So here's an idea... Make the arc of the TVs optimal for critical viewing by aiming all the screens at one spot in the room. Forget trying to position them optimally for the seated audience, that will never work (under the current configuration, members of the audience will always be off-axis relative to some of the TVs).
If all the TVs were aimed at a spot, and that spot was a typical viewing distance from the screens (10-15 feet), then when it came time to stand up and evaluate the TVs, the attendees could line up to stand in that spot. Have them make their determinations while looking at ALL the TVs from an optimal angle. Sure it would take a bit longer to get through the voting, but the front end of the shootout had quite a bit of chit-chat that could be abbreviated if need be. It's far better than asking people to rely on their memory as they move from one TV to the next.
