is it being held in NYC, 18th street?

Thumbs up Shoot Out

Wow ! This will be a most interesting Shoot Out with only 4 UHDTVS being judged. The results will play heavily on my future purchase. .
