Bang & Olufsen Has Unveiled Its Latest TV, Beovision Horizon
Bang & Olufsen has unveiled its new BeoVision Horizon television at IFA 2016. This isn’t the company’s first 4K UHD TV, but the goal here does not seem to be offering the greatest possible tech — if it was, the Horizon would feature support for HDR. Instead, the main goal of this particular television is to offer flexibility. Instead of dominating the room the way many TVs do, the new BeoVision Horizon aims to fit in.
Bang & Olufsen BeoVision Horizon Television Design:
Take its design, for instance. With its powder-finished dark grey aluminium chassis and the striking metallic strips across its large speakers. It delivers an industrial look unlike any other TV. In typical Bang & Olufsen style it can also be mounted on a choice of stands or wall mounts, whether you choose the 48-inch or 40-inch screen size.
Bang & Olufsen BeoVision Horizon Television Features:
The TV has a built-in sensor which measures lighting conditions to adjust screen accordingly. This results in clear images and a natural viewing experience that’s very easy on the eyes. Even though it provide powerful sound on its own. It’s equipped with Immaculate Wireless Sound which enables users to add an extra speakers without having to manage cables.
The company has taken the simple but effective tactic to the remote as well. This Horizon’s remote uses Bluetooth in addition to IR, meaning there is no need to point it at the TV in order for it to work. The stark design also makes its mark here as well, with the remote crafted out of a single piece of aluminum.
Each model is equipped with a total of four HDMI 2.0 inputs, all of which support HDCP 2.2, enabling 4K sources like UHD Blu-ray players to be connected. Both the HEVC and VP9 codecs are included, enabling for 4K content to be streamed from YouTube, Netflix, and more.
Bang & Olufsen BeoVision Horizon Television Price:
The 48-inch model retails for $5,500, with the 40-incher selling for $4,000.
