Like other Bang & Olufsen colour TVs, Beovision 3602 had the automatic cut-off regulating circuit which ensured natural colours throughout the set's useful lifetime. The in-line picture tube allowed for easier and better convergence in order to avoid the usual discoloured edges - not least when viewing a black & white transmission.
Internally the Beovision 3602 was identical to the Beovision 3502 so one obtained the same outstanding picture quality and equally good sound reproduction from the large, forward-facing loudspeaker.
On the easy-touch panel one could select programmes and turn on the set in the same action. Regulators that are not used often are hidden in tow touch-release compartments - one for sound and one for video adjustments. Power consumption was exceedingly low - only 110 watts and the low heat generation made this set suitable for placing in a shelving unit.
Optional accessories: Mobile X-shaped undercarriage or trumpet-shaped stand, both in polished alloy.
