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 roughest seas.
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!
