Joe Kane as well. :o :clap:

Quote from Robert also:

Just this second I was able to confirm our 2014 TV Shootout date for Saturday, August 16th beginning at 6PM and Sunday, August 17th at 3PM.

 I’ve been working very hard this year to make our 10th annual TV Shootout evolve and ascend with the times. To that end I have some very exciting news to announce:

 Dr. Larry Weber and Joe Kane will be joining us for the Shootout this year! They will be making special presentations that will interest our followers and the industry.

 For now here’s one more change for this year I can share. Our agenda has been upgraded; the manufacturer’s trainers who have been product feature presenters at all of our previous TV Shootout events will be replaced with each manufacturers’ senior executive and or a factory engineer.

 More information to come soon!

 Happy July 4th!

 -Robert

It's going to be the most interesting one yet... a ton of LCD, perhaps a plasma, and an OLED.

A carry-over F8500 from last year, perhaps?

It would be cool if they had the VT60/ZT60 there, although the F8500 did win last years Shootout (not counting experts' choices)... I hope the old KURO is still around. It's still good fun to see that thing kick ass every year :lol:

It would be absolutely "AWESOME!" if D-Nice could tune down the KURO to it's maximum potential, before comparing it to the OLED! I bet it even that would look a tiny bit grey during dark scenes in a pitch black room next to an OLED. :chin:

Just a quick heads up scheduled this weekend 8/16-17th:

UPDATE posted today at HDF
Here is the message that has just been posted:
***************
Just installed our new dedicated enterprise service to deliver guaranteed 70mbps
up and 150mbps down speeds to ensure reliable HD streaming of our moderated TV
Shootout webcast.  I need this Internet speed to deliver HD resolution without
compression so our Worldwide online viewers will enjoy the best possible video.

This second Internet service is totally separate from our dedicated broadband
service that our company uses for all other connections to the Internet.
