LG and Bang & Olufsen unveil their first TV produced in a partnership with this OLED 4K television called the BeoVision Eclipse. With lauded design and acoustics, it was only really a matter of time before B&O ventured into the television market, and they couldn’t have picked a more successful partner to support their decision.
Available in 55 and 65-inch versions. Naturally there’s LG’s pixel dimming control tech on board plus an expanded colour gamut. In terms of audio, there’a an integrated 450 watt 3-channel SoundCentre, stereo performance surpassing most integrated solutions and soundbars on the market. By also integrating internet radio and music streaming services, BeoVision Eclipse becomes a music system in its own right.
The slim glass surface continues beneath the speaker and expands downwards beyond the confines of the screen. There’s a motorized floor stand that makes the TV slide soundlessly across the floor, as if it were floating towards you – just push a button. No matter where you are sitting, the TV can be adjusted to better suit where you are. The speaker itself is physically customizable as well in either aluminum or different colored fabrics, in addition to be expanded to support a multi-channel surround sound system by adding Bang & Olufsen’s BeoLab loudspeakers, with the TV’s speaker acting as the center channel.
In addition to the floor stand, BeoVision Eclipse can be placed on a motorized or manual wall bracket. Everything is controlled with a personalisable single remote, the BeoRemote One BT. As you might expect, the Eclipse also features LG’s most recent webOS 3.5 smart TV platform, so you can stream content to the screen and watch on demand. Chromecast audio, AirPlay audio and Bluetooth are all built-in for music streaming.
With the BeoVision Eclipse offered in 55 and 65-inch sizes, priced at $9,995 USD and $14,995 USD respectively — you can find the TV in all Bang & Olufsen retailers starting early November.
