KVH Industries launches compact antenna for TV broadcasts at sea
KVH Industries [L1-107] has unveiled a new powerful and compact antenna that enables merchant ships to receive satellite TV broadcasts worldwide.

The TracVision TV8 maritime satellite TV antenna system is designed to provide the tracking, reception, and extended coverage area needed for merchant vessels calling on ports around the world.

TV8 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 compact dish is 81 cm in diameter.

“The TracVision TV8 has the top engineering characteristics our antenna systems are known for around the world,” said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH’s ceo. “With its advanced tracking and extended coverage area, it is an ideal system for a superyacht in the Mediterranean, a tanker ship in the Baltic, or any number of ships on the world’s oceans.”
