Distribute sound and picture with BeoLink
If your television is equipped
with the optional System Module,
you can connect and set up a
BeoLink system to see pictures
and hear sound in link rooms.
Link connections
For example, you can connect
your television in the living room
to another video system or set of
speakers in another room,
thereby making it possible to
‘move’ the picture or sound to
other rooms.
If you have a BeoLink distribution
system installed, you can either
use your television in the main
room, such as a living room, or
in a link room, such as a study or
bedroom.
Under certain circumstances, it
may be necessary to enter
