Looks like everyone mentioned all of these, and that's all I can think of . Can't wait.

Will the LG 50PG7000 be available by 7/18?

I would like to see an LCD thrown into the mix for comparison sake. I think the Samsung 81 series LCD would be a good choice.

I agree, but I'd also throw in a XBR4. The 81-series is one of the only LCD's that has a highly reflective screen, which is not considered "normal" of an LCD. Having them both there, as well as the latest Sharp D94 or even the 52A650, would be very interesting.

Just heard, Pioneer is sending a PDP engineer from Japan, PDP specialist, a national trainer and the regional manager to our shoot-out so four Pioneer Elite specialists will be here to present and answer ANY and ALL questions. Many more special guests attending so this will be a premier event.

And thanks to JWhip for sending Mr. Ford to p/u Alex, but sorry Alex I do not intend on sharing any customers with you.

Damn, Robert you're the man!

Can you please include Vidikron?
post #44 of 1057
.. Robert, I take it from your non-response to my earlier question regarding some sort of visuals, either thru pic's or live-feed, that you will 'not' be sharing anything for the AVS board members to exchange input on. This was done during your LCD shoot-out last Fall & many enjoyed the highlights from that show.

I don't think this model has even been confirmed in NA.

Robert, any shot of comparing a Pro 150 with a Pro 151? I'd love to see the improvement from the 8g to 9g! If so I'd love to attend.

Anyone want to volunteer to help set up an IP cast or would Skype work OK? I have a static IP address.

Hey Robert! I don't know if there would be an opportunity to have the Pioneer folks talk and show about the possible integration with the new Pio blu-ray player and receiver. Probably, it's a little too off topic in a plasma shoot-out. But I bet there would be a lot of folks interested in learning more about that.
post #51 of 1057
Wow! Can this shoot out get any more exciting!

It would be nice to see the Panasonic 50PZ800U in comparison to the PDP-5020 since some are saying that the (THX cert) panny would have more accurate color than the non-elite 5020 and so seeing how the color capabilities compare in the shootout would be great.

The PZ850 has the 120% gamut Digital Cinema Color (DCC) (and hence NO THX cert apparently) so it may not be an appropriate comparision...

I must say this shoot-out is looking very good

I would throw a CRT in there for good measure; something with really great blacks, like a Panasonic (as Sony's tend to glow an almost unrecognizable, but yet visible glow compared to shadow mask based HD CRT's). Back to plasma, I am most interested in LG's new PG7000, they will be getting my money this year if they can truly pull off 0 idling luminance.

I've got an old Panny CRT (2005) and the blacks are incredible, the TV looks off in dark room with a full black screen. The afterglow was a big disadvantage since blacks were easily lightened when anything bright was near them. Once TVs can achieve that kind of black level with the clarity and sharpness of todays TVs I'll be in HT heaven.

Robert, maybe you should do it like a wine tasting -- double-blind with the bezels hidden behind brown paper wrapping. You could then ask everyone to grade each panel 0 to 5 based on several different intereasting qualities (black level, color accuracy, etc.) :-)

have a great time!

Casey

soloist i think any crt that would be a good seller are done they are over no more...

Any one care to be the "official" AVS reporter and do a complete write up of the events for those of us who can't make it? Obviously personal taste has a lot to do with what panels people like better, but being able to see them all side by side and not in a B&M is fantastic. A report of strengths and weaknesses of each one when directly compared would be fantastic.........wait it just hit me, to go along with the report how about a live webcam or something? Obviously the quality will not come thru the webcam but if there will be presentations, that could be very helpfull to listen to people discuss the panels.

Anyways just ideas, regardless of if any of this can be done, im sure it will be a great event for those that get to attend.

I just updated my AVS Forum/Kuro page with new photos and included a link to Pioneer's video with famous Cinematographers, sound mixers and colorists. Very cool commentaries and stories from well know movie makers. Pioneer had an unabridged version they showed us at the Elite dealer road show and I am trying to get a copy for our AVS Forum shoot-out event next month.

Take a look here.

robert looks like im one step ahead of you i already saw that video, for uneducated people they simply say its advertising but for those who know its not true

btw i didnt knew you had warehouse's besides NY I reside in california sometimes i go to vegas for house vacation, but its not enough to be considerd 250 miles for an elite sale?

i might have to ask a friend in bestbuy to buy it at his cost if i cant find a good price on the PRO-111FD

no more off topic if you wish a pm would be nice
