Aquavision teams up with Bang & Olufsen
Aquavision, the in-wall and waterproof television manufacturer, has collaborated with Bang & Olufsen to develop seamless integration between the two companies’ products. Bang & Olufsen customers will now be able to control their Aquavision with the B&O remote control or BeoSystem 4.
B&O was interested in partnering with Aquavision, as B&O does not manufacture televisions smaller than 40”. The in-wall models from Aquavision were deemed to be a natural fit with Bang & Olufsen’s larger televisions.
The R&D department at Aquavision has developed the upgrade kit, which includes a replacement IR board, that is said to be “simple for a professional to install.” It can be used to upgrade the Nexus+, Genesis 2 and Pinnacle ranges from Aquavision and offers seamless integration with the BeoSystem 4 and Aquavision televisions without the need for separate IR transmitters and receivers.
Although the Aquavision brand is synonymous with waterproof and bathroom televisions, the company say that their in-wall design means they are increasingly being installed in main living areas of the home and being connected to audio systems such as Bang & Olufsen speakers and the BeoSystem 4 – B&O’s video engine optimised for a central installation that may include advanced sound setups and home automation systems.
Aquavision has also just published a new 62 page Buyers’ Guide.
