Bang & Olufsen get connected with their newly-revealed BeoVision 11 Smart TV set.
The 1080p screens come in 40, 46 and 55-inch sizes, offering connected telly smarts such as a full web browser (navigated via the remote, iPad or Android tablet), apps like Facebook and Twitter and streamed video content from sources such as YouTube. DLNA media streaming also lets you get music, photos or videos stored on a remote PC to the TV wirelessly, while the premium brand scratches Apple's equally-premium back by offering a slot to slide an Apple TV inside on the screen's rear.
Connections include two USB ports, a generous six HDMI ports and an Ethernet connection.Calling it their "most ambitious TV to date", the BeoVision 11 has an unusual square-shaped design, which allows it to house six separate speakers in a row across its bottom edge. It should deliver an audio experience above and beyond the usual tinny flatscreen offerings.
Being a Bang & Olufsen product, it of course comes with a hefty premium price tag attached. Prices start at £4,995 for the BeoVision 11 sets (around $8,000).
In stores now, those with deep pockets can take one home today.
