First Smart TV in range, includes HbbTV support

Bang & Olufsen has put a Smart TV on sale, the first in its television range. The BeoVision 11 Smart TV looks similar to the BeoVision 10, except it has a selection of onboard apps that can connect to the Internet. It is also one of the first televisions to support hybrid broadband TV (HbbTV), a pan-European standard for personalized and interactive TV services.

Released in three sizes, all of the Full HD 1080p resolution sets have access to Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, and region-specific services. A BeoRemote app for iOS and Android aids in navigation, and work alongside the remote control. An Ethernet connection and 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi provide network connectivity for the apps, as well as accessing content through DLNA. Two USB ports, six HDMI sockets and a dedicated space inside the cabinet for Apple TV round off the connectivity options.

The two-sided LED backlight features .5D local dimming for improved contrast in 2D viewing, while a new video engine driving the 200Hz LED-based LCD screen with glare polarizer helps define the 2D and 3D imagery. Digital noise and motion blur are claimed to be reduced through the engine.

The 40, 46, and 55-inch versions of the BeoVision 1 Smart are in Bang & Olufsen stores now, starting at around $8000. [via Pocket-Lint]
