Robert Zohn, founder and president of Value Electronics, commented, “Our Shootout has proven to be a ‘must attend’ event among true video enthusiasts and industry leaders each year, demonstrating how the premium TVs perform and compete with each other. With the continuation of Ultra HD and OLED as well as the great advancements of TV technologies, this will be a great year for flat panel displays.”
“In addition to the tested panels, several manufacturers are expected to display and provide information about advanced products that will launch in the future, with image and audio that provides a true reference quality for the audiophile and videophile,” Mr. Zohn added.
