Bang & Olufsen prepares 'budget' TV

updated 04:10 pm EDT, Tue May 1, 2007

B&O BeoVision 8 TV

The luxury electronics company Bang & Olufsen is developing what may be its closest equivalent to a "budget" television. The BeoVision 8 is a 26-inch set, and will sell for 1,800 ($3,600) without a stand. The price is mainly for the brand name and styling, as its maximum resolution is 1366x768 (less than 1080p), and there is only one HDMI input, and no digital TV tuner to speak of. It will however have 1,200:1 contrast and 500cd/m2 brightness, as well as B&O's famous audio, provided by a pair of two-inch tweeter/midrange drivers and a single four-inch bass driver. When the BeoVision 8 ships, a custom stand will cost 200 ($400). [via Tech Digest]
