TracPhone(R) V3 is Industry's Leading Communications Product and TracVision(R) HD11 Tops the Entertainment Category for 2013.
 

 

The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) honored KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq:KVHI) with its prestigious product awards in two categories, communications and entertainment, at its annual convention in San Diego, California, last week. TracPhone V3 won the "Communications Product Award," and TracVision HD11 won the "Entertainment Product Award." The awards recognize manufacturers and individuals for their innovation and leadership in thmarine electronics field, according to NMEA, which is an industry group made up of more than 600 companies, including manufacturers, dealers, and boat builders. This is the 16th consecutive year that KVH has won a NMEA product award for its satellite communications or television systems.



TracPhone V3, which won the "Communications Product Award," is an extremely compact Ku-band VSAT antenna that provides broadband connectivity to boats as small as 30 feet. Designed for today's era of increasing reliance on the Internet and social media, TracPhone V3 enables boat owners to stay connected no matter where they may be cruising. The system utilizes KVH's worldwide mini-VSAT Broadband(SM) network, which is the only maritime network using spread spectrum technology (similar to that used in the high-powered 3G and 4G networks on land). This advanced technology makes it possible to offer broadband speeds at up to 2 Mbps from the TracPhone V3 onboard system, which has an antenna that is only 14.5 inches in diameter. KVH built  the mini-VSAT Broadband network to provide high-quality, affordable marine satellite phone and Internet service, and offers airtime rates as low as $0.49 per MB, and phone calls for only $0.49 per minute worldwide.


 

TracVision HD11, which won the "Entertainment Product Award," is the  world's first truly global satellite TV system with full HD support. Its advanced features include 4-axis stabilized tracking, which  ensures superior reception in all locations and conditions, and KVH's  TriAD(TM) technology, which enables simultaneous reception of Ka- and  Ku-band broadcasts. A digitally programmable Universal World LNB  provides full compatibility with nearly all direct-to-home standard  and HD satellite TV services without swapping LNBs or other hardware.  Simple to use, the TracVision HD11 system automatically tracks any of  the more than 100 satellites contained in its worldwide TV satellite
library. New satellites can be added to the library at any time creating a future-proof system.
