Bang & Olufsen, the Danish provider of high-end audio and video products, announces the arrival of the BeoVision 8 40-inch LCD in North America. A bit smaller and less expensive than the BeoVision 10, this 40-inch LCD TV comes with 240Hz motion processing, that apparently gives out double the picture refresh rate as compared to regular LCD TV.
BeoVision 8 40-inch also includes contrast improvement technology – so-called Dynamic Contrast – which optimizes the contrast according to the picture content in each scene. In addition, both BeoLink home integration functionality and extra video connections can be included with a convenient plug-and-play module.
The compact BeoVision 8 cabinet is filled to capacity with an advanced amplifier and no less than five speaker units to get that clear and authoritative Bang & Olufsen sound. The dedicated bass provides a firm foundation for movies and music, while the front units deliver incredibly natural human speech.
BeoVision 8 from Bang & Olufsen offers maximum flexibility as this compact television can easily be moved around and placed high or low. The retractable feet support BeoVision 8 in a casual setup – either directly on the floor or on a countertop. The elegant stands and wall bracket solutions allow for further placement options according to each customer’s preference.
BeoVision 8 will be available in all Bang & Olufsen retail locations by summer 2010 and includes the Bang & Olufsen three-year international warranty. Unlike the earlier claim, of around $3,500, the cost is now speculated at $5,400.
