Despite an inked deal in early 2016, the Bang & Olufsen partnership with LG has only just unfolded in the shape of the BeoVision Eclipse.
Bang & Olufsen have a few TVs in their portfolio right now - and have notably been making TVs for decades - but the BeoVision Eclipse is heavily influenced by LG's commitment to OLED. This is B&O's fourth 4K offering but the first to have an OLED screen and, more importantly, the first in their lineup to support Dolby Vision HDR. The OLED screen will have absolute black and an infinite contrast ratio thanks to the technologies provided by LG, the three-pete champions of CE Week's TV Shootout.
The BeoVision Eclipse features a 3-channel soundbar cutting through the lower-third of the screen that is the beautiful — if nothing else quirky — aesthetic expected from B&O. The soundbar is offered in six variations, five colored fabrics and one with just the aluminum grill. B&O also notes their patented aluminum grill a progression of larger holes from top to bottom to allow more airflow for lower frequencies. The 450-watt sound bar is equipped with one 1-inch tweeter, two 2.5-inch full range drivers, and three 4-inch woofers and has a 7.1 surround sound module to play nice with home theater setups.
