BeoVision 11 has its roots in the BeoVision 10 design that it replaces. Some refinements have been made such as a slimmer frame and new color variants but the expression is the same as in the previous version that many people have come to love over the recent years. It is also still possible to change the speaker fabric.

BeoVision 11 has an aluminum frame in either silver or black. All three variants in 40, 46 and 55 inches also offers flexibility. One of the new mounting solutions is a motorized wall bracket that extends all the way out to 90 degrees. The motorized solution is not only strong it is also virtually silent during operation.

The motorized floor stand still exists and you can naturally control it with one of the B&O remotes. The easel stand from the BeoVision 10 is also available for BeoVision 11 and a non-motorized wall mounting solution also exists.

Improved picture with new video

Bang & Olufsen launched their new video platform with the BeoPlay V1 recently and with BeoVision 11 they have improved it even further so it also handles 3D.

The BeoVision 11 is based on a LCD panel with edge LED backlighting and real 200 Hz. Bang & Olufsen’s powerfull picture engine analyzes incoming pictures on-the-fly and also has a precalibrated Movie profile (for 6500 Kelvin) and a game mode (with minimal input lag).

Another update is the new light sensor that Bang & Olufsen calls 360° Automatic Picture Control. It is a new light sensor concept unique for the Danish electronics manufacturer as it measures ambient light in all directions to optimize the picture qualtiy and image brightness. Today’s light sensors typically only measure on the front so for example a window behind the TV is not considered.

BeoVision 11 is smart

Behind the exclusive design, Bang & Olufsen has made significant updated and changes. Bang & Olufsen calls it their “most inclusive and ambitious television to date”.

One of the additions is a Smart TV platform based on the open Smart TV alliance. From here customers can access for example YouTube and other internet services that will be added in the future. Apple users can also look forward to the Apple TV integration that allows you to mount an Apple TV behind the TV in a dedicated slot. This gives access to for example iTunes rentals and wireless AirPlay.

- ”We want to provide our customers the same premium experience no matter whether they are watching TV, downloading a film, using the internet or trying out the latest video game. BeoVision 11 has been designed to keep up with everyone in the family – and to keep them amazed, with nothing between them and their content – as technology continues to evolve in new directions.” says Tue Mantoni, CEO of Bang & Olufsen.

But it does not stop here. Bang & Olufsen has taken things further and improved the recording concept. A hard drive solution is optional and allows users to record one TV show while watching another or record two different TV shows at the same time.

Other features include DLNA streaming that can stream video, music and pictures from other devices in the home as well as HbbTV in those markets that support the service. Furthermore 6 HDMI inputs are available as well as 2 USB inputs.

BeoVision 11 naturally integrated into the Bang & Olufsen eco system and can be controlled with one of the well-known B&O remotes. A new BeoRemote app for iOS and Android tablets that serves as an intuitive remote solution is also being introduced.

Big sound

Bang & Olufsen has always been famous for their dedication to sound quality and BeoVision 11 offers impressive sound and an even more impressive sound system.

BeoVision 11 incorporates a custom-made ¾” tweeter, 2” midrange, and a hefty 4” bass driver in each of the left- and right-channel speakers. Each of the six speakers is powered by its own dedicated 32 watt ICEpower amplifier, and their enclosure is supported with rubber bushings to wipe out vibrations in the rest of the TV. A powerful new digital signal-processing algorithm pulls it all together, and switches seamlessly between dedicated sound modes when it detects music, sports, drama, movies, etc.

Users can also customize their sound experience from the extensive portfolio of sound options in the menu. If you prefer to keep it easy you can obviously also just let the TV decide for you. The same is true for the picture settings by the way.

BeoVision 11 is available in 40, 46 and 55 inch sizes in Bang & Olufsen’s stores from October 11. You can choose between six front fabric colours, a front frame in silver or black, and rear cabinet in black or white. Prices begin at: EUR 5,995.
