The television is the focal point of any living room. It's both where we watch the world, and escape from the world. It's a window through which we view unfolding global news… and it's a portal that takes us into dramas, comedies, tragedies and fantasies that can inspire or entertain us. And yet... no matter how demanding we are when it comes to what we watch, it's surprising how often we fail to bring those same demands to the technology that delivers it.
A television should be more. It should combine form and function, design and technology, beauty and performance. And in the Bang & Olufsen BeoVision Horizon, all of these come together in one perfectly executed package. Here are seven reasons why it pays to invest in the best.
The days of designing your room around the TV are over. The BeoVision Horizon is created to fit around your tastes, not dictate them. Place it on the wall, lean it back on the floor using the easel stand, employ the traditional floor stand… or embrace your flexible side with a wheel stand and enjoy total mobility to watch what you want where you want.
Evolution built in
Powered by the evolving Android TV platform and integrated Google Cast technology, the Horizon is not only a television that embraces today's cutting edge, but will continue to do so in the future. Google Play gives you fast and easy access to online content, or share movies, music and media from your tablet or smartphone… and expect greater functionality and entertainment options as the integrated software within the Horizon evolves with the technology itself.
It's all about the picture
Televisions live or die by the quality of the picture, and the Horizon comes with dedicated picture modes fine-tuned to enhance your viewing. A tiny light sensor automatically measures the lighting condition in the room, and adjusts the output of the screen accordingly. The result is a mimicking of the way our own optic nerves work, meaning the most natural, realistic, and easy-on-the-eye picture possible.
Exceptional sound quality
Bang & Olufsen have a rich and hard-earned reputation for delivering superior sound – and they've brought all that heritage to bear on the Horizon. Two custom-built 2.5 inch drivers are powered by a pair of 30 watt amplifiers dedicated to bringing as much power and finesse to your listening experience as possible. It also means that the audio complements the video: whether you're watching the news, immersing yourself in a film or playing Call of Duty, the sound is tailored to your viewing.
A new kind of remote
The days of pointing your remote are over. Bluetooth technology means using the remote control really is as simple as pressing a button. In addition, that single BeoRemote not only operates your TV, but all other sources – such as set top box, DVD player, games console – meaning less clutter… and less looking for the right stick when you need it.
Design that works with your surroundings
The minimalist concept of the Horizon is designed to blend in and complement its surroundings, rather than dominate the room. A sleek, dark aluminium frame stripped of all but the essentials gives it an understated solidity – and leant it the nickname of The Mirror: when turned on it's impossible to look away from, when switched off it's almost unnoticeable.
Built-in Wireless Power Link technology means your TV becomes more than just a TV. Connect your Horizon wirelessly to your other Bang & Olufsen Multiroom products and send your TV sound to speakers in any other room in your home… or use the TV speakers to listen to music from another source. And all at the touch of a button.
