Intellian Technologies announced the upcoming release of two compact 33 inch (83 cm), 3-axis stabilized TV antennas. Shipping in March 2012, the Intellian t80 and t80W are specifically designed for use on yachts and commercial vessels requiring a compact antenna size with global satellite TV service reception.
The Intellian t80 antennas use a fully stabilized 3-axis platform, as well as a fourth axis for LNB auto-skew control, ensuring seamless operation in all regions. Multiple HD receivers can be connected to the system as standard, providing a truly hands off global coverage depending on the regions visited. Built-in as standard an internal GPS combined with Intellian’s patented Wide Range Search (WRS) provides the fastest satellite acquisition possible.
The t80 antennas have a built-in DVB-S2 decoder to provide HD channels where available. For uninterrupted viewing of HD DIRECTV programming, an upgrade kit will be provided free of charge to owners when it becomes available. The upgrade of the antenna will allow simultaneous reception of Ku-band and Ka-band satellites providing uninterrupted viewing.
The t80 antenna has a broad elevation range, from -10° to +110°, enabling operation in all conditions and the cross level axis ensures uninterrupted viewing even when the antenna is operating near the equator. At 128 lbs (58kg), the t80 antenna is one of the lightest and strongest in this class of antenna. The internal shock absorption system, component manufacturing standards and ground breaking engineering make this antenna a show stopping performer for vessels that require stability and reliability.
