bang & olufsen's 4k TV with android is a minimalist masterpiece



bang & olufsen beovision 14: this 4k ultra HD LED TV features a world of connectivity options, integrated access to exciting apps and boasting a more immersive sound than most standalone speaker systems. the 4k ultra HDTV is influenced by scandinavian design and pays homage to the best of traditional craft tradition of bang & olufsen. it has a timeless elegance which combines exceptional audio, crisp imaging and advanced connectivity options.

the television celebrates its minimalist aesthetic with premium features



it features a minimalist design aesthetic and boasts a 4k ultra HD pixel resolution. ‘beovision 14’ communicates with the android tv platform and, therefore, has built-in google cast abilities, enabling the streaming of movies, photos, and music directly from a smartphone or tablet at the simple touch of a button. it is also capable of streaming new formats such as high efficiency video coding (HEVC), which allows the transmission of 4k content directly from online sources.

the warmth of wood chosen for the cover of the speaker is inspired by the acoustic experience of ‘beolab 18’ which has the same style of oak slats. three-way custom speakers adorn the front, which are covered by ultra-thin oak wood lamellas. the audio components are based on that found in the ‘beolab 18’ loudspeaker. a cloth front cover can be chosen instead of the elegant oak allowing the television to blend into a number of environments seamlessly.

‘beovision 14’ has two LCD screen options, 40 or 55 inches, featuring anti-reflective front glass that reduces the reflection of the display to an extent even greater than 98%. the TV also offers sophisticated processing to ensure optimal images and sounds in all situations — while watching a movie, listening to music and gaming.

the bright television is fully integrated with all other ‘multiroom beolink’ products from bang & olufsen. to accompany the launch of ‘beovision 14’, the danish manufacturing company presents a new version of their ‘beoremote one’. the smart control with bluetooth features four new ‘mybuttons’, which are essentially buttons that allow viewers to take a snapshot of a setting and returning it as such with a simple touch.

the latest addition to the bang & olufsen collection offers total freedom in terms of placement options. its flat fascia allows for the TV to hang on the wall like a piece of modern artwork, plus an integrated motorized floor stand can be adjusted simply using the ‘beoremote’ — to the left or right, or it can be tilted in place it on a fixed stand.
