Guys, I was watching Vincent's new video on YouTube explaining the scores of his TV evaluation event. And the AG9 got scored 4th with tone mapping. And I was puzzled, I don't like Sony's Dolby vision implementation that uses Dolby's customised tone mapping, but with hdr 10 Sony's tone mapping is very good, their dynamic tone mapping that always works with hdr10 is definitely better than lg's DTM imo. And still the event rated LG as the best in tone mapping and Sony as the last, even behind Samsung qled. That's what happens when you have a bunch of scatterbrains from the public doing the evaluation and you don't involve professionals in the scoring.
And the colour accuracy scoring is also questionable, they played a movie scene from Kingsman secret service and asked the public guys to rate colour accuracy. You don't rate colour accuracy by eye looking at a movie scene, imo it is unscientific. Only a colorimeter can correctly tell you colour accuracy, and that's how scientifically it should be done, see the colour delta errors both pre and post calibration using a meter on all the TV's and rate colour accuracy on basis of that.This scoring rated LG as the best in colour accuracy, higher than Panasonic and that was eyebrow raising because Panasonic is considered the best for colour accuracy (by Hollywood too), the way they scored the LG the best in colour accuracy and better than Panasonic was running a colourful movie scene and telling the public to judge by eye. Flawed I think, because if you're playing a colourful movie scene and telling the public to score, some guys in the public will invariably be attracted to the most blown up vivid looking colours and rate it the best in accuracy. A blown up bright looking blue doesn't mean it's the more accurate blue.
