Bang & Olufsen, a Danish electronic company, recently unveiled a prototype television that will revolutionize the whole concept of this device as entertainment and media center is combined into one.
The prototype television, dubbed as BeoVision 4, is a 103-inch widescreen television that will feature complete media technologies including impressive audio system, high definition video support and home integration capability.
According to the company, the television uses plasma technology that supports bright and vivid images. Another advantage of this flat panel display is that it can provide large surface with thin diameter. It also has a wider viewing angle compared to LCD panels which has reduced view angle in at least one of its direction.
Bang & Olufsen also said that this television will come with an “intelligent” remote control which provides interactive experience for its users who can easily manage all the features of the media center/entertainment device.
With the introduction of this prototype plasma television, the Danish company has created the widest consumer flat screen television which has also been designed to serve as a full media center for people, allowing them to control other home devices including security system, lights, ventilation, and other commonly used appliances. With this capability, home management will be a lot easier for users.
Another impressive feature is the durable design made possible because of the strong aluminum frame which can protect the internal parts from harsh elements. And since plasma technology can last up to 100,000 hours of actual display, this television can last up to 27 years with its image quality still vivid and bright.
Because BeoVision has been designed to provide home cinema viewing experience, it offers impressive image technologies including anti-reflection coated contrast screen which allows viewers to watch programs even in bright lights and automatic picture control which provides vivid and high definition pictures.
To maximize the viewing experience of users, this television also provides BeoSystem 3 picture and surround sound engine and BeoLab 10 centre loudspeaker for a crisp and clean sound.
