Flatpanels

New television now shown at CES,

The G line is now called G1, and come in the same sizes 55/65/77"

It comes with a new brighter EVO panel, for HDR content

 

The C1 line now comes in a 83" also but nothing new in the panel, only a bit better processor.

 

So not much new other than the brighter panel, and that is seems that the design is the same, so B&O do not need to change the Harmony, Eclipse and Contour to fit the new panels. 

Beovision Harmony 77" 2nd Gen, Beolab 5, Beolab 17, Beosound 1, Beoplay M3, Beoplay H6, Beoplay Earset, Beoliving Intelligence

Just to double check with the Harmony as I haven't really considered it until now, but am I right in assuming that it is primarily the speaker system and moving parts I am buying? Other than that, the screen can be replaced every few years with whatever LG bring out as the latest and greatest? Is that about right? Thanks, Simon.

Hello ,i am interrested by the point of choosing LG G1 instead LG GX for an Eclipse MK2 .

is there somebody have made the installation by bang olufsen? I ask to my dealer but he is in « holidays » ( in France all shops are Closer by Covid ) 

i read that LG G1 have a new panel which is more Bright and a new processor ..May be the differences between the two panels ( G1 vs GX) is very poor ?
 
i have the first Eclipse in 55 (2018) and if buy an other Eclipse it will be 65 pouces ..it will be Pitty not to have last panel ?

what do you think ?  

thanks a lot

 

ps sorry for my poor english i am in France

It'll be about right until they discontinue 65, 77 and 88 panels in favour of 67,79 and 91 (or such like) I suppose...

I've just broke the bank, maxed out the credit cards and smashed my piggy bank and gone for the Harmony and a G1 77".  Looking forward to it arriving!

They won’t for the forseeable future as the sizes are a direct result of how they cut the oled panels out of the main sheet of pixelsStick out tongue

Well. Once my 7-55 is done I might take the same route as you :-) Let’s see what my bank says at that time.

Looking forward to hear from your experience on this one - I really like the tv.

and actually the other new products as well.

As far as I understand it, B&O (or LG) has to make something so that it's software from the GX is available on the G1 (it was the case from G9 to GX, the B&O app wasn't available from day 1 on the GX even if it's the same app as on the G9).

So if you manage to buy this combo today, you will have limited functionality until the B&O app appears on the G1 app store.

Thanks a lot for your reply..if B&O works on this software we can wait from weeks to months..

you Say that if i buy this combo ( G1 & Eclipse 2 ) i can use it with small functionality what you mean ? On ly the panel G1 without the sound bar ( Eclipse) or i have to connect my Apple tv etc ..on the LG G1 hdmi and perhaps to use the apps ( Netflix.. ) i cannot do that with beoremote but with LG remote or apps?

Same for the harmony panels? We are still waiting for the 2021 panels to be compatible with the harmony? So, better wait a few more weeks/months to have the panel with the updated lg webos?

I bought the G1 77" to go with my Harmony, and today had the G1 screen professionally calibrated.

The guy who did it said the G1 processing and panel was a huge leap from the GX. He was very impressed with my G1 'out of the box' - and after proper calibration it's taken on a very natural, almost plasma-like tone - but with clarity, detail and blacks like you've never seen. 

I'm very happy. Smile

Sounds interesting. Would you share who calibrated (either here or DM) as I'd be interested.

I have a GX 65" but seriously considering moving up to the G1 77" as the white wall space is huge and the 65" isn't in proportion with the space.
