TracVision M1, a New In-motion Satellite TV System

KVH Industries, a provider of in-motion satellite TV and communication systems, has released the new TracVision M1 at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. KVH’s new, ultra-compact 12.5" TracVision M1 antenna lets boat owners enjoy hundreds of channels of high-quality satellite TV programming from DIRECTV while at the dock, sailing, or cruising around the continental U.S. and coastal waters.

Weighing close to 7.5 pounds, the in-motion TracVision M1 offers the tracking and in-motion performance one might expect from a larger antenna, while fitting the sleek exterior design of vessels as small as 20 feet. TracVision M1’s small size, easy setup, ultra-quiet motors, and versatile mounting options allow convenient installation. This new, all-digital device is fully automatic, connecting boaters to more than 300 channels of standard-definition DIRECTV programming and satellite radio music. The system also requires only a single cable for easy installation, even when an installation includes multiple receivers.

KVH innovation repeatedly changes what is possible when it comes to satellite TV at sea. For years, industry wisdom held that you needed at least an 18" diameter antenna to enjoy satellite TV. Two years ago, KVH shattered that myth with our 14" TracVision M3 antenna. Now, they've set a new standard for compact design with their 12.5" TracVision M1 antenna. KVH's exclusive, high-efficiency RingFire(TM) technology enables the TracVision M1 to provide the high signal gain no competing product in this antenna class can match. The new product offers all the features boaters want such as DIRECTV programming, a lightweight and rugged antenna, easy installation, crystal-clear reception, and the reliability of KVH's products and service.

KVH says its mission is to connect mobile customers with the same digital television entertainment, communications, and Internet services that they enjoy in their home and offices.
