    Showcasing Elegant Danish Designs to Deliver Sound and Video Art at the
    Biggest Art Show in North America

    MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Dec. 5 /CNW/ -- Bang & Olufsen, the worldwide
manufacturer of high end audio and video products, partners with Art Basel
Miami Beach to provide state-of-the-art audio and video displays for the 2007
show in Miami, Florida.  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 producing clean,
beautiful designs makes the company the ideal choice for exhibiting
true-to-life sound and picture art at the legendary Art Basel Miami Beach
show, Thursday - Sunday, 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 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(R) package of picture technologies and
acoustic clarity of the voice track.  VisionClear(R) includes an
anti-reflective contrast screen that ensures a pleasurable viewing experience
even in strong daylight and a glare polarizer that improves the screen's
contrast conditions resulting in sharper images, more natural movements,
blacker blacks, and automatic picture control.  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.  MSRP $13,250.
    BeoSound 6, Bang & Olufsen's newest mp3 player, consists of high quality
materials and detailed craftsmanship, resulting 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. MSRP $600.
    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.  MSRP $460.
    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 light
condition of the room.  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.  MSRP $13,500.
