Despite being new to AVS and not as knowledgeable as many here, I nevertheless wonder if it wouldn't be prudent to limit the total number of sets in the shoot-out to a number wich is easily manageable for you, since a large number could be overwhelming to viewers and have a negative effect on evaluations. I know that when I've spent too long looking at (possibly) too many sets, I'd develop a case of eye fatigue and a slightly fried brain; sometimes headaches ensue. This happens even with plasmas, which are not usually as bright as LCDs. And trying to check out too many TVs (more than, say, 4 or 5 at a time), I lose track of my impressions and have to go look at them again, which gets my eyes tired even more.
But if they'll all be calibrated, the reduced brightness will help mitigate tired eyes. Room lighting will surely be controlled in your setup as well. And despite the total number of TVs, if they're presented in small groups as opposed to one big one, it may help produce more solid evaluations. And as long as they're all arranged logically, it shouldn't matter too much if a particular set isn't next to another; everything can't be next to everything anyway.
