I'm pretty sure (though not absolutely certain) it will be San Diego again next year.

I believe Gillietalls is talking about Dolby Vision in Sony's UHD Blu-ray players. No manufacturer has said anything about Dolby Vision in consumer projectors.

Any chance we'll hear about a Z9 successor? Didn't the Z9 come out this time last year?

CEDIA has an interactive show planner feature on their website that you can view on your phone, but I like to have a printout with my notes on each vendor directly on the map. That makes it a lot easier to navigate and zero in on what I'm looking for. Posted below is my plan for this year with notes on the products I hope to see. I've divided up the show floor into numbered blocks with a page on each area. I highlighted the booths in red (high interest) or blue (general interest) that were either important vendors or had a particularly interesting product. CEDIA keeps making minor changes in the map as the show gets closer, so this is where things are as of Thursday 8/31.

The major home theater DEMO's are at the back of the hall in sound rooms SR1 to SR18 in blocks A6 to A7. The dARTS theater demo is booth 5755 in block A1. The Alcons theater demo is on the second floor in room 25C. I hope this may be helpful to anyone that's going next week to assist your own planning for the event. Have fun! See you there at the AVS meet-up at Sony on Saturday.

Cool

Scott,
Since I live in San Diego, I will be
there if it is open to the public.
If its not open to the public, I will be there if I can get past security.
Looking forward to meeting you either way.

Rusty there are plenty of free pass codes posted in another thread, in the projectors over 3k section, register and take in the whole show, except for the fee based education sessions. Register on line and pick up you badge when you come.

Security is relatively tight for the show and you will likely be stopped without a badge.
qwho51 and imagic like this.
