New Loewe bild 3 series of OLED & LCD TVs launched
A mixed bag
Loewe’s new bild 3 family comes in 43, 49 and 55 inches and, says the manufacturer, caters for the current ‘downsizing trend,’ although we have to admit that particular fashion has passed us by so far.
The Loewe bild 3.55 OLED becomes the company’s entry-level model for OLED technology. The Loewe bild 3.43 and 3.49 are both LCD/LED models with a modern, contemporary design and various technical sophistications
The bild 3.55 OLED features a 4.9 mm ultra-flat OLED screen, which is thinner than most smartphones . In case you need reminding, OLED uses self-illuminating pixels, organic light-emitting diodes, so when they’re not active, they are true black. There’s Dolby Vision HDR built-in too which will be welcome news to many. The Loewe bild 3.49 and 3.43 are equipped with the latest LCD displays and, of course, feature Ultra HD displays, while all the models feature multiple installation options.
They can be hung on the wall, with the table stand on the sideboard or free-standing with the floor stand, available in the colours Graphite Grey or Light Grey. There’s an integrated front speaker with a room-filling, 2 x 40 watts of total music power. The optional digital audio link interface also makes it easy to connect Loewe sound systems.
The clearly structured user interface looks easy to understand with your choice of TV channels, recordings, apps or other external sources can be stored on the home screen. There are apps for online video libraries such as Amazon Video and Maxdome, but also YouTube and TIDAL are included and pre-installed.
The Loewe app allows you to operate your Loewe television with your smartphone or tablet. It also acts as a digital programme guide, allowing you to call up background information on your current viewing. And that's not all: thanks to the Loewe app, you can also watch unencrypted programmes live in your home network or schedule them remotely.
The Bild 3.43 is priced at 2,299 euros, the 3.49 is 2,699 euros while the Bild 3.55 OLED carries a ticket of 3,799 euros.
