While some of KVH's TracVision systems are designed specifically for use with U.S. satellite TV services only, KVH's TracVision R4 and R5 antennas for vehicles and most of KVH's TracVision M-series antennas for boats are compatible with regional Ku-band satellite TV services around the globe. KVH TracVision systems are the perfect choice when you want to enjoy your favorite entertainment, including HDTV, on the move.
Thanks to TracVision's built-in Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) compatibility, our antennas are able to work with virtually any satellite broadcasting in the DVB-S encoding, which is the current standard among many satellite providers outside North America. What does this mean to you as a TracVision owner? It's simple - as long as we can track a compatible satellite that is using DVB-S encoding,1 you have the option to watch both standard-definition and high-definition programming when available and without any hardware changes to your antenna. All you need is an HD-compatible TV, receiver, and a subscription to the appropriate service.
