B&O 103-inch plasma HDTV
Bang & Olufsen has announced on Thursday it will release its giant 103-inch plasma HDTV this summer. The set is called the BeoVision 4-103 and together with its motorized stand, weighs in at 1,100lbs. The stand will motor up to reveal a center channel speaker that is also motorized and comes out to sit flush with the screen. Users can also adjust the angle and rotate the display to face them squarely via the remote control. The plasma panel comes from a same-size Panasonic display.
The set includes B&O's BeoSystem 3 stage manager and VisionClear technology that will automatically adjust color and brightness levels every 120 hours of operation.
The TV can be pre-ordered now and will ship in July in Europe, with pricing set at $137,000. The TV does, however, ship with the company's $5,377 BeoSound 5 home theater audio system and remote touchscreen remote control. [via FlatPanelsHD]
