Bang & Olufsen announced today that they are re-releasing their BeoVision 7-40 HDTV. But the TV will receive two new upgrades, 3D technology and an integrated Blu-ray player. The 40 inch plasma is capable of displaying a 1200:1 contrast ratio and full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. â€œThe fact that you can select a solution where the 3D Blu-ray player is built-in is rather unique and Bang & Olufsen is one of the very few companies in the world who offers that,â€ states Ole Moltsen, Senior Product Manager from Bang & Olufsen. â€œ3D functionality is in increasing demand right now where Hollywood as well as the gaming industry is starting to produce more material suited for 3D viewing. At the same time, more and more TV channels â€“ in particular sports channels â€“ are beginning to broadcast for example important football matches from Premier League in 3D. However, the quality of the 2D experience is just as important because it is still what our customers will use the most.â€ The company did not announce if the price would change or not.
