KVH Named 2007 Communications Company of the Year for Houseboats


Houseboating Adventures Magazine Honors KVH with its 2007 DIGI Award

MIDDLETOWN, RI – October 19, 2007 – Houseboats and all their amenities offer a relaxing, scenic lifestyle, whether you just want to get away for a weekend vacation, enjoy a home away from home, or make life on the water your primary residence. These unique vessels allow their passengers to enjoy the feeling of a vacation while maintaining all the privacy and amenities of home, including satellite TV and crystal-clear telephone. With its award-winning TracVision® satellite TV antennas and TracPhone® satellite communications systems, KVH Industries, Inc., has proved itself an invaluable part of making life on the water feel like home. Recognizing the benefits KVH offers to houseboaters, Houseboating Adventures, a leading magazine for houseboaters and boating enthusiasts, awarded KVH its 2007 DIGI Award “Communications Company of the Year.”

“We are extremely proud of being named Houseboating Adventures’ Communications Company of the Year, and receiving the 2007 DIGI Award,” says Bob Cooper, KVH’s national sales manager. “As the leader in mobile satellite communications, KVH is committed to helping consumers join the conveniences they enjoy on land with their passion for life on the water. That’s what makes it such an honor to receive an award from such a distinguished publication, alongside some of our most respected peers in other areas of the houseboating industry.”

“It is important to recognize that without their leadership, without their performance setting standards, without their customer service, without their innovative products and vision, houseboating could have become just another cottage industry swept aside by the future,” said Michael McDonald-Low, managing editor of Houseboating Adventures, referring to the eight companies honored with 2007 DIGI Awards in separate categories.

KVH is committed to offering the best and most reliable satellite communications systems in the industry, as evidenced by its products, which feature enhanced performance, new capabilities and greater convenience. Just a few months ago, KVH unveiled two new families of mobile satellite TV systems, the 12" high TracVision® SlimLine antennas and the rugged maritime TracVision M-series. In addition to being some of the most compact and reliable systems in the satellite communications industry, these systems feature a new, exclusive component, the KVH HDTV Tri-Sat AutoSwitch™, that allows users to switch between programs on up to three separate DIRECTV satellites just by changing the channel with the remote control. This innovation is a big step in closing the gap between a home theater experience and that of watching television on a boat, providing the convenience that today’s savvy houseboating enthusiasts crave.
