Just wondering if we have any further news, who will be attending etc. I will take it the Kevin, DeWayne etc are going to be there also.

I really hope we have someone in the audience following/moderating online for questions etc. They did this for the 2011 shootout. :)

Would it be possible to have one of the Kuro's there for comparisons i wonder? :nod:

I'll be there again as usual, it's a great event and very informative 
I only wish Sony would bring in one of their XBR 950's to be reviewed.

I don't know if Robert has any available on-site, he did have one last year but it wasn't used during the shootout, because the shootout was confined to current year 3D panels. They did respond to online questions during the shootout, based on the quality and relativity of the posed questions. One of the former mods at HDJ (DavidJSchenck) handled that. But he wasn't there last year ?

Kinda tough to do that, do to the number of folks in attendance and glasses necessary to accommodate all,
 but I'm sure they will comment on the 3D capabilities of those sets being shown

I have seen that on AVForums, people have the idea that a retailer is having a shootout in the UK............they aren't they are getting people there to buy Panasonic TV's. The only way to do this properly is using the same format as in the US, using independent calibrators, manufacturers and an audience of experts and amateurs alike. :)
