According to CEO, Tue Mantoni, BeoVision 11 was conceived to provide the
entire family with a comprehensive array of up-to-date digital entertainment
of the highest caliber – without compromising the timeless aesthetics,
intuitive controls and high-quality sound that Bang & Olufsen is famous for.
"We want to provide our customers the same premium experience no matter
whether they are watching TV, downloading a film, using the internet or trying
out the latest video game. BeoVision 11 has been designed to keep up with
everyone in the family – and to keep them amazed, with nothing between them
and their content – as technology continues to evolve in new directions."

Outstanding sound and arresting picture quality

Bang & Olufsen has engineered a high-quality sonic experience that features
six speakers into BeoVision 11's slim interior, and powers each of them with
its own dedicated 32 watt ICEpower amplifier. Their enclosure is supported
with rubber bushings to wipe out vibrations in the rest of the TV. A powerful
new digital signal-processing algorithm pulls it all together, and switches
seamlessly between dedicated sound modes when it detects music, sports, drama,
movies, etc. The result is an impressive, clear sound experience – uncommonly
produced from a flat-screen television. BeoVision 11 offers a full digital
surround sound decoder module that delivers up to 12 audio channels using Bang
& Olufsen's TrueImage™ processor. True Image™ technology dynamically handles
up-and down-mixing of audio signals to match the number of audio channels in
the incoming signal with the available loudspeakers, yielding an audio
performance that is unparalleled by any other television.

At the heart of BeoVision 11 is an all-new video engine that drives the 240Hz
LED-based LCD screen, with glare polarizer, in either 2D or 3D. The two-sided
LED backlight features 1.5 D local dimming to significantly improve contrast
in 2D viewing. Digital noise and motion blur are radically reduced to reveal a
stunningly natural picture, even in the most demanding of circumstances.

Bang & Olufsen is introducing a number of other exciting image improvement
features with BeoVision 11:

  o360 degreeAutomatic Picture Control: Senses ambient light not only in
    front of the screen, but also behind it and to both sides, to continuously
    adjust brightness and contrast for optimal viewing comfort.
  oAdaptive Contrast: Reveals unprecedented detail in very dark scenes even
    when bright sunlight floods the screen.
  oDedicated picture modes for film and gaming: In addition to the default
    adaptive picture mode, these new modes provide gamers with lightning-fast
    responsiveness and film lovers with white balance just like the director
    set it.

Easy access to content and convenient control

BeoVision 11 is the first television to feature a Bang & Olufsen Smart TV, a
new platform that lets you switch easily between television channels and the
internet. There is also a Picture and Picture function where the viewer can
watch both at the same time.

Just connect your set to the internet, wirelessly or wired, and start enjoying
web-based content on the big screen in seconds. Choose between popular apps
such as YouTube and Facebook, or surf wherever else you want to go. You can
even save bookmarks. Page navigation can be handled with the dedicated remote
by Bang & Olufsen, or you can use your iPad or Android tablet – and the
BeoRemote app – to take advantage of QWERTY keyboards.

Convenient control is an important part of the BeoVision 11 experience. Both
of Bang & Olufsen's remotes, Beo4 and Beo6, provide simple and intuitive
control of all TV functions – as well as any other connected device – and even
home automation for the truly connected.

BeoVision 11 is a DLNA TV, which makes it simple to stream music from a smart
phone and to watch a film stored on a NAS drive. In addition it provides
connectivity to just about anything you want to throw at it through Wireless
Network 2.4 or 5 GHz. Other connections include an Ethernet connection for
software updates, two USB ports, three control outlets for control of up to
six connected devices, and six HDMI sockets. Additionally, Apple aficionados
will appreciate the dedicated space inside the cabinet for Apple TV.

Flexible decorating options – and content for all

BeoVision 11 provides a strong, elegant interior design statement and offers a
wealth of color choices to match almost any decor. You can choose between six
front fabric colors, (blue, black, white, silver, red, and dark gray), a front
frame in silver or black, and rear cabinet in black or white.

It has four stand options and is easy to place the Bang & Olufsen Smart TV
where it best fits into the family's home and lifestyle. Nothing beats the
everyday luxury of the motorized floor stand or the new motorized wall
bracket: just grab the remote to turn the TV out from the wall in any angle up
to 90 degrees and turn it back – and out of the way – when you are done. A
wall bracket with manual turn and an easel stand are also available.

BeoVision 11 is available in 40", 46" and 55". On sale exclusively at Bang &
Olufsen stores this October 2012. Prices begin at: USD $5,995.

Bang & Olufsen was founded in Struer, Denmark, in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend
Olufsen, two innovative, young engineers devoted to high quality audio
reproduction. Since then, the brand has become an icon of performance and
design excellence through its long-standing craftsmanship tradition and the
strongest possible commitment to high-tech research and development.

Still at the forefront of domestic technology, Bang & Olufsen has extended its
comprehensive experience with integrated audio and video solutions for the
home to other areas such as the hospitality and automotive industries in
recent years. Consequently, its current product range epitomizes seamless
media experiences in the home as well as in the car and on the move.
