Beovision MX4500 - beauty and brains combined

At the time of its introduction in 1988, the 66cm Beovision MX4500 was the largest TV in B&O's innovative and stylish MX Series. But it was not just a pretty face: within the elegant cabinet was the same technology as that featured in the classic LX series. The flat-square picture tube featured B&O's advanced VisionClear system. Which means that, 50 times a second, the colour balance is automatically regulated to give you the most lifelike picture possible. The VisionClear system also included a Contrast Screen, which tones down the effects of strong light to ensure that your TV picture stays bright.

High-speed Teletext

A new interest to Teletext was given with B&Os highly advanced computer module, which allowed you to flip through the pages without having to wait. You could also store four pages permanently and flash them up just by pressing the Teletext button on the remote-control. Say you regularly like to be updated on the weather, TV programmes or the sports news - you could have

them all at your fingertips with MX4500.

Equipped for tomorrow's world

A NICAM decoder could also be installed in order to take full advantage of stereo broadcasts.

The choice is yours

Although the MX4500 was developed for the Beocord VHS 82.2 VCR, it also, needless to say, was perfectly happy to partner other video recorders. And there was a wealth of connecting options, including B&O's Beolink System.
