KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) and its TracVision ® family of satellite TV products are the choice of the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) for the 14th consecutive year. The Company’s TracVision M1, the world’s smallest maritime satellite TV antenna, was recently honored with its third consecutive “Industry Award” for best marine entertainment product – the product received this honor after its introduction in 2009 and again in 2010. Each year, NMEA members vote for their favorite products in a range of categories, and the product that receives the most votes in a given category is honored with that year’s Industry Award. These awards have become a trusted symbol of outstanding quality throughout the marine electronics industry.
Marine electronics technicians continue to bestow this honor on TracVision M1 for its ease of installation and because it opened up a completely new market for maritime satellite TV. Weighing just 7.5 lbs., the in-motion TracVision M1 is an all-in-one solution for DIRECTV ® on boats, and includes the compact antenna and exclusive 12V DIRECTV receiver, making installation and adding live satellite TV to even small boats simple. Once it’s on the boat, the TracVision M1 offers outstanding in-motion reception, tracking, and performance typically associated with larger antennas, while fitting the sleek exterior design of vessels as small as 20 feet. The TracVision M1’s small size, easy setup, Whisper DriveTM motor technology, and versatile mounting options mean that installation can be customized to meet the needs of just about any boater, on any vessel.
