NEW YORK, July 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The highly acclaimed LG E7 OLED 4K Ultra HD TV was crowned "2017 King of TV" in the 14th Annual CE Week TV Shootout™ in a competition amongst six contending flagship 4K Ultra HD TV models during CE Week in New York City. It is the fourth consecutive year LG OLED has won at the CE Week Shootout and the first time a single manufacturer has swept all three newly created categories. The 65-inch class (64.5 inches measured diagonally) LG E7 OLED 4K Ultra HD TV combines a unique Picture-on-Glass form factor, the unparalleled picture performance of OLED technology, immersive Dolby Atmos sound and unmatched high dynamic range (HDR) capabilities to deliver outstanding picture quality and an unrivaled home cinema experience.
"The honor of being awarded the overall top performer at the CE Week TV Shootout for the 4th consecutive year underscores LG's commitment to delivering the absolute best TV technology in the industry, period," said Tim Alessi, Senior Director, Product Marketing for home entertainment at LG Electronics USA. "Our 2017 OLED TVs are the ultimate expression of a cinema-quality experience in the home, being the first TVs in the market to offer stunning image reproduction and add Dolby Atmos sound quality to complete the home theater experience."
The CE Week TV Shootout is an annual event that pits the flagship TVs from leading manufacturers against each other to identify the top performers. In 2017 the event has been refined to award the top performers in three distinct categories: Studio Lighting/Home Theater, HDR, and Streaming Performance. Judges rate each TV based on several criteria including, perceived contrast ratio, color saturation and color volume, colorimetry, and motion artifacts, amongst others. To ensure an equal playing field for all manufactures every TV in the shootout was purchased at retail, calibrated independently by TV Shootout organizers Joel Silver (founder of ISF) and Kevin Miller; and evaluated by experts in the field of video imaging.
