For the fourth year in a row, the Annual TV Shootout was dominated quite handedly by LG Electronics. Though there was some discussion regarding a close margin of error in one of the three categories (which resulted in an unexpected honorable mention), LG swept the three-category competition to take home all of the hardware in this year's TV Shootout.
Throughout the week professional calibrators Joel Silver, Founder and President of the Imaging Science Foundation, and Kevin Miller, President of ISFTV and Industry Consultant, used top-of-the-line equipment to put the TVs through a series of stress tests.
In a change from years past, the TV Shootout judging process was altered to help raise the profile of the event. Rather than open the competition up to an audience vote to help crown the top TV, a panel of expert judges was brought in to score the TVs across three different categories. Those categories included Studio Lighting/Home Theater, HDR Performance, and Streaming Performance.
