KVH Rolls Out New ‘TracVision RV1’ Antenna
KVH Industries Inc. has introduced the TracVision RV1, a powerful and compact stabilized antenna that provides satellite TV reception in RVs and other vehicles.
According to a press release, the new system is designed for simple, trouble-free operation. Measuring 12 1/2 inches, TracVision RV1 enables reception of satellite TV from moving vehicles by using a motorized antenna to constantly track orbiting satellites. This tracking ability is coupled with fast acquisition capability to facilitate immediate reception of television programming, whether the vehicle is in motion or stationary. RV1’s single-cable design — just one cable instead of separate coax and power cables — addresses the need for fast and easy installation.
“The TracVision RV1 provides an unparalleled combination of high performance and ease of use for anyone wanting in-motion satellite TV programming,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH’s chief executive officer. “It doesn’t get any easier than a single-cable installation, so our customers can quickly start enjoying TV entertainment on the road.”
TracVision RV1 supports the same satellite television services delivered to homes across North America including DIRECTV, DISH Network and Bell TV, and will receive the high definition programming of DISH and Bell TV. The system also supports select services in Europe that are broadcast using Ku-band signals.
Other features include a streamlined IP-enabled TV-Hub delivering easy setup and operation, and a web-based user interface providing system access from any smartphone, tablet, smart TV, or computer.
