BeoVision 7 combines state-of-the-art technology with beautiful design
to produce an incredible entertainment system. It provides the perfect
balance between sound and picture performance, with its VisionClear package
of High Definition picture technologies, acoustic clarity of the voice
track and strong sound reproduction. The digital sound module supports
surround sound in 7.1 channels and the connection of BeoLab loudspeakers,
including the BeoLab 7-2 and BeoLab 7-4 for the center channel.
"We are very excited for the arrival of BeoVision 7 as it is truly an
unparalleled LCD television and home entertainment unit that exhibits
renowned Bang & Olufsen design and technology," said Kim Gravesen,
President of Bang & Olufsen America. "This product is a great
representation of our home theater capabilities and our constant drive to
ensure the ultimate user experience. We believe BeoVision 7 will resonate
well with customers because of its sleek form, superior performance, and
advanced picture qualities."
A complete entertainment system
BeoVision 7 is based on a global digital platform. With highly advanced
signal processing that provides corresponding improvement in the picture
quality, as well as supporting full High Definition, BeoVision 7 delivers a
superb picture, and even access to its own built-in DVD player for an
exceptional cinema experience in the comforts of home.
BeoVision 7 offers users two impressive center channel sound solutions
for maximum customization. The vertical BeoLab 7-4 loudspeaker provides
incredible precision and acoustic clarity of the voice track of a film or
television program. Utilizing the patented Acoustic Lens Technology, BeoLab
7-4 ensures a perfect sound dispersion from the treble at an even 180
degrees throughout the room. Alternatively, the horizontal BeoLab 7-2
stereo loudspeaker makes for the ultimate stereo television experience.
The best possible picture -- and the best of everything else
Bang & Olufsen's skills with the VisionClear package of picture
technologies ensure the best possible picture from the LCD monitor in all
situations. VisionClear represents a collection of Bang & Olufsen
technologies applied to create an optimal picture performance. These
technologies include daylight adaptation with an anti-reflective contrast
screen for pleasurable viewing even in strong light; more natural movements
are created with an adaptive motion compensation algorithm; dynamic noise
reduction monitors source signals and dull pictures; and automatic picture
control sensors ensure a richer screen experience. When BeoVision 7 is
switched on, the TV automatically adjusts the picture quality to match the
current light conditions -- and continues to do so until the television is
A sense of magic
BeoVision 7 incorporates all of Bang & Olufsen's core competences,
including the element of humanization through the mechanical movements of
the products. When switched on, the electronic curtains glide aside, and
when activated, the DVD loader swings out from below the screen in a
silent, smooth movement. It embraces the DVD with a prismatic lighting
effect, which also illuminates the text on the disc.
Additionally, BeoVision 7 features a motorized floor stand and wall
bracket, giving complete freedom to tilt and turn the screen from one's
viewing position with a simple touch on the remote control. BeoVision 7 can
be set to turn automatically to the viewing position when switched on, and
to return to a resting position when switched off.
Even reading informational text offers a surprising and pleasant user
experience. The vertical display text provides instant recognition of the
TVs operational status, volume, and the entertainment source, and is placed
to the right of the widescreen so as not to break the design lines.
Flexible placement and integration
BeoVision 7 has many placement options, including a table stand, floor
stand, or wall bracket. In addition to the natural aluminum finish,
BeoVision 7 is available in black, dark grey, red and blue.
BeoVision 7 can be setup as part of Bang & Olufsen's BeoLink home
integration system, based on the principle of 'move the experience -- not
the equipment,' with everything controlled by Beo4.
BeoVision 7 will arrive in all North American showrooms this summer
2007. Expected MSRP $13,250 USD, including the BeoLab 7-2 or BeoLab 7-4
center channel loudspeaker. Stand options range from $500 to $1000 and
include rotating floorstand, tablestand, and/or wall bracket.
