In short, the Bid S TV series is directly inspired by the Bild 7 available in the brand's catalog before its bankruptcy filing in 2019. Loewe's buyer, the Cypriot company Skytec Group (based in Slovakia and Poland) has in fact, it took over the assets and the historic factory of Kronach in Bavaria from the German manufacturer, which enabled it to offer very quickly, from the end of 2020 for the TV Loewe Blid S 77, the resumption of activity.
Loewe Bild S77, Oled EX panel
The new Oled TV range, made up of the Loewe Bild S, Loewe Bild V and Loewe Bild I series, is therefore the worthy descendant of the one still offered in 2019 by the brand. Of course, the televisions marketed today benefit from all the latest technologies, including the White Oled panel from LG Display. Thus, the Loewe Bild S 77 TV has an Oled EX panel. However, after discussion with a Loewe manager, we learned that the screen's peak light is limited to 800 nits to avoid any risk of burn-in, a concern always inherent in White Oled technology.
Loewe Bild S77, 120W sound section
For the rest, we find the technical characteristics of the TV Loewe Bild 7, starting with a sophisticated sound section, with a power of 120 W via six broadband loudspeakers and four passive radiators to reinforce the impact in the low frequencies. On the other hand, no Dolby Atmos compatibility in the program. Placed at the back of the TV, the audio section is partly revealed through a sound bar appearing at the bottom of the OLED panel when the TV is switched on. The latter, motorized, then rises slightly and silently. Conversely, when switching off, the screen descends majestically to leave only the Oled panel visible. Splendid (see photo below). Another detail, all the cables are hidden behind the TV under a fabric cover with the most beautiful effect.
