    Excellent audio and mind-blowing visuals

    As noted, LG Electronics' OLED TV technology is known to reproduce the most lifelike images with its pixel dimming control technology that renders perfect blacks, infinite contrast and an expanded colour gamut. And combined with the most immersive B&O's audio technologies, the overall multimedia experience can leave you spellbound.

    We had a chance to experience the audio-video setup at brand's store in New Delhi and the overall experience left us mesmerized. The clear and immersive audio by B&O combined with LG's gorgeous OLED TV technology makes BeoVision Eclipse a force to reckon with.

    The TV unit itself looks downright premium and comes with a floor mounted motorized floor stand. With a push of a button, the TV move soundlessly across the floor, to a maximum of 90 degrees making it easy to change the viewing angle as per your requirement. In addition to the floor stand, BeoVision Eclipse can be placed on a motorized or manual wall bracket.

    Customizable and Premium design

    If you opt to use additional speakers via the integrated surround sound decoder, the centre channel performance of the TV matches any of the Bang &Olufsen high-end BeoLab loudspeakers. In other words, this enables an immersive cinematic experience in your own home.

    Bang &Olufsen aesthetic simplicity can be seen in the overall audio-video setup. The slim glass surface continues beneath the SoundCentre, which in turn expands beyond the screen on both sides.

    This makes for some exciting contrasts - between image and sound, slimness and volume. However, at the same time, the design naturally integrates all elements in an appealing design. You can also customise the speaker front by choosing either aluminium or coloured fabrics.

    Control everything with the Smart Remote Control

    The entire audio-video setup is remote controlled with a single remote. Termed as BeoRemote One BT, the remote control allows for a great degree of personalization. By pushing one of the ‘MyButton' for three seconds, it is possible to store access to a source, creating a shortcut to content or devices - e.g. streaming services, personal content or a Blu-Ray player. The remote control itself is pretty premium and offers all the required features and controls at your fingertips.

    Conclusion

    BeoVision Eclipse is a one-of-its kind audio-video setup that is engineered to deliver a premium unmatched multimedia experience. The Danish brands' immersive audio technology fuses seamlessly with LG's vivid OLED TV technology that is bound to deliver a cinematic audio-video experience right in your living room.

    The price is undoubtedly steep and can leave some bankrupt, but truly displays the capabilities of design, innovation and premium craftsmanship in audio and video category. If you are ready to spend, refer to the introduction to experience the immersive technology in brand's exclusive stores across the country.
