Bang & Olufsen has recently launched its first 4K UHD TV, the 55-inch BeoVision Avant has an ultra high definition LED panel and an impressive specification and feature list, but it’s unique design aspect is that the TV can rotate or move to suit optimum viewing positions.
B&O has produced moving televisions in the past, but never with such a large screen size. When on the optional floor stand, the TV twists left and right, but also rotates on the circular stand in order to give the rear of the set enough space to manoeuvre. When required, the TV can point in the correct direction to the person or persons watching, and when not in use it can revert to a more anonymous position.
The new Bang & Olufsen 4K UHD features a moving soundbar that hides when not in use but lowers when the set is on. It contains eight speakers, each with its own amplifier to create three channels of sound – left, right and centre.
The BeoVision Avant 4K UHD also adds a new Chomatic Room Adaptation feature that analyses ambient light and adjusts the on-screen picture to suit. This use two separate sensors and anti-reflection coatings on both sides of the screen dampen reflections by up to 98 per cent, says the company.
The new Tv comes with a price tag of approximately US$ 8,000
