Sea Tel: Satellite TV Around The World
Sea Tel has been installing satellite TV systems on vessels for more than a decade. Several models are available, with configurations to suit the geographical operating area and customer needs. Both active and passive tracking methods are used to keep the "TV At Sea" system locked onto the satellite.
TV programs are received and processed by satellite receivers and distributed via a UHF/VHF system to various monitors and TV sets. Most installations are configured for use in a multi-standard role, so programs can be provided via satellite as the vessel moves around the world. Provision of a GPS interface helps ensure a high level of automatic operation of the TV At Sea system. For more information on Sea Tel Circle 126 on Reader Service Card
