While other tech gadgets seem to be getting smaller, TVs are getting much bigger (and thankfully thinner) with rapidly improving picture quality and modern design, among other advancements. The Danish electronics company, Bang & Olufsen, is no stranger to these advancements. In fact, the brand has been a key player in both the technological and design improvements that we’ve seen in televisions (and many AV electronics) over the last century. The BeoVision Capro TV released in 1959 marked the beginning of the label’s crack at televisions, featuring a modern (at the time) TV encased in teak wood with fixed legs. This minimal yet modern TV would blaze the trail for B&O’s future releases and bring us to today with a new Beovision Harmony TV. Based on previous variations in the series, The Bang & Olufsen Beovision Harmony Light Oak 97” TV has a new 97-inch OLED screen (the largest available on the market) and comes in a light oak combined with natural aluminum material.
The main attraction here is obviously the new 97-inch 4K OLED panel, making it the second available TV with a screen that size, following the LG G2. Other than that, the TV will have all the features of the previous releases, like the motorized unfolding speakers and a built-in sound processor, along with streaming and Bluetooth connections.
It wouldn’t be a B&O product without a minimal and luxurious design, which the new Bevision Harmony TV certainly has. This new version is only available in light oak wood, but customizations can be made regarding the metal and accessories. Although we’ve yet to see a 100” OLED TV (or 8K resolution on one this size), we’re getting close, and it’s likely Bang & Olufsen will be among the first to do it.
The Bang & Olufsen Beovision Harmony Light Oak 97” TV is available in three finishes, including natural and gold aluminum and black anthracite, for $63,075.
