Widescreen as you wish from Bang & Olufsen

Widescreen-viewing, eye-catching colours, powerful sound, a 77cm viewable screen and customer optimisation characterise BeoVision 3. Numerous placement possibilities for colourful viewing experiences allows BeoVision 3 to stand out from the dark masses of today's widescreen television sets.

Television may be for everyone, but your own TV should be just for you. With the new BeoVision 3 (introduced late 2001), a wide-screen experience awaits everyone the way that TV should be. Close your eyes and imagine your perfect TV. Should it have the latest digital surround sound decoder and a connection for extra loudspeakers? Integrated control of your satellite and DVD sources? And what about an anti-reflective contrast screen to improve your viewing comfort? Whatever you opt for, what you get as standard is Bang & Olufsen sound and picture quality - and a luxurious television experience that matches your own personal needs exactly.

When it comes to widescreen television, you may think that you've seen it all before. But take a look at the BeoVision 3 and see what happens when intelligent design meets state-of the art technology. A perfect 76cm (viewable picture) screen and truly great sound removes the distance between you and what's happening on the screen.

Picture it for yourself: A widescreen TV elegantly framed in a colour of your choice. BeoVision 3 is designed to match your personal environment as well as your demands for a perfect viewing experience.

Clear Vision

What is it you're watching on the screen? A true picture or poor image? BeoVision 3's real-flat screen offers the best viewing possible and the widescreen format ensures that it's made for movie-watching.

The more you can lose yourself in a film, the more enjoyable the experience becomes. That's why B&O tries to eliminate anything that can come between you and a good picture. Like reflections. A special coating on the screen reduces them to an absolute minimum and ensures you a perfect viewing experience.

VisionClear is not something you're meant to notice, but just enjoy. It starts already when you switch your BeoVision 3 on. Within a second it adjusts contrast levels, brilliance and colour to match the unique light conditions in the room - and will carry on doing so until you switch off again.

Sound is half the picture

The crisp highs and thunderous lows that accompany today's video entertainment ring out loud and clear thanks to B&O's active loudspeaker competencies. Whether you wish to enjoy the broad stereo perspective provided by BeoVision 3's built-in stereo speakers, or opt for a five speaker, BeoLab 2 subwoofer-led multi-channel surround sound experience, you'll gain a whole new way to look at sound.

Build-in options

A wealth of build-in module options provide BeoVision 3 with an outstandingly high level of customer optimisation. From 5.1 channel Dolby Digital surround sound, satellite reception or the ability to watch two programmes at once, BeoVision 3 can accommodate a myriad of customer needs. Additionally, BeoVision 3 can serve as a Beolink® master, distributing sound and picture throughout the home in B&O's patented distribution system. Full compatibility with all Beolink® enabled B&O products is naturally included, as well as seamless connections with Bang & Olufsen's DVD 1 and Beocord V8000 videotape recorder. Operation of all products takes place via the Beo4 remote control.


What's the best way to watch television? Your way! With BeoVision 3 you put together the TV you've always dreamed of - and once you've made your choices, it's a simple matter of sitting back and letting the show begin.

Where do you want it? BeoVision 3 can stand by itself or be placed on its own specially designed floor stand - with space for both a Beocord DVD1 and a Beocord V8000 video tape recorder.

Change colour as you change your mood

Red today, perhaps green or yellow tomorrow - the choice is yours. The coloured textile front, which encompasses the picture like a frame around a painting, may be exchanged with another in a new colour in seconds. No tools are required for this quick and easy operation. It just pulls off!

In the autumn of 2002 a motor base/stand was introduced to accommodate BeoVision 3 (see above). A new smaller version of the television was introduced in late 2003: BeoVision 3 28.
