TracVision Satellite Antenna System Honored for Superior Design and Quality Craftsmanship
MIDDLETOWN, RI – May 13, 2005 – Houseboating Adventures Magazine has selected KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) as a recipient of the 2005 Ultimate Accessory Award for the TracVision® C3 satellite TV antenna system. Highlighted in the May issue of the magazine, the TracVision C3 was honored for its “superior design and innovations, in addition to its quality craftsmanship,” according to the magazine. TracVision C3 allows boaters to enjoy hundreds of channels of live satellite TV virtually anywhere in and around North America.
“The KVH TracVision C3 is the ultimate marine satellite TV antenna for houseboaters,” said Michael McDonald-Low, publisher and senior editor of Houseboating Adventures Magazine. “Self-contained, easily installed, the TracVision C3 is also the lowest profile marine antenna on the market.”
“We are gratified that Houseboating Adventures Magazine has chosen to recognize TracVision as an ‘ultimate accessory’ for houseboat owners,” said Ian Palmer, executive vice president of satellite sales for KVH. “People want satellite television for a combination of everything - news, entertainment, weather - just to stay in touch. TracVision satellite antenna systems are the ideal solution for houseboat owners, allowing them the same comforts they enjoy at home and in the office while they are vacationing on their houseboats.”
Houseboats are becoming an increasingly popular vacation alternative for families who want to spend quality time together without the hassle of resorts and reservations. But even while on vacation, houseboaters want to stay connected, and satellite TV helps them do just that.
The economical and completely self-contained TracVision C3 is KVH’s lowest-profile marine satellite TV system with integrated Digital Video Broadcast (DVB®) technology. Ideal for houseboats, hardtops, and convertibles, the system automatically identifies, acquires, and tracks satellite signals from a range of DIRECTV®, DISH Network™, and other DVB-compatible satellites.
KVH’s satellite TV antennas are so well received that they have won the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) award for “Best Satellite TV Product” for the past seven years in a row. In addition to the TracVision C3, KVH offers a complete line of TracVision antenna systems for the RV, boat, and automotive markets.
