Inspired by the huge C Seed 201 outdoor TV designed by Porsche Design Group, like a character from the Transformers movies, the M1 4K dramatically rises from a hiding space in the floor, unfolding and transforming into an elegant, huge, 165-inch micro-LED screen.

This innovative system seems to come alive when activated, with the oak veneer wings opening and the 8K 88-inch screen rising to the viewing position. B&O uses a room-filling audio system that works with the amazing image delivered by the OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diodes) screen to deliver an optimal entertainment experience.

The OLED screen is capable of absolute black and extremely bright white for excellent contrast, which translates into very crisp picture quality, especially in a darkened room. In addition to movies, TV, or online content, it is also a great choice for games.
