PRODUCT REVIEW: Bang & Olufsen teams up with LG on this stunning OLED television

H/T The Verge

LG and Bang & Olufsen have revealed their new OLED television called the BeoVision Eclipse, their first TV produced in a partnership announced last year. The BeoVision is a 4K TV and 450 watt music system that features a 3-channel sound bar with integrated internet radio and music streaming. The TV claims to deliver “absolute black and infinite contrast ratio” and high dynamic range (HDR) as you’d expect from LG’s much lauded OLED panels. It also features a motorized floor stand that can move the TV around the room soundlessly at the press of a button — making the TV adjustable to your position if you’re fidgety or move around a lot. The Eclipse can also be mounted on a motorized or manual wall bracket, and controlled with the BeoRemote One BT remote.

Adaptability is one of the major selling points of the Eclipse. It comes with LG’s webOS 3.5, enabling users to access and customize streaming services like Netflix, YouTube, Deezer, and features built-in support for Spotify Connect, Chromecast, and AirPlay audio as well as simple Bluetooth streaming. The speaker itself is physically customizable, with choices of aluminum or different colored fabrics. It can also be expanded to support a multi-channel surround sound system by adding Bang & Olufsen’s BeoLab loudspeakers, with the TV’s speaker then acting as the center channel.

The BeoVision Eclipse comes in 55- and 65-inch sizes, and will cost $10,990, and $15,990 respectively. They’ll be on sale in Bang & Olufsen retailers starting in September.
