Watching the video, that's a little absurd to me.

In its resting state, it looks a bit silly (again, to me)

Not an obvious candidate for the wall mounting fans amongst us.

Earle:

Thinking about what PeterBOBP mentioned....

Take a closer look at the panels,... they are spread further apart as you move away from the separation of the aluminium frames.

Curious indeed.

The graphic may not indicate movement at all, but may just indicate the permanent spacing of the panels.

HOWEVER, I'd bet that the semi-circle lines in the graphic are what is indicative of whatever movement is planned.

 

**Edited to include my interpretation of what I'm trying to get at.

your prediction was spot on!

I wonder how much of the moving part is speaker - all of it, just the top part? 

I doubt it's all of it, as that would be a monstrous sound in theory.

Also, it does not appear to have an option to rotate the screen, at least from what I can see.

BeoVision Avant55 Mk1; Theatre with BeoSystem4; BeoSound2; BeoPlayA9; BeoPlayA6; BeoPlayM5; BeoPlayE6; BeoPlayH3 ANC

..and it all started 15 years ago with a pair of B&O A8 Earphones...

That stand doesn't appear to be rotatable, no....

I believe that model is a 77 inch, which is what it being launched first.

My UK dealer says it will be around 20 grand (GBP).

To me too:
- Closed, the TV is hidden, but a weird, useless object is still on display.
- Open, be ready to wipe each time the frame of dust were the screen is not protected by the grids in closed state. 

I can't really see the point of that design…

77 inch. So difficult to appreciate the scale of the thing from the video. At that size there is perhaps less need for rotation, and sideways viewing of the latest screens is pretty good compared with the early LCDs where you had to view more or less straight on.

But is it a work of art when switched off? I'm not so sure. It's certainly an interesting mobile piece of art when actually switching on or off.

That was my thought too.....why?

I guess as a niche piece of design, the concept and execution is ok.

But much like the Edge.....why? i.e. usable in pretty limited circumstances.

I know companies must move forward etc, but surely all we needed was a BV11/14 design with an OLED panel.

There is, I guess, a bit more to look at with this vs the Eclipse...so in a sense more interesting.

But beautiful, I dont think so.

When unfolded it is truly massive.

It's certainly not as easy to dismiss than the Eclipse, which is either good or bad depending on what people want.

And I'm pretty sure some will like the motion and drama of it, and I can sympathise to a degree.

And of course, in real life it may appear not quite so imposing, but we'll have to wait until August for that.

And yes, at 77 inches, rotating isn't essential - my 65 (BV12) is flat wall mounted, no need for rotation.....

A clever piece of engineering,but when it’s closed I feel it needs the moving elements to be the width of the screen so that it is actually hiding a good portion of it..seems very topsy turvy with the panels much narrower but taller...more like  someone is attempting to cover up the tv but hasn’t got anything big enough to do so.

If using it as a sound centre in the closed position you have also lost any sense of stereo separation.

How can you be sure - have you already heard it?

Will the sound part even work when closed?

I suspect not.
