Bang & Olufsen has unveiled its most advanced television to date — the Beovision Harmony 88-inch TV, which is the world’s first 88-inch 8K OLED TV and largest OLED screen ever created by LG Electronics. Beovision Harmony was originally unveiled at Milan Design week in 2019 as a meaningful combination of art and technology, where the TV folds down into a sculptural shape when not in use. The two oak and aluminum covers partially obscures the black screen, and when the TV is turned on, the panels fan out like a butterfly opening its wings, and the screen rises above them to the perfect viewing height.
The two-meter-wide Beovision Harmony TV comes with the 2020 OLED 8K display from LG Electronics optimized for Bang & Olufsen, which allows for the full Bang & Olufsen cinematic experience. With an 8K resolution, delivering four times more detail than 4K TV and 16 times more than HDTV, it is designed to deliver stunning picture quality, upgraded performance and artificial intelligence-enabled features that brings movies and sports to life like never before imagined.
At the heart of the TV are several advanced core technologies, most notably the new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI Processor. This advanced processor leverages upgraded processing power and artificial intelligence deep learning algorithms to improve on the picture quality and enable a host of specialized features for various types of content.
As for the sound, along with the pre-installed three-channel sound system and built-in dual subwoofer, the TV is compatible with Bang & Olufsen’s speaker program, allowing one to connect up to eight wireless Beolab speakers for true 7.1 surround sound. All sources can be controlled with the Beoremote One, a remote crafted from a single piece of extruded aluminium that adds well to the luxury experience.
Along with the existing speaker cover choice of oak wood and natural aluminum, two more options have recently been added to the Beovision Harmony. Warm brass-tone aluminum has been combined with smoked oak and bronze-tone aluminum with walnut. The new finishes will be matching the Beolab 50 and Beolab 90 finish options, creating a visual coherence between the products when included in a complete home cinema experience. Finally, a full customization of finish on Beovision Harmony, Beolab 50 and Beolab 90 is available for clients who wish to own something totally unique.
Beovision Harmony including the LG 8K 88-inch OLED ZX TV optimized for Bang & Olufsen is priced at $49,000 USD and will be available in Bang & Olufsen stores from the end of June 2020.
