Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 4-85 3D Full HD Plasma TV

Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 4-85 3D Full HD Plasma TV

Bang & Olufsen (B&O) adds to its BeoVision 4 line the 85-inch model that is the company’s first TV with 3D. The BeoVision 4-85 features 1920×1080 Full HD resolution, 30,000:1 typical contrast ratio, 5,000,000:1 max contrast rate, 160cd/m2 brightness. It includes VisionClear picture optimization technology and automatic calibration.

The BeoVision 4-85 comes with dedicated BeoLab 10 center loudspeaker with Acoustic Lens Technology. It is offered with a unique stand that elevates the screen at the touch of a button. In order to view 3D images, active shutter glasses are needed.

Spectacular sound

With the dedicated centre loudspeaker BeoLab 10 utilising Acoustic Lens Technology, BeoVision 4-85 has an unmatched sound performance to accompany the high quality picture performance.

“BeoLab 10 is capable of handling the centre channel perfectly even when combined with our most powerful loudspeaker, BeoLab 5. With the patented Acoustic Lens Technology, sound from the centre channel is spread equally in the horizontal plane, allowing you to get all the nuances from e.g. film dialogue, regardless of where you sit in the room,” says Jens Rahbek, Acoustic Engineer at Bang & Olufsen.

 

Elegant giant

The new 85-inch member of the BeoVision 4 family is offered with a unique stand that elevates the screen at the touch of a button. When the TV is turned on, the screen will elegantly elevate itself to the optimal viewing position, and the seamlessly integrated BeoLab 10 centre loudspeaker will emerge underneath the screen. At the same time, the screen will turn and tilt according to the user’s preferences. When switched off again, the impressive screen moves down towards the floor in a powerful, sturdy fashion and is parked only inches above the floor, making it look less prominent in the room when not in use.

“Placed on a motorized stand, BeoVision 4 represents a whole new and unique approach to the placement of a giant flat screen TV,” says Product Manager Ole Moltsen. “Bang & Olufsen is among the few companies that are able to deliver a TV screen that size, and we are the only ones who can offer a stand that will actually lift the screen off the floor, and then turn and tilt it to your preferred viewing position.”

BeoVision 4-85 is also available as a screen-only solution, where the screen is mounted on a wall bracket as known from other BeoVision 4 family members.

The size of the carefully crafted 85” screen with its high-grade aluminium frame is impressive, but it becomes even more impressive when the screen starts to move. The movements of the screen and speaker are accelerated and decelerated in the process to underline the muscular progress, and the initial lift of the screen is timed with the start up time of the BeoSystem 3 picture and surround sound engine. The hallmark electronic curtains are then pulled aside while the BeoLab 10 centre loudspeaker is moving forward into position.

Centre of intelligent home

This new TV concept is the cornerstone in the intelligent home as it is a fantastic hub for combining audio and video experiences with other home automation systems. To many customers home automation is becoming more and more interesting, and due to increasingly sophisticated interfaces, Bang & Olufsen customers can actually control and operate all their A/V and home automation equipment from the programmable Beo6 remote control all over the house. Control of light settings plus access to security systems, ventilation, curtains, pool cover, burglar alarm etc. are only some of the countless possibilities.

Due to the extensive flexibility of BeoVision 4-85, its built-in competencies and high-end performance, the customer gets a unique Bang & Olufsen solution that can be customized according to individual preferences by the professional Bang & Olufsen retail organization and carefully selected specialist partners.
