The annual TV competition will be held later this month.
Value Electronics will hold its 2018 TV Shootout on September 23. The event will feature a head-to-head competition between some of the industry's top 4K Ultra HD displays in order to determine the year's "King of TV" -- and High-Def Digest will be on hand to participate on the panel of judges.
The Shootout will begin at 11am at the Value Electronics store in Scarsdale, NY with a series of industry presentations and display tests. The 14th annual competition will be webcast live and is set to feature a mixture of test patterns and real world content to help evaluate the various picture quality attributes of the competing TVs, including contrast, color fidelity, color saturation, motion resolution, input lag time, and off axis image quality. In addition, the evaluation will place a heavy emphasis on HDR performance, including HDR contrast range, P3 color fidelity, color volume, and EOTF.
An expert panel of judges and attendees will then vote on each TV's performance for each category for both pre and post calibration conditions and for day and night ambient light viewing.
The TVs will all be randomly sourced from the store's inventory rather than specifically supplied for the competition by the manufacturers. Though additional TVs are still under consideration for inclusion in the event, here's a list of the confirmed competitors as of press time:
And here's a detailed rundown of the Shootout's testing methodology per the press release:
