BeoVision 12
B&O kills two BeoVision TVs ahead of big launch

Bang & Olufsen will launch a major new product this Thursday, May 8. Ahead of the launch event, B&O has decided to discontinue two TVs; the BeoVision 12 plasma TV and the 32” BeoPlay V1, according to

B&O kills BV12 and BeoPlay V1-32

BeoVision 12 is Bang & Olufsen’s high-end TV. It is a 65-inch plasma TV, but after Panasonic decided to pull the plug on plasma TV, B&O is left without a panel supplier. This also means that Bang & Olufsen has sold its last plasma TV.

The inexpensive Beoplay V1 will remain available on the market as a 40-inch version, but the smaller 32-inch version called BeoPlay V1-32 will be discontinued. Bang & Olufsen explains that demand for small-size TVs has dropped dramatically and 40-inch TVs are standard in secondary rooms today.

Bang & Olufsen also recently discontinued the BeoVision 10, 7 and 4 TVs. Lastly, B&O will discontinue the Playmaker streaming box for music streaming. The small device will be replaced by the new Essence, which can do the same and much more.

New products on May 8

Bang & Olufsen has sent out invitations to members of the press for a major launch event on Thursday, May 8. They tell us to expect "A Moving Revelation".

With the decision to discontinue several TVs in the past few months it surely seems like Bang & Olufsen is about to launch a new BeoVision TV. We will know more in a few days and you can read all about it here on FlatpanelsHD.
