B&O‘s BeoVision 4 103″ plasma TV is huge. Using Panasonic‘s 103″ PDP (plasma display panel) the guys over at B&O enact a hefty premium over Panasonic’s own TH-103PF9 103″ plasma TV that goes for $70,000. But the 103″ from B&O has a very nice aluminum frame and a couple of other tricks. The BeoVision 4 103″ plasma TV incorporates technology that allows the huge TV to automatically calibrate colors and brightness: brightness is auto-calibrated every 120 hours, a nifty feature. The BeoVision line includes 50″, 60″ and now 103″ versions. B&O’s 103″ plasma TV is clearly aimed at the filthy rich because not only will that $136,000 price tag dent anyone’s wallet from the very beginning, the enormous amount of energy that this thing will be consuming for years to come will have a severe impact on the monthly electricity bill.
