Bang & Olufsen Announces BeoVision 4-103 103in Plasma

Bang & Olufsen has announced plans to add a 103in model to its BeoVision 4-series TVs. Called the BeoVision 4-103, the set packs the same panel as inside the Panasonic TH-103PF9; after all who else could supply such panels? The surrounding package is a little different, though.

Obviously the same 1,920 x 1,080 resolution is present, but the image processing comes courtesy B&W's own BeoSystem 3 and VisionClear technology. Apparently tweaks include automatic re-calibration of colours and brightness every 120 hours of use - just to make sure everything is still okay.

As this accompanying video shows, the TV is set on a stand which rises when turned on to reveal a loudspeaker. Sure, it's a gimmick but if I were spending around €100,000 on a television that's exactly the kind of pointless but cool feature I'd want!

Awesome stand aside, given they use the same panel, the choice between the B&O and Panasonic set seems to come down to whether B&O's audio kit is also of interest. That and UK pricing once the BeoVision 4-103 is available in July.

Did you say wallets at the ready! LOL

I'm not sure, in these deflationary times if you can still get 100% mortgage on TV's. Mind you I am sure B&O will be able to "improve" or is that "add value" on the &#16347k that Panasonic want.. <gulp>

before anyone gasps at the price tag of this set may i suggest they and especially the author of this piece visit a b and o shop and see for themselves at what theyre spending their money on

The amazing thing is that there are people who will find the money, even in these recessionary times.

There is no doubt that B and O do add style to their products, and some people are happy to pay for that.

I will stick to my Sony 28FX68 which serves me well.

Good old reliable CRT with no motion blur!

@ffrankmccaffery - you're joking right I could not justify spending that sort of money on a TV. I seriously doubt that the improvements over my 50" Pioneer Plasma would be worth an additional 45 to 50K.

Even if I had money to burn I wouldn't.

Hmmm, I don't think I would want my expensive TV moving itself that close to the floor ready to be accidentally kicked!
