Boat Motion No Biggie For New KVH Antenna

KVH TracVision M1 antenna KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) has unveiled its new, ultra-compact TracVision M1 maritime antenna. Boaters will be able to enjoy high-quality satellite TV aboard their vessels. At only 7.5 lbs., and with a 12.5-inch antenna, the TracVision M1 is the world’s smallest and lightest maritime antenna that supports DIRECTV service throughout the continental United States and its coastal waters. The integrated 12V DIRECTV receiver/controller comes with the antenna and there is support for multiple mounting options on powerboats and sailboats, and the antenna’s single-cable installation design. The all-digital TracVision M1 is fully automatic, connecting boaters to more than 300 channels of standard-definition DIRECTV programming and satellite radio music. The antenna's motors are extremely quiet and still responsive enough to support rock solid in-motion tracking, even aboard small vessels, which present a far more challenging dynamic environment than larger boats. The system only requires a single cable for easy installation, even when an installation includes multiple receivers.
