IKEA prepares multimedia-fitted furniture

The famous Swedish furniture seller IKEA is currently working on a new type of furniture that integrates audio and video equipment.

The new high tech furniture is expected to debut on the market in the fall of 2012 and will include LED TV sets, Wi-Fi, stereo systems, DVD and Blu-Ray players.

The furniture will carry the UPPLEVA product name and will be first available in Sweden, Spain, France, Italy, Denmark, Portugal and Norway with worldwide availability expected in 2013.

Currently there’s no information on the tech specs of the integrated multimedia systems but the TV sets are expected to support Full HD resolution and should offer HDMI and USB ports as well as four different screen sizes. There’s also room for additional electronic equipment. The multimedia systems will be supplied by the TCL Multimedia company, which owns the TCL, ROWA, Thomson and RCA brands.

Base systems are expected to cost around 960 USD.
