Bang and Olufsen BeoVision 12-65
B&O presents 65" BeoVision 12-65 plasma-TV

11 Jan 2012 | Rasmus Larsen |

With the launch of BeoVision 12-65 – a new ultra flat 3D 65-inch plasma solution with integrated centre channel and 7.1 surround sound – Bang & Olufsen aims to set new standards for the cinematic experience.

BeoVision 12-65

Designed by David Lewis Designers, BeoVision 12-65 offers a completely new design expression, which has a very thin and light appearance. Besides using an ultra slim NeoPDP panel with the latest in plasma technology, two aluminium profiles bent inward in a V-shape – one in black and one in natural high-gloss polished aluminium - create an optical illusion giving the TV a thin, light and elegant visual expression.

The actual frame is a very thin black aluminium sheet of only a few millimeters thickness that gives an impression of one uninterrupted glass surface with no visible joints.

Dedicated centre sound is integrated

The integrated centre speaker is placed below the screen and consists of five custom made speaker units covered by a soft curved natural anodised aluminium grill with an intricate organic shaped hole pattern. Attention to detail is a must in this TV concept. Even the hole-pattern in front of the speaker units is made according to certain acoustic specifications.

The centre channel performance of the integrated loudspeaker matches the powerful BeoLab 5 loudspeakers in a surround sound setup. By means of sophisticated Digital Signal Processing, our acoustic engineers have lifted up the centre channel so you will experience that speech is coming out from somewhere mid screen, not below the TV. This gives you a more natural sound experience when e.g. watching news or broadcasts with a lot of speech.

Since the amount of space is limited in this speaker design, highly sophisticated and powerful amplifiers are needed. Bang & Olufsen’s ICEpower technology is used for the BeoVision 12 speaker design. It contains 4 x 80 watt ICEpower amplifiers for the midrange and 1 x 40 watts for the treble.

The sophisticated video engine, handling all sound processing and picture technologies, includes as standard a full 7.1 surround sound module, which allows you to connect a vast number of speakers, almost any sound configuration you may want is possible.

Plasma technology

The TV comes with the latest in plasma technology offering a great experience in both 2D and 3D. The panel is a so-called NeoPDP panel, which includes new phosphors with a very short retention time giving improved 3D performance and a much better motion performance in a 2D viewing situation.

BeoVision 12-65 also comes with Automatic Colour Management to compensate for the effects of ageing that is common for the plasma technology. For BeoVision 12-65, the robotic arm featuring a camera is located underneath the screen, hidden behind the loudspeaker grill.

The entire TV is offered in one placement alternative only, directly on the wall. The design of the wall bracket is quite unique as it is partly integrated in the rear cabinet, which means it hardly adds to the thickness of the TV at all.

BeoVision 12-65 is sold exclusively through authorised Bang & Olufsen dealers. BeoVision 12-65 will begin to arrive in showrooms March 2012.
