Intellian launched the i6D Ku-band TVRO antenna with integrated dual feed horn, enabling vessels to change channel without manually switching between the Astra 1 and Astra 3 satellites, providing reception in Europe.

The dual feed horn enables access from the two satellites as the i6D watches the Astra 1 and Astra 3 satellites simultaneously and has multiple receivers that can watch different channels, so the user can switch channels and immediately view the program selected without delay. The system is compatible with SD and HD TV.

This new 60cm antenna is the latest development of the proven 2-Axis i6 antenna and has been developed especially for vessels travelling on inland waterways, wishing to subscribe to services from CanalDigitaal in the Netherlands, Kabel Deutschland, Sky Germany, TéléSAT in Belgium and TV Vlaanderen Digitaal, also in Belgium.

The Intellian developed Wide Range Search (WRS) algorithm locks onto a signal and the Dynamic Beam Tilting keeps strength at all times, even when the vessel is cruising. The Automatic Skew Control and in-built GPS system help provide a signal and maximize this signal strength, for accuracy and easy hands-off performance. The antenna has a broad elevation range of +5° to +90° for reliable reception. The antenna weighs just 22kg and installs with a single cable that connects the antenna with the ACU.
