    BeoVision 7 combines state-of-the-art technology with beautiful design to
produce an incredible entertainment system. It provides the perfect balance
between sound and picture performance, with its VisionClear package of High
Definition picture technologies, acoustic clarity of the voice track and
strong sound reproduction. The digital sound module supports surround sound in
7.1 channels and the connection of BeoLab loudspeakers, including the BeoLab
7-2 and BeoLab 7-4 for the center channel.
    "We are very excited for the arrival of BeoVision 7 as it is truly an
unparalleled LCD television and home entertainment unit that exhibits renowned
Bang & Olufsen design and technology," said Kim Gravesen, President of Bang &
Olufsen America. "This product is a great representation of our home theater
capabilities and our constant drive to ensure the ultimate user experience. We
believe BeoVision 7 will resonate well with customers because of its sleek
form, superior performance, and advanced picture qualities."

    
    A complete entertainment system
    
    BeoVision 7 is based on a global digital platform. With highly advanced
signal processing that provides corresponding improvement in the picture
quality, as well as supporting full High Definition, BeoVision 7 delivers a
superb picture, and even access to its own built-in DVD player for an
exceptional cinema experience in the comforts of home.
    BeoVision 7 offers users two impressive center channel sound solutions
for maximum customization. The vertical BeoLab 7-4 loudspeaker provides
incredible precision and acoustic clarity of the voice track of a film or
television program. Utilizing the patented Acoustic Lens Technology, BeoLab
7-4 ensures a perfect sound dispersion from the treble at an even 180 degrees
throughout the room. Alternatively, the horizontal BeoLab 7-2 stereo
loudspeaker makes for the ultimate stereo television experience.

    
    The best possible picture -- and the best of everything else
    
    Bang & Olufsen's skills with the VisionClear package of picture
technologies ensure the best possible picture from the LCD monitor in all
situations. VisionClear represents a collection of Bang & Olufsen technologies
applied to create an optimal picture performance. These technologies include
daylight adaptation with an anti-reflective contrast screen for pleasurable
viewing even in strong light; more natural movements are created with an
adaptive motion compensation algorithm; dynamic noise reduction monitors
source signals and dull pictures; and automatic picture control sensors ensure
a richer screen experience. When BeoVision 7 is switched on, the TV
automatically adjusts the picture quality to match the current light
conditions -- and continues to do so until the television is switched off.

    
    A sense of magic
    
    BeoVision 7 incorporates all of Bang & Olufsen's core competences,
including the element of humanization through the mechanical movements of the
products. When switched on, the electronic curtains glide aside, and when
activated, the DVD loader swings out from below the screen in a silent, smooth
movement. It embraces the DVD with a prismatic lighting effect, which also
illuminates the text on the disc.
    Additionally, BeoVision 7 features a motorized floor stand and wall
bracket, giving complete freedom to tilt and turn the screen from one's
viewing position with a simple touch on the remote control. BeoVision 7 can be
set to turn automatically to the viewing position when switched on, and to
return to a resting position when switched off.
    Even reading informational text offers a surprising and pleasant user
experience. The vertical display text provides instant recognition of the TVs
operational status, volume, and the entertainment source, and is placed to the
right of the widescreen so as not to break the design lines.

    
    Flexible placement and integration
    
    BeoVision 7 has many placement options, including a table stand, floor
stand, or wall bracket. In addition to the natural aluminum finish, BeoVision
7 is available in black, dark grey, red and blue.
    BeoVision 7 can be setup as part of Bang & Olufsen's BeoLink home
integration system, based on the principle of 'move the experience -- not the
equipment,' with everything controlled by Beo4.
    BeoVision 7 will arrive in all North American showrooms this summer 2007.
Expected MSRP $13,250 USD, including the BeoLab 7-2 or BeoLab 7-4 center
channel loudspeaker. Stand options range from $500 to $1000 and include
rotating floorstand, tablestand, and/or wall bracket.
