Bang & Olufsen’s beautiful new TV adjusts itself to suit your surroundings
Bang & Olufsen makes some luxuriously unusual TVs, and its latest is designed to adapt itself to your viewing conditions.
The black aluminium-clad BeoVision Horizon has a neat party trick, which is automatic image optimisation. There is a sensor that measures lighting conditions and adjusts the picture accordingly. Apparently the TV was designed with ‘flexible living’ in mind.
In keeping with that philosophy, the BeoVision Horizon has various placement options. It can be wall-mounted like a hotel TV, or displayed on a set of wheels like you used to have at school. There’s also a 360-degree rotating floor stand. Too fancy? Then you can put it directly on the floor with the easel stand. These are optional extras retailing from £215.

Other smarts include the Android TV smart platform, which is compatible with Google Cast. There is also a inside to fit a small hard drive or an Apple TV box.
The built-in speakers are bolstered by cleverly angled aluminium, but you can add wireless speakers. The BeoVision Horizon will integrate with multiroom products from Bang & Olufsen and B&O Play.
By now it must be apparent that B&O is not concerned with chasing specifications. This is a 4K UHD TV, but there’s no mention of HDR.
The Bang & Olufsen BeoVision Horizon is available in two sizes: 40 inches (£2,495) and 48 inches (£3,695). If only my savings account could adjust itself accordingly.
