Satellite Tv

  • KVH Industries, Inc. introduced the TracVision TV8 maritime satellite TV antenna system. TracVision TV8 is designed to provide the tracking, reception and extended coverage area needed for yachts and merchant vessels calling on ports around the world. It is compatible with nearly all Ku-band services around the globe, and it also supports such services as DIRECTV, DISH Network and DISH HD, and Bell TV in North America, and TrueVisions, Astro, and Sky TV in the Asia-Pacific region.
    The 81 cm (32 in.) diameter TracVision TV8 enables yacht owners to enjoy satellite TV programming while on the water; the system also makes it possible for commercial maritime operators to ensure their crew has access to the recreational entertainment services that are now recommended by international regulations such as the Maritime Labor Convention (MLC) 2006.
    Features of the new system include the streamlined IP-enabled TV-Hub delivering easy setup and operation. For advanced functionality and performance, the TracVision TV8 includes single coaxial cable for power, data and video for easy installations and retrofits; high-performance tracking for crystal-clear television picture in heavy seas; IP-enabled antenna control unit with Ethernet connection and built-in Wi-Fi interface for access to system information from any Wi-Fi device; advanced inertial-based stabilized search for fast satellite acquisition; exclusive RingFire antenna technology for stronger signals, wider geographic coverage and better reception; DVB-S2 technology for compatibility with current and future Ku-band satellites; and IP AutoSwitch option for multiple receiver installations enabling simple automatic satellite switching on DISH Pro and DiSEqC compatible services.
