Bang & Olufsen has launched a new 65-inch plasma television line that the company says will "take both sound and vision into a new era." The BeoVision 12-65 New Generation 1080P television boasts a motorised floor stand in some configurations to move the 65-inch Bang & Olufsen flagship screen to the user's favorite viewing position on command, as well as a discrete "video engine" that can be installed in a different location than the television.

A dedicated centre channel speaker integrated below the screen is included as standard as part of a full 7.1 surround sound module. The BeoVision 12 New Generation includes a number of dedicated sound modes designed to automatically optimize the film viewing, gaming or dedicated music playback for users. Custom profiles can be configured as well.

The controlling BeoSystem 4 video engine is placed in a dedicated cabinet that can be placed in a separate room for a more streamlined media room installation. The dedicated cabinet acts as hub for an entire entertainment system, giving users complete control from one remote or a smart device.

The 1080p, 65-inch screen set is 3D-capable, requiring active shutter glasses. The video engine cabinet boasts five class D amplifiers, with 4 80W midrange amplifiers, and an additional 45W tweeter amp. The audio system has a frequency range of 100Hz to 20KHz.

A wall-mounted version of the BeoVision 12-65 New Generation is available for $15,995. The unit mounted on a motorized floor stand retails for $17,895.

In conjunction with the television, Bang & Olufsen and American artist Miya Ando have teamed up to present "Transformations, Bang & Olufsen by Miya Ando" -- a series of 20 hand-dyed, anodized aluminum paintings and hand painted Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 12 loudspeakers, similar to those included with the new television. A descendant of Bizen sword makers, Ando was raised among sword smiths and Buddhist priests in a temple in Okayama, Japan and in a redwood forest in Northern California. Combining traditional techniques of her ancestry with modern industrial technology, Ando transforms plates of anodized aluminium into ephemeral, abstract paintings.
