LG v Sony oled image processing @ CES


Active Member
I read something surprising today - the CES TV shootout (in America so no Panasonic or Philips) compared an LG E7 against a Sony A1, and when it came to displaying relatively poor quality images from streaming, the E7 won.

Streaming performance relies on image-processing technologies like noise reduction that are typically not used on pristine source material. Here, the the LG E7 OLED won again, beating out the Sony A1E

Now I thought the LGs were relatively poor at handling blockiness and artifacts, and the Sony was much much better at handling them. Am I wrong, or is the difference not really worth the noise on the forums?

Anyway, looking forward to the results from the UK shootout later this month.

This year's shootout was a joke: "The Annual TV Shootout at CE Week 2017 is an an annual event that has grown and evolved over the years. Unlike years past, where a “King of TVs” was crowned by an audience vote, 2017 brought changes to the scoring. This year, a panel of judges who work in the AV or film industry voted in three categories: Studio Lighting/Home Theater, HDR, and Streaming Performance"

I think there were four 'expert' judges all of the age they should be enjoying the sun in Florida. I don't believe anyone of the public would have given the Streaming Performance to the LG from what I read (nor the first category). Haven't watched the podcast video related to it to hear their explanations ...
I also read the settings on the A1 were different on day 2, the day of the vote, compared to day 1 o_O.
