This is satellite TV at sea like you’ve never seen before – KVH’s new 24" TracVision® HD7 antenna is a breakthrough in maritime satellite TV design, bringing high-definition programming from DIRECTV® to your boat or yacht the same way you enjoy it at home. The rugged TracVision HD7 simultaneously tracks DIRECTV’s Ka- and Ku-band satellites enabling use of Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), and offers the best tracking ever from KVH!

Using KVH’s exclusive TriAD™ technology, the TracVision HD7 antenna can receive broadcasts from three DIRECTV satellites at once! These signals are concentrated by the tuned subreflector before reaching KVH’s unique tri-rod dielectric feed, resulting in outstanding reception even as you cruise offshore.

This technology makes it possible for you and your guests to not only watch any channel but also have full DVR support! Now everyone can watch what they want, on whatever TV they want, whenever they want – a great bonus for everyone onboard! Plus, setup and maintenance are a snap with KVH’s new IP-enabled antenna control unit and TracVision iPhone® app.

Add the TracVision HD7’s optional Tri-Americas® LNB and your boat or yacht can travel throughout the Americas and switch seamlessly between services without  missing a beat!

FAQ

A:
Empty domes are available should you wish to have a matching dome installation on your boat. Also, KVH's TracPhone domes are identical to their TracVision counterparts, enabling you to have a balanced, dual-dome installation that offers satellite TV and satellite communications. Click here to find a KVH dealer near you for information and pricing.
A:

Absolutely. With the addition of the dedicated Crew Calling Gateway, you equip your mini-VSAT Broadband system with a separate telephone line exclusively for crew and passenger use. Passengers and your crew will be able to place calls anywhere in the world using the Crew Calling phone while crew usage is tracked separately from your standard usage for easy service management and tracking.

Offering access to this service is simple:

  • Purchase $25 or $100 mini-VSAT Broadband Crew Calling cards for resale, or
  • Minimize your administrative needs and allow the crew or your charter guests to use the crew calling phone to buy minutes directly from KVH Industries using their credit card.

Visit the crew calling page for complete details.

A:
No. All TracVision antennas can support multiple video screens and multiple receivers so each TV screen can show a different channel.
A:
Yes, a single TracVision antenna can support multiple video screens. As with satellite TV in your house, if you have a single receiver, all of the TV screens will show the same programming. However, if you install multiple receivers, each video screen can watch a different channel simultaneously. All TracVision antennas support both configurations, however, some models require additional hardware.

Exclusive Technology

See what our customers are saying about the TracVision HD7

TriAD Technology1
KVH’s revolutionary TriAD technology – a breakthrough in compact antenna design – simultaneously receives broadcasts from three separate DIRECTV satellites. These signals are concentrated by the sculpted reflector and tuned subreflector before reaching the unique tri-rod dielectric feed. And when you’re underway, the multi-axis dynamic tracking stays locked on even in the roughest seas.

This means every TV on board can be tuned to any channel on any of the three satellites, with no waiting for satellite switching or blank screens. Plus, your receivers won’t lock up, reboot, or perform lengthy satellite searches unexpectedly due to expired program guides or receivers looking for the wrong satellite because, unlike other systems, the advanced TracVision HD7 receives DIRECTV’s program data constantly and sees all three satellites all of the time!

Testimonials

What our customers are saying...

"I was confident in purchasing one of the first units of the TracVision HD7 for Sensation because I’ve never experienced anything but the best quality when using KVH products. The HD7’s size is perfect for my boat. It works great during our travels in Southern Florida, the Bahamas, and the Gulf of Mexico and is much better than our SeaTel unit."

- Dr. William Smith,
Owner of Sensation,
New Orleans, LA
