This is satellite TV at sea like you’ve never seen before – KVH’s new 24"
TracVision® HD7 antenna is a breakthrough in maritime satellite TV design,
bringing high-definition programming from DIRECTV® to your boat or yacht the
same way you enjoy it at home. The rugged TracVision HD7 simultaneously tracks
DIRECTV’s Ka- and Ku-band satellites enabling use of Digital Video Recorders (DVRs),
and offers the best tracking ever from KVH!
Using KVH’s exclusive TriAD™ technology, the TracVision HD7 antenna can
receive broadcasts from three DIRECTV satellites at once! These signals are
concentrated by the tuned subreflector before reaching KVH’s unique tri-rod
dielectric feed, resulting in outstanding reception even as you cruise offshore.
This technology makes it possible for you and your guests to not only watch
any channel but also have full DVR support! Now everyone can watch what they
want, on whatever TV they want, whenever they want – a great bonus for everyone
onboard! Plus, setup and maintenance are a snap with KVH’s new IP-enabled
antenna control unit and TracVision iPhone® app.
Add the TracVision HD7’s optional Tri-Americas®
LNB and your boat or yacht can travel throughout the Americas and switch
seamlessly between services without missing a beat!
KVH’s revolutionary TriAD technology – a breakthrough in compact antenna
design – simultaneously receives broadcasts from three separate DIRECTV
satellites. These signals are concentrated by the sculpted reflector and tuned
subreflector before reaching the unique tri-rod dielectric feed. And when
you’re underway, the multi-axis dynamic tracking stays locked on even in the
This means every TV on board can be tuned to any channel on any of the
three satellites, with no waiting for satellite switching or blank screens.
Plus, your receivers won’t lock up, reboot, or perform lengthy satellite
searches unexpectedly due to expired program guides or receivers looking for
the wrong satellite because, unlike other systems, the advanced TracVision HD7
receives DIRECTV’s program data constantly and sees all three satellites all
of the time!
