Sound, picture and digital entertainment at its finest
The BeoVision 11 sets new standards as an entertainment center for televisions. The new TV was conceived to provide the entire family with a comprehensive array of up-to-date digital entertainment of the highest calibre – without compromising the timeless aesthetics, intuitive controls and high-quality sound that Bang & Olufsen is famous for. Each component of the BeoVision 11 consists of carefully selected materials and is made with uncompromising perfection.
At first glance, the BeoVision 11 seduces with its stunning lines. Taking a look behind the elegant scenes, you will find countless innovations inside its interior, that will kidnap your senses into a whole new world. Developed according to the highest quality standards, the LCD display is characterized by its outstanding performance potential. Razor-sharp images and powerful sound opens up completely new dimensions.
The sound: Listen and be amazed
Producing high-quality and powerful sound from the limited physical volume of a flatscreen cabinet is a contradiction in terms for most manufactures. Not for Bang & Olufsen. Behind the attractive speaker cover there are fully active three-way speakers with a sensational bass unit for its size. Customized drivers and efficient ICEpower amplifiers achieve unparalleled acoustic depth and power. The speaker cabinets were mounted in rubber bushings to prevent oscillations in the TV set. An efficient new digital signal processing algorithm seamlessly switches between specific sound modes back and forth – depending on whether music, sports, drama, movies, etc. are recognized as a source.
The integrated three-way speaker system is powerful enough for most environments. However, if you want a more intensive sound, you can connect a pair of Bang & Olufsen speakers to your BeoVision 11 or make the whole thing as a complete surround-sound setup. The TrueImageTM technology provides through up-or downmixing that the tone of your BeoVision 11 is always precisely matched to your speaker setup.
The image: Arresting Moments
A film should be shown as the director intended. And also a PlayStation game must burst from the screen and update with lightening speed. The BeoVision 11 offers extensive entertainment options, in order to deliver constantly optimal and authentic results. Thus, the “movie” mode, for example, spent richer, warmer colors. This mode can be set for various sources, such as Blu-ray, so you can enjoy your movies from the first scene, as they were originally intended. The “Game” mode is the answer to the challenges of modern games consoles. It limits input-to-output delays to a minimum. Whether you play against your children or your friends – with the excellent execution of BeoVision 11, you can completely immerse yourself in the action.
When the electronic curtains of BeoVision 11 slide to the side, they give a clear view of a razor sharp image with incredible depth and impressively, rich colors. This experience will change your expectation horizon sustainable. Unnoticed by us our eyes constantly analyse and adapt to lighting conditions around us. The functioning of the BeoVision 11 was designed very similar. A discreet sensor is housed at the top of the aluminum frame. The sensor constantly measures and analyses light conditions in the room to make sure your viewing experience is comfortable and optimised whatever the conditions. It is even considered, the light reflected from white walls behind the TV set, and the image is adjusted accordingly. Each pixel receives exactly as much light as the sensor data planed. Here, the lighting conditions in the room as well as the image that is currently on the screen, are considered.
The adaptive contrast function ensures that the darker areas of a scene are played jet black and with optimal contrast even in most lurid daylight. The 1,5-D-section dimming optimizes the contrast of 2D images while the so-called “judder cancellation” provides for flowing picture reproduction.
Movies usually run at 24 frames per second, which is not always ideal for TV. Using advanced compensating interpolation techniques, BeoVision 11 calculates the position of images and puts them together to form the original image. That gives you a noticeably smoother enjoyment.
Unparalleled 3D images
3D technology alone is not enough. A 3D film should keep your senses on tour and give you, based on exhilarating crystal sharp imagery, the feeling that you are part of the action. The glass screen through which the image is rendered, plays a key role. At Bang & Olufsen the image engineers go no compromises. To be exact, there are exactly two global manufacturers whose glass meets the meticulous demands of the engineers. The BeoVision 11 has two of these high-quality 2-mm glass plates with reflection-reducing coating on both sides to ensure even in lurid sunlight outstanding clarity and optimal contrast.
The Smart TV platform: Easy to move between TV and Internet
The BeoVision 11 is the first Bang & Olufsen TV with Smart TV – a new platform that allows you to easily switch between TV channels and the internet back and forth. The simultaneous presentation of TV and Internet windows is possible with the picture-and-picture function. Post comments on Twitter, recommend apps, track your favorite shows and more. And all of this has an elegant user interface that is so easy to use and intuitive, that the whole family will benefit.

This logo is a direct connection to the on-demand content of the sender and makes the day before broadcasted news and programs accessible to you.
Not all features are available in all markets. The availability of HbbTV is broadcaster-specific. Furthermore, they may have restrictions as to which content can be recorded on the built-in hard disk. The apps available in Bang & Olufsen Smart TV vary from market to market.
