Bang & Olufsen BeoVision AVANT 4K Ultra HD TV

Bang & Olufsen has just released its top-of-the line 55-inch Ultra HD 4K TV, called BeoVision Avant, priced at $8000. The flagship entertainment center was created to have the muscle and finesse to deliver breath-taking audio and video performance, while also blending seamlessly into the living room.  The LED backlit TV boasts 8 million pixels with local dimming, while integrating a 3-channel speaker system comprised of three dedicated tweeters, three midrange units and two powerful bass drivers.

According to CEO Tue Mantoni, BeoVision Avant was created to provide discerning homeowners the ultimate in authentic performance, intuitive simplicity and convenience.  “Our research shows that consumers want more and more from their televisions,” he explains. “People are pressed for time, and they want entertainment that just works so they can focus on it – and each other – rather than the technology itself. BeoVision Avant delivers on all counts. The name Avant is a nod to our most successful TV to date, the Avant launched in 1995. Just as the first Avant was a game changer in an analogue era, we believe the new BeoVision Avant will set the standard for what should be expected from a television in the future”.

Magical mechanics and convenience
BeoVision Avant introduces a number of innovations that build new bridges between electronics and magical movement. Designers created a discrete but powerful sound panel that unfolds when the television is on, then retreats inside when one turns it off. The sound panel’s movements are coordinated with those of the new stands so the television is ready for viewing and listening in one choreographed flow.

The concept vision was to create a TV which stays in the background of the living room when turned off and wakes up to action and takes center stage when turned on. Rather than arranging your room around the television, the new stands turn the television toward you when you want to use it – then back in place when you have finished viewing.

Spectacularly authentic sound 
BeoVision Avant sounds extraordinary right out of the box, but be prepared to discover just how good a television can sound with no fewer than eight driver units and eight dedicated amplifiers built in.

The sound panel magically glides from the television when it is turned on and performs brilliantly on its own. If one wants to connect external speakers to create a true surround sound experience – either wirelessly or wired – it could not be simpler with the integrated 7.1 surround sound module.

Video performance
A new Chromatic Room Adaptation feature analyzes ambient light from two sensors, and adjusts the screen to compensate for the room’s colour tones. High-grade anti-reflection coatings on both sides of the screen dampen reflections by 98%.
