BeoVision 6 - 26 LCD Television
Manufactured: 2004 - present
Designer: David Lewis
BeoVision 6 - 26 is a flat 26" widescreen television based on LCD technology. It is the second member of the BeoVision 6 family and holds all the virtues and conceptual elements of the current 22” version. This new model is provided with the newer - Mark III version of the Beo4 remote control.
LCD technology makes it possible to offer a television that combines an extremely slim depth with an outstanding picture quality. Complemented by a powerful integrated loudspeaker system the 26" widescreen makes BeoVision 6 - 26 very suitable as a main room television which can function as a Beolink master and even as master unit in a home-cinema setup.
The compact and flat design makes BeoVision 6 - 26 a very flexible television which will fit most homes. With a broad and unique stand selection, the user is offered great freedom in placing the TV to blend in with most environments.
BeoVision 6 - 26 Press Release September 2004
Bang & Olufsen has now released the BeoVision 6 - 26 television, the newest addition to the BeoVision 6 family. With a 26” widescreen, a powerful loudspeaker system, and the option of a digital surround sound module, the BeoVision 6 - 26 can fill the role as a main room television, and yet at only 18 cm deep, still offers the flexibility and versatility of the smaller 22” BeoVision 6 - 22.
“The BeoVision 6 idea is for an elegant and simple plug-and-play television concept that integrates picture and sound in a compact cabinet, designed to integrate easily into your home,” says Torben Ballegård Sørensen, CEO, Bang & Olufsen and adds: “The BeoVision 6 - 26 has a bigger screen and optional surround sound, and those who wish to experience the BeoVision 6 idea as their home cinema can now do so.”
The flexible TV
In addition to connections for BeoLab loudspeakers, external entertainment sources and earphones, the BeoVision 6 - 26 television offers digital interface with a PC. It can also enter into any home system with all Beolink-enabled Bang & Olufsen products. Beolink is Bang & Olufsen’s unique home integration system, based on the principle of ‘move and share the experience – not the equipment’, with everything controlled by the Beo4 remote control.
The 26” widescreen LCD monitor and the two-way active stereo loudspeakers positioned full-length below the screen are placed against a frame of brushed aluminium. The curved rear of the cabinet is coated in a resilient black soft-touch lacquer, making the BeoVision 6 - 26 television attractive to look at from all angles.
A complete viewing and listening experience
Bang & Olufsen’s VisionClear picture competences ensure the best possible picture from the LCD monitor in all situations. VisionClear covers a range of technologies that the viewer experiences in the form of greater viewing comfort, but hardly notices.
BeoVision 6 - 26 represents the complete application of VisionClear. When BeoVision 6 - 26 is switched on, the TV automatically adjusts contrast levels, brilliance and colour to match the current light conditions – and will carry on doing so until the television is switched off again. The anti-reflection coating on the contrast screen reduces significantly the effect of incoming light on the screen. The dark-tinted contrast screen in front of the LCD monitor makes the screen darker when not showing an image.
At Bang & Olufsen, the listening experience is considered as important as the viewing experience. The compact, two-way active stereo loudspeakers are placed attractively under the picture and indicate a strong sound performance. The BeoVision 6 - 26 television offers the viewer a superior home cinema listening experience when used with any BeoLab loudspeakers, with the television's loudspeakers functioning as a powerful mono centre loudspeaker.
Place it anywhere
The many placement options complement the compact design perfectly. The motorised turn function on the floor and table stand is controlled from the Beo4 remote control, turning the television towards the viewer, and reducing the viewing angle. The manual tilt mechanism also contributes to the best possible viewing conditions and means the BeoVision 6 - 26 can be placed at the height that suits best on the floor, table, or wall.
“A genuine Bang & Olufsen product is more than the sum of the parts that went into its manufacture. The comprehensive stand programme, to name but one example, provides more than placement flexibility for BeoVision 6 - 26; it also changes the identity of the television, depending on where and how the television is used,” concludes Torben Ballegård Sørensen.
Founded in 1925 in Struer, Denmark, Bang & Olufsen a/s is world renowned for its distinctive range of quality consumer electronic products that represent our vision: Courage to constantly question the ordinary in search of surprising, long-lasting experiences.

Mounting Options & Stands
The tilt table mount was available for counter top mounting, designed to allow the bass port on the underside of the TV to 'breath'. Motorised floor and table stands were complimented by a wall mount bracket which gave manual tilt and turn.

Distributed throughout the World by the Bang & Olufsen store network, the STB options add to the diversity of mounting options and positions available.
