Bang & Olufsen, a global provider of high quality, custom made audio and video products, proudly launches its first Smart TV, BeoVision 11, will arrive in Bang & Olufsen US showrooms this month. BeoVision 11 sets new standards in the marketplace with its rich sound, design perfection, full connectivity and best-in-class video experience. It features an all-in-one entertainment and information hub for the entire family. With BeoVision 11, Bang & Olufsen has created a signature balance of form, function and technology that will keep everyone in the digital household enthralled for years to come.
Bang & Olufsen has engineered a high-quality sonic experience that features six speakers into BeoVision 11's slim interior, and powers each of them with its own dedicated 32 watt ICEpower amplifier. BeoVision 11 offers a full digital surround sound decoder module that delivers up to 12 audio channels using Bang & Olufsen's TrueImage™ processor. True Image technology dynamically handles up-and down-mixing of audio signals to match the number of audio channels in the incoming signal with the available loudspeakers, yielding an audio performance that is unparalleled by any other television.
At the heart of BeoVision 11 is an all-new video engine that drives the 240Hz LED-based LCD screen, with glare polarizer, in either 2D or 3D. The two-sided LED backlight features 1.5 D local dimming to significantly improve contrast in 2D viewing. Digital noise and motion blur are radically reduced to reveal a stunningly natural picture, even in the most demanding of circumstances.BeoVision 11 is the first television to feature a Bang & Olufsen Smart TV, a new platform that lets you switch easily between television channels and the internet. There is also a Picture and Picture function where the viewer can watch both at the same time. Just connect your set to the internet, wirelessly or wired, and start enjoying web-based content on the big screen in seconds. Choose between popular apps such as YouTube and Facebook, or surf wherever else you want to go. Page navigation can be handled with the dedicated remote by Bang & Olufsen, or you can use your iPad or Android tablet – and the BeoRemote app – to take advantage of QWERTY keyboards.
Convenient control is an important part of the BeoVision 11 experience. Both of Bang & Olufsen's remotes, Beo4 and Beo6, provide simple and intuitive control of all TV functions – as well as any other connected device – and even home automation for the truly connected.
BeoVision 11 is a DLNA TV, which makes it simple to stream music from a smart phone and to watch a film stored on a NAS drive. In addition it provides connectivity to just about anything you want to throw at it through Wireless Network 2.4 or 5 GHz. Other connections include an Ethernet connection for software updates, two USB ports, three control outlets for control of up to six connected devices, and six HDMI sockets.BeoVision 11 is available in 40", 46" and 55". On sale exclusively at Bang & Olufsen stores this October 2012. Prices begin at: USD $5,995.
