The Panasonic will get brigher than the other ones and because of that everybody will know which is the Panasonic. Of course the LCD will get brighter but everybody also will know which is the LCD. With two TVs left the Sony OLED will do better with low quality sources than the LG OLED. Blindtest...really?

The Samsung is probably the only one that will stand out (LCD), the rest all share the same panel from LG. I haven't seen a GZ2000 in person so I won't know which is which.

The GZ2000 is a unfinished panel that is why Panasonic could make it brighter than the other ones...which they have done. Also Sony will do low quality sources best. Not shure why you think that people who attend are not capable seeing differences which are obvious to see. It is a for the most part informed audience which will have not much difficulty picking out which TV is from what manufacturer.

Samsung Q90 is all the way to the left, screen "A"... it's more that obvious because it's the only screen with no room reflections. The photo demonstrates how advantageous that is for black levels when there is ambient light in the room (obviously turn down the lights and that advantage evaporates).

So what's left is the 3 OLEDs, which is an interesting comparison to do blind, no question!

This is how the American shootout should have been done - Blind test.
We didn't do a blind test because we wanted to show Dark room and Bright room, HDR and DV picture modes. You physically need to use the remote to make the change from Dark to Bright for example and the menu's would have given away the set's identity. Also when you switch to HDR and or DV some sets have a logo displayed which can also give away the identity of the set.

Tyler, how are they getting around this problem? Just one PM?

In UK, they hide the tv behind curtain when making changes to video source.

In photos and videos OLED always seem to me to have a slight blue cast when put side by side with an LCD. This blue is not there when seen live or if there is no LCD to compare it with. Depends on the camera used I guess. In any case this indicates to me the tv on the left is the Samsung.

My guess is they did a perceptual match which would virtually eliminate that problem.

Wow! LG won. Congrats! Maybe time for me to get back the E9 that I returned in anticipation of GZ2000. Cheaper too.

You'd think between winning those two categories, you'd also have a win for best TV overall? Did gaming push the C9 over the top?

I'll wait and read all about it...
