<p align=center><i>Don’t miss anything from FlatpanelsHD. Join our fast growing <a href=/newsletter.php><b>Newsletter here</b></a></i><br><i>Also read our review of the <a href= target=_blank><b>Panasonic G10 series plasma here</a></b></i></p>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. </p>

<p>The new 40-inch version of the acclaimed BeoVision 8 TV combines a technologically advanced home cinema viewing experience with the straightforward elegance and ease of use characteristic of this compact TV concept.</p>

<p><b>Optimized performance</b><br>
The new technologies include double frame rate technology, also known as 100Hz, with motion compensation. As a consequence, the picture refresh rate has been doubled compared to conventional LCD TVs, and the inherent blur of LCD technology has thus been reduced significantly. </p>

<p>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.</p>

<p><b>Great sound from small cabinet</b><br>
The sound performance of BeoVision 8 also sets new standards for compact TVs. The down-facing bass speaker 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.</p>

<p>Designer David Lewis explains:<br>
- <i>"What we did was we moved the sound forward and up, designing the TV like a proper stage with an orchestra pit. This ensured the synergy between performance and design expected of Bang & Olufsen."</i></p>

<p><b>Flexible solution</b><br>
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 casually either directly on the floor or on a countertop, and the elegant stands and wall bracket programme will cover customers’ every need.</p>

<p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/beo8-40-3l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/beo8-40-3.jpg" alt="B&O BeoVision 8" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 8</i></p>
<p>Made for those who are looking for an entry-level TV with multiple placement options and fantastic picture and sound performance, BeoVision 8 40-inch offers a radical synthesis of time-honoured craftsmanship, technological innovation and easy operation.</p>
