Bang & Olufsen 40-inch BeoVision 8

Bang & Olufsen has recently introduced a new 40-inch model in their BeoVision 8 series LCD TV which looks extremely stylish. The LCD TV is capable of Full HD (1920×1080) and boasts 6ms response time, 100Hz refresh rate, 500cd/m2 brightness and 3000:1 contrast ratio. There is no word on the pricing, but you can expect it to be fairly expensive.

With its attractive price point, the BeoVision 8 TV now also comes in a 40-inch version that offers a Full High Definition experience based on a glare LCD screen with a range of exciting new picture improvement technologies.

Optimized performance
Incorporating new technologies including double frame rate technology, also known as 100Hz, with motion compensation, the results is the inherent blur of LCD technology being reduced significantly.

BeoVision 8 40-inch also includes contrast improvement technology – known as 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.

Great sound from small cabinet
The BeoVision 8 comes with down-facing bass speaker that provides a firm foundation for movies and music programmes, while the front units are tuned specifically for the reproduction of human speech. The overall sound is extremely natural and clearly audible, giving the feeling of voices coming directly out of the screen.

Flexible solution
The BeoVision 8 offers maximum flexibility as the compact television can easily be moved around and placed high or low; the retractable feet support BeoVision 8 casually either directly on the floor or on a countertop, and the elegant stands and wall bracket programme will cover customers’ every need.
