    Just signed on to host my 2019 TV Shootout evalueaiton event with CE Week NY at the Jacob Javits on Wednesday, June 12, 2019. This year we brough in Joel Silver, Scott Wilkinson, Kevin Miller and John Reformato to calibrate the displays, moderate the event and be part of our special VIP presenters program.

    Our panel of expert judges are made up of Hollywood Post Prodution colorists, finishers, respected TV reviewers and video engineers. We'll also have the public voting and I will publish the voting results of the professional judges and video enthusists public who attend.

    We're planning to webcast the event live and have a moderated chat room so off site viewers can partisipate in the event.

    The premium TVs all look excepional this year so we're expecting this to be one of the best TV Shootouts since I created the event 15+ years ago.

    CE Week's management gave me VIP badges that only require pre-registeed by me personally for any of my personal guests. So all members and visitors of Home Theater Forum can be pre-registered with VIP all access badges and with no fee. Email me if you can attend and I'll put you on CE Week's pre-registered VIP list.

    Also at CE Week I was invited to be on the 8K discussion panel that will be June 13th.

    This year's TV Shootout will be on Wednesday, June 12th. We're hosting the event with CE Week NYC at the Jacob Javits convention center. When we hold the TV Shootout at our showroom it's always on a Saturday or Saturday and Sunday.

    We are considering a second 2019 TV Shootout the end of August that will be for all of the new 8K TVs coming out this year and we'll also include the winner of the June 12th 4K HDR TV Shootout.

    Just signed on with Youtube celebrity SpareChange to take care of the live feed of our 2019 TV Shootout. The channel will be moderated by the channel owner Shane so our Worldwide viewers can see, hear, ask questions and comment live during the entire event.

    I love SpareChange's video at our 2018 TV Shootout and look forward to working with Shane again this year for our complete live coverage this year.


    Sign up here to see and participate in the Q&A if you can't attend in person.
