Intellian has launched the new dual-band 3-axis s80HD WorldView TVRO antenna, featuring LNB technology. The 83cm dish Intellian s80HD WorldView antenna simultaneously receives two Ka-band satellite signals and one Ku-band signal for DIRECTV North American programming, enabling all channels to be watched simultaneously. Additionally, the antenna incorporates Intellian’s first dual-band LNB combined with WorldView. The Intellian Ku-/Ka- band WorldView Trio LNB (Low Noise Block-Down Converter) with triple feed horn enables HD and SD TV to be watched anywhere in the world, particularly suited for larger yachts.

This antenna enables user to access HD TV in the Mediterranean as well as when travelling to and from the Caribbean as well as in North America. The user simply selects a satellite television provider and connects to a satellite receiver, allowing the WorldView Trio LNB to automatically switch frequency depending on the region the antenna is operating in. There is no requirement to purchase multiple LNB modules, reconfigure complex systems and manually change an LNB inside the antenna dome each time the vessel crosses into different satellite service region.

The pre-programmed Global Satellite Library makes it possible for the user to select their preferred TV satellite service whilst travelling from region to region. It also provides information on location-based satellite availability. An Intellian App is available for download to enable users to access their library and operate their antenna from an iPhone, iPad or their chosen device.

The Intellian Multi-Switch module is included in the system and provides simple connection to different satellite receivers, enabling TV viewing on multiple TV screens. The integrated SWM (Single Wire Multiswitch) technology makes installations a lot simpler on larger yachts with multiple TVs.
