The award-winning BeoVision 7 LCD home theater master, the BeoSound 6 and BeoSound 2 mp3 players, and the BeoVision 4 plasma screen will be featured in the Art Video Lounge, Art Sound Lounge and Art Salon. Bang & Olufsen’s world renowned excellence in technology and design makes the company the ideal choice for exhibiting true-to-life sound and picture art at the legendary Art Basel Miami Beach show, December 6 – 9, 2007.
“We are very proud to partner with Art Basel Miami Beach this year,” says Zean Nielsen, President of Bang & Olufsen America, Inc. “As this is the most important art show in North America, it is an honor that Bang & Olufsen’s revolutionary designs have been chosen as the setting for the creative sound and video art. Not only are our products a design statement in and of themselves, but our superior acoustic and picture competences ensure that the artists’ works remain true to the original.”
Guests will receive a hands-on experience of BeoVision 7 in the Art Video Lounge, BeoSound 6 and BeoSound 2 in the Art Sound Lounge, and BeoVision 4 in the Art Salon. Various video artworks will be streamed on six BeoVision 7 40 inch flat screens for guests to enjoy while listening to the Form 2 Headphones. The BeoSound 6 and BeoSound 2 mp3 players, also with Form 2 Headphones, will deliver audio artwork while guests walk through the gardens at the exhibit. During speeches and stage performances in the Art Salon, the BeoVision 4 65 inch plasma screen will serve as the background display for presentations and images.
Bang & Olufsen’s BeoVision 7 combines state-of-the-art technology with beautiful design to provide the perfect balance between sound and picture performance, with its VisionClear® package of picture technologies and acoustic clarity of the voice track.
VisionClear® includes automatic picture control, an anti-reflective contrast screen that ensures a pleasurable viewing experience even in strong daylight, and a glare polarizer that further improves contrast resulting in sharper images, more natural movements and blacker blacks.
BeoVision 7 lends a magical user experience with its electronic curtains that glide aside when switched on, a DVD loader that swings out gracefully from below the screen, and its tilt-and-turn aluminum stands. Additionally, BeoVision 7 is built with dual glass screens, making it as pleasant to view from the back as it is from the front.
BeoSound 6, Bang & Olufsen’s newest mp3 player highlights high quality materials and detailed craftsmanship in a sleek design that looks as good as it sounds. Surrounded by a stainless steel frame and featuring a black soft-touch lacquered surface and a scratch-resistant glass display, the result is crystal clear, impeccable design. BeoSound 6 delivers pure CD sound quality, and allows up to 40 hours of playback – double the market standard for battery life.
Bang & Olufsen’s BeoSound 2 is a stylish mp3 player with one-step functionality and clean CD sound quality. It features a unique, round stainless steel design, and fits right into the pocket or carrying case for discreet listening. The lack of any moving parts ensures no interruptions of music playing, and makes BeoSound 2 almost weightless. It utilizes SD memory card technology, so music transferred from the computer or other Bang & Olufsen audio players is easily enjoyed on the go.
BeoVision 4 is Bang & Olufsen’s plasma flat screen solution with superb picture quality. Framed in robust brushed aluminum, the screen features a special anti-reflection coating that prevents light reflections, and the Automatic Picture Control sensor adjusts brightness and contrast in any ambient light condition. Based on a global digital platform – the BeoSystem 3 processor – it accommodates up to seventy connections, including HDMI, cable, satellite, High Definition DVD, mp3 players, and has a built-in home theater control module. BeoSystem 3’s picture engine constantly analyzes and optimizes incoming signals and measures the changing light levels in the room, ensuring the best viewing experience possible.
