KVH Industries, Inc. informs it is introducing the TracVision TV-series, a powerful family of fully stabilized marine satellite television antenna systems designed to provide superior performance, including HDTV, for worldwide satellite TV entertainment at sea.

TracVision TV1, TV3, TV5, and TV6 – the four systems that make up the TracVision TV-series – are unveiled at the Palm Beach International Boat Show in Palm Beach, Florida, and will remain on view in the KVH booth (830-831) through March 23, 2014.

KVH add that innovative features of the new TracVision TV-series include a streamlined IP-enabled TV-Hub delivering easy setup and operation, and a web-based user interface providing system access from any smartphone, tablet, smart TV, or computer. Offering a complete range of sizes, features, and options, the TracVision TV-series is designed to support DIRECTV, DISH Network and DISH HD, Bell TV, and nearly all Ku-band services around the globe so that everyone onboard can enjoy hundreds of digital TV and movie channels.

“The TracVision TV-series brings satellite TV at sea to an entirely new level, providing not only the great antenna performance that TracVision is known for, but also the ease of use that today’s yacht owners and ship operators expect,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH’s chief executive officer. “From your smartphone, you can easily complete the setup of the system and start enjoying TV entertainment. Plus, the single-cable design means the TracVision TV-series is ideal for retrofits, no matter what type of system a boat may have.”
