BeoSystem 2

BeoSystem

Production: 2004 - present

Designer: David Lewis

BeoSystem 2 was the A/V processor specifically designed for use with Beovision 4 plasma televisions.

Looking no more than a small cupboard the necessary electronics were contained within to allow full remote control by way of a Beo4 remote control terminal, of all the functions of a sophisticated A/V system.

A DVD1 or HDR1 from the Bang & Olufsen range could be added to enlarge the system as well as a whole host of other manufacturers’ products including S-VHS, Blu-Ray or HDTV through the comprehensive number of connections. MasterLink was also provided to facilitate around-the-house music and video control of an otherwise feature-lacking BeoVision four plasma screen.
