Friday, September 07, 2012

Thrane & Thrane introduces new maritime satellite TV antenna – 'SAILOR 100 Satellite TV'.

The occasion of the Hamburg SMM 2012 Expo was chosen by Thrane & Thrane to launch their new product which they say introduces a new state of the art maritime Satellite TV, which offers a number of innovations including multi-polarisation and a programmable LNB to ensure high quality worldwide TV reception.

The SAILOR 100 Satellite TV is designed, developed and manufactured in-house by Thrane & Thrane’s engineers and is the most advanced, rugged and reliable satellite TV antenna ever built. Further innovations include single cable installation, which is a truly unique feature in the maritime satellite TV market, making installations easier and considerably more cost effective.

The system is designed specifically to meet the demands of maritime professionals, even in the toughest maritime environments. With a 103 cm dish and advanced 3 axis structure, the antenna is the perfect compromise between size and performance. It also features an advanced rotary joint, eliminating the need for cable unwrap when the vessel turns.

SAILOR 100 Satellite TV is designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. It comes as standard with a powerful touch screen terminal to handle all setup, service and management, and features an advanced but intuitive Graphical User Interface.

Based on the highly-regarded SAILOR 900 VSAT platform, SAILOR 100 Satellite TV offers superior performance because it is designed and tested solely for the maritime environment. Rigorous in-house and at-sea testing ensures that the antenna lives up to the high standards of quality and reliability users have come to expect from all SAILOR equipment.
