It all moves when powered on
When you’re not watching a movie or TV show on your Bang & Olufsen Beovision Harmony TV, it just sits to the side, with two panels crafted from oak and aluminium partially masking the screen. At a glance, it might even look like a piece of cool Art Deco furniture.
Switch on, and something magical and unexpected happens. The screen itself rises upwards slightly, while the two panels both rotate outwards at 90 degrees, coming together to form a bar at the base. It’s at this point you realise that the panels are housing the speakers.
This is a brilliant piece of design, definitely unusual, and yet also practical, filling the space with sound. Turn the TV off, and the moving parts come together in reverse.
There’s also a lot more technical trickery happening beneath the surface. Housed within is a three-channel, fully active DSP-based sound centre, which when paired with the OLED screen gives an amazing home cinema experience – brighter, self-illuminating pixels, with stunning colour and brilliant sound. The TV can even stream music from your smartphone or Bluetooth device, with LG’s webOS 4.5 platform helping you to access Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and other services.
The built-in 7.1 surround sound decoder makes it easy to add additional Bang & Olufsen speakers. You also get a Beoremote One controller, made from a single piece of extruded aluminium.
Choose a 65in or 77in screen, with a combined grey melange two-tone fabric/aluminium front panel option instead of oak wood/aluminium if you prefer. Also choose a floor stand or a wall bracket. Prices range from AED61,415 up to AED84,775.
