Replacing the Beovision MX3500, the BeoVision MX4000 was equally as good looking and one whose cabinet contained a 21″ colour tube. The new TV was introduced as a result of better electronics and a different chassis. It accommodated a 2-way log-line speaker system.
Modules such as Picture-in-Picture, a Beosat LM satellite decoder and A2/NICAM stereo decoders could easily be accommodated within the less cluttered casing which made the television yet more desirable because of better functionality.
When the television was introduced in 1992 it used the two-way system of remote control when Beolink 5000 was well suited for the task of its daily use. However, in 1995, the software in BeoVision MX4000 was upgraded to use the newly-introduced Beo4 terminal which meant that the set lost its two-way communication facility. Its system of Teletext was upgraded at that time too. Also the TV had fitted a plexi-glass contrast screen; however, in 1999 it was replaced with a ‘normal’ glass contrast screen as with the rest of the MX range.
With people’s needs to attach more and more electrical products to televisions increasing each year, BeoVision MX4000 was given more connection points too including two SCART sockets, a S-VHS connection, Audio AUX link and two Power Link sockets. The user could also extend the set’s stereo sound by way of additional extension speakers if so desired.
Too large to be considered a portable set and too small to be a main room receiver, the BeoVision MX4000 nevertheless fulfilled an important niche in customers’ lives and the TV was a great success in its eleven year life. It was ideally placed in kitchen or in bedrooms when a variety of stands and supports were offered, including a wall mount with motorised base.
The BeoVision MX4000 was subsequently replaced by BeoVision MX4200 although BeoVision MX4002 was available during the life of the MX4000 for those who wished for a same-sized screen receiver with MasterLink capabilities.
