About the Product
Barbizon frames are named after a group of landscape artists, led by Theodore Rousseau, who were working in the village of Barbizon. They were part of the French Realist movement and forerunners of the impressionists. They often use this style of frame to frame their paintings. In English we call it Barbican.
The EX700 series can deliver amazing 4K HDR pictures from streaming services and Ultra HD Blu-ray. A slim design, with metal frame and stand complements the great picture. Thanks to 'Switch Design' you can chose which way around the stand goes to work with your furniture or AV accessories.
