SIMRAD Launches Satellite TV System

Tuesday, June 10, 2003
Simrad, a provider of marine electronics, has launched a new satellite TV system for use on vessels of all sizes. The TV45, TV46 and TV60 antennas offer unparalleled picture quality even in the harshest of conditions. The three different sized deck mounted domes available are able to receive all major television channels almost anywhere on water. Whether at berth in the marina or hundreds of miles from land, seafarers can get crystal clear reception on channels ranging from MTV and HBO to CNN and the BBC. In fact, all three antennas in the TV system are as powerful and functional as home satellite TV systems. Electronic Beam Forming (EBF) technology makes it possible for the Simrad TV antennas to offer interference free pictures. Superlative tracking speeds and accuracy are derived from an 80 times per second update received directly from the target satellite, meaning antenna motion pre-empts picture deterioration. Unlike many other systems available, no external compass is needed due to the satellite tracking abilities of EBF. The antenna is also cable free internally. Other units need to rewind every few turns in order to free cable, which can negate reception quality. With no need to free the cable, Simrad TV antennas offer a clearer picture at all times.
