BeoVision 5500

Manufactured: 1980 - 1982
Designer:
Colours: Teak or rosewood

Beovision 5500 had a 50cm High Bright tube with automatic contrast regulation, so the picture always looked bright and clear, with true-to-life colour even in daylight viewing.

Quality was not compromised simply because it was physically a small set. Picture and sound reproduction used the same high technology as that featured on the 26" Beovision 8800. The remote control system wa also identical, with up to 16 channels available for instant selection.

Beovision 5500 - like the other Beovisions in this family - was exceptionally cool running, with maximum power consumption under 75 watts - less than an ordinary light bulb! Because less heat was generated inside the set, vital components were exposed to less physical stress and therefore had a longer working life. High reliability was, and still is, an important factor when choosing a new TV.

If remote control or access to Teletext was not required, then Beovision 5000 was a suitable alternative offering manual selection of up to 12 stations. The rest of the facilities offered by this television set were the same as its more luxurious brother, the Beovision 5500.
