Exclusive Technology

  • Universal World LNB
    Thanks to our groundbreaking Universal World LNB, the TracVision HD11 is compatible with satellite TV services worldwide without requiring the laborious and costly process of swapping out hardware and updating software in each new region. Instead, the TracVision HD11’s digitally programmable LNB, the first of its kind in the maritime industry, reconfigures itself to track each of the more than 100 satellites contained in the integrated Worldwide TV satellite library.
  • TriAD Technology 
    KVH’s revolutionary TriAD technology – a breakthrough in antenna design – simultaneously receives broadcasts from Ka- and Ku-band satellites. These signals are concentrated by the precision tuned reflector and subreflector before reaching the unique tri-rod dielectric feed to provide a home television experience while you are at sea! 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 DIRECTV 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 HD11 receives DIRECTV’s program data constantly and sees all three satellites all of the time, just like home!
