KVH Introduces New High-speed Internet-capable Satellite TV Antenna for Vehicles; TracVision S3 is Ideal for Use with DISH 500 Service and KVH TracNet High-speed Internet.

Business/Technology Editors


Travelers parked for the evening in their RVs and campers will never look at satellite TV or high-speed Internet access quite the same way again following the introduction of the TracVision(R) S3 satellite TV antenna from KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI). With its integrated Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) technology and automatic satellite acquisition, the TracVision S3 makes "pop-up" style satellite antennas obsolete. Ideal for use aboard parked RVs, trucks, and motorcoaches, the system automatically identifies and acquires satellite signals from a range of DIRECTV(R) and DVB-compatible satellites, including the multi-satellite DISH 500 service. In addition, the TracVision S3 is fully compatible with KVH's TracNet(TM) Mobile Internet Server and exclusive mobile DirecPC(R) high-speed Internet service.

"With a growing number of satellite TV options as well as the launch of KVH's exclusive high-speed mobile Internet service, vehicle-mounted satellite antennas need to have the ability to seek out, identify, and lock onto the correct satellite from potentially hundreds of targets in orbit," explained Ian Palmer, vice president of satellite sales. "KVH pioneered the solution to this challenge when we introduced our DVB-compatible TracVision L3 in-motion antenna. Now, we've applied that same technology to our newest automatic domed system, the TracVision S3. Simply park the vehicle and turn on the antenna - TracVision S3 will do the rest without requiring you to crank up the antenna or laboriously tune in the satellite signal. And with its pre-programmed satellite library, switching from one satellite to another is a simple matter, an invaluable convenience if you subscribe to a satellite TV service that uses multiple satellites to broadcast its programming, such as the popular DISH 500."

The TracVision S3 offers a wide range of features, including:
- A stylish, low-profile antenna dome that measures just 14.5" (37 cm) high.

- Compatibility with high-powered DVB satellite TV services, including the
multi-satellite DISH 500 service.

- Reception of more than 300 channels of digital programming, including premium
satellite television, commercial-free music, HDTV, and local stations.

- Compatibility with KVH TracNet Mobile Internet Server and mobile DirecPC
high-speed Internet service (available exclusively from KVH).

- A preloaded satellite library of popular North American and European services
is conveniently selectable via PC or the KVH TV/SAT Switch.

- A flush-mount design for easy installation and upgrade to in-motion tracking.
