BeoVision Avant 28 RF DVD

BeoVision

Production: 04/2002 - 01/2004

Designer: David Lewis

BeoVision Avant 28 RF DVD was again available in the same five shades of high-gloss pearlescent paint.  However, instead of the combined VHS video recorder, this set included a DVD player on its top left-hand side. The TV amplifier delivered 2 x 39 watts of sound through its integrated active speakers.

Looking very similar to the CD mechanism on the Beocenter AV5, the DVD player was a discrete mechanism which worked well and was very reliable. But, unlike the Beocenter AV5 where the medium of CDi was not at all relevant to the marketplace, the inclusion of a DVD player was a useful step forward and helped this television - as well as the other Avant DVD models - become good sellers.

A VHS video recorder, as well as a satellite decoder, could be used with the set as standalone units, as there were sufficient connectors at the rear of the unit to permit this with ease.

However, because customers’ aspirations were moving rapidly towards larger-screened televisions, this particular model did not remain in the product range for very long.
