March 20, 2009 Danish design company Bang & Olufsen has gone mega with its BeoVision 4 HDTV, formerly available in 50 and 65 inch versions, and announced the BeoVision 4-103 – a 103 inch plasma that weighs in at 500 kgs and will sell for GBP 85,000 (USD 123,000) when it hits showrooms in June. The screen is manufactured by Panasonic, but comes with a host of B&O; picture improvement and home theatre technologies, the usual B&O; knock-out styling and functionality, and a motorized stand that can be used to adjust the viewing angle and rotate the display, plus a motorized centre channel speaker which moves up and down so it can be concealed when not in use.

While many people will be quick to point out that its a Panasonic panel, it comes with a host of B&O; picture improvement technologies, such as automatic picture control and an anti-reflection coated contrast screen, the BeoSystem 3 Stage Manager and VisionClear which automatically adjusts brightness and color levels every five days, plus the BeoSound 5 home theater system.

The 1920x1080 pixel 4-103 includes a motorized stand that can be used to adjust the viewing angle and rotate the display, plus a motorized centre channel speaker which moves up and down so it can be concealed when not in use.

BeoVision 4-103 is by nature mainly suited for home cinema viewing owing to its exceptional picture quality and its significant size. However, this TV incorporates a range of picture improvement technologies, such as automatic picture control and an anti-reflection coated contrast screen, which also enhances the viewing experience during daytime viewing.

The new TV is designed to be the cornerstone of the intelligent home.
