KVH Unveils Next-Generation Satellite TV Antenna at London International Boat Show

Breakthrough TracVision G8 Offers Powerful 82 cm Carbon Fiber Antenna in

Compact Dome More than 35% Smaller than Competition

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Jan. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI), the leading manufacturer of marine satellite TV antennas, introduced the newest member of its TracVision product line -- the TracVision G8 -- at the 2003 London International Boat Show today. TracVision G8's breakthrough mechanical design permits KVH to house a next-generation, 82 cm antenna within a dome more than 35% smaller than other competing satellite TV antennas of similar reception strength. Equipped with automatic skew control, a carbon fiber antenna, fiber optic gyro (FOG) stabilization, a user- friendly interface, high-speed Internet compatibility, and integrated Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) tracking, TracVision G8 is the world's most advanced marine satellite TV antenna in its size.

"The introduction of TracVision G8 as KVH's flagship product consolidates our position as the premier supplier of maritime satellite TV systems, enabling us to support larger yachts and commercial vessels while rounding out a product portfolio that already offers the market share-leading 45 cm and 60 cm antennas for recreational vessels," explained Ian Palmer, KVH vice president of satellite sales. "The 82 cm TracVision G8 is a perfect complement to KVH's family of Tracphone global satellite communications systems. KVH is the only company offering matched domes that contain a complete communications and entertainment solution for high-end leisure and commercial vessels."

TracVision G8 incorporates a number of major advances in marine satellite antenna design, including a remarkable new mechanical design and carbon fiber antenna reflector. The result is an antenna that is lightweight, extremely robust, and has an even more efficient reflector. Greater efficiency translates into higher signal strength and increased coverage range. While offering greater efficiency, TracVision G8's 82 cm antenna is also contained in a substantially smaller dome -- 87 cm -- while competing 80 cm antennas require a 100 cm dome to contain the system.

TracVision G8 also uses KVH's own precision fiber optic gyros to provide outstanding open-loop tracking, which will provide superior pointing accuracy and faster reacquisition of the satellite should the signal be lost. The precision open-loop tracking also enables TracVision G8 to remain locked onto the satellite while downloading revised satellite data, such as transponder codes and frequencies. TracVision G8 can then dynamically update its own antenna software with this data to ensure that the antenna is always using current information. This valuable feature will eliminate the need for a qualified technician to update satellite data manually every time a satellite service provider adjusts its satellite codes.

Thanks to its 82 cm antenna and fully automatic skew control design, TracVision G8 is ideal for vessels cruising offshore as well as in geographic regions with weaker satellite TV signals. The antenna's integrated DVB technology allows it to positively identify and be compatible with all modern digital TV satellites. These include European services, such as Astra, Hotbird, Hispasat, Nilesat, Arabsat, Sirius, and Thor, as well as the DIRECTV(R), DISH Network(TM), and ExpressVu services in North and Latin America. Comprehensive control of the system is made possible through an easy- to-use plain language control unit.

Adding to TracVision G8's versatility is its compatibility with KVH's TracNet 2.0 Mobile High-speed Internet System. As a result, vessels equipped with TracVision G8 and TracNet 2.0 can stay connected to the World Wide Web and e-mail via broadband Internet-via-Satellite services in both Europe and North America. Users can access news, financial information, up-to-date weather and nautical charts, corporate networks, and e-mail at speeds reaching 400 Kbps in North America and 512 Kbps in European waters.

You're welcome cmg,

I keep it up to date just for that purpose - so people can easily do their own DD or go back and find anything later for reference. The topic header has many of the same links, but is now out of date, but after next week's news I'll contact the thread owner and ask him to bring it up to date.

KVH to Introduce Live Satellite TV in Cars at 2003 Consumer Electronics Show

Revolutionary TracVision(R) Ultra-low Profile Antenna Provides 300+ Channels

of Digital Satellite TV to Backseat Video Systems

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Family vacations and business trips will never be the same again as KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI) will unveil its revolutionary new ultra-low profile TracVision A5 in-motion satellite TV antenna on January 9, 2003, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 4-1/2 inch high TracVision in-motion satellite TV system uses breakthrough phased array antenna technology to make satellite TV a reality for SUVs, mini-vans, and luxury automobiles equipped with backseat entertainment systems.

TracVision brings together two of the hottest consumer entertainment products -- digital satellite TV service and backseat entertainment systems. Now, travelers throughout the continental United States will be able to leave the DVDs and videos at home and instead enjoy 300+ channels of DIRECTV(R) satellite TV entertainment, news, sports, movies, and business updates while cruising along the road. In addition, DIRECTV subscribers also receive 50+ channels of commercial-free music at no additional cost, providing the music you want to listen to wherever you travel. TracVision will also be expandable in the future to provide access to high-speed Internet via satellite. Members of the media and interested parties are invited to see the exciting TracVision system for themselves at Booth #4255 in the CES Mobile Electronics Pavilion, where company representatives will be on hand to answer questions.

The product of two years of research and development, KVH's TracVision A5 has reached the market just as the backseat video entertainment market is exploding. More than 1 million backseat entertainment systems were sold in 2002 and that number is expected to grow in 2003. Almost every 2002 model SUV and mini-van offered these systems as options and the uptake has been tremendous, with 96% of Nissan Quests, 31% of Ford Expeditions, and 30% of Ford Windstars shipping with video systems, according to J.D. Power and Associates. Already, almost 50% of full-size SUV owners report that they plan to buy video systems in their next vehicle. However, until now the only video content available to the passengers of these vehicles was pre-recorded on videotapes and DVDs, despite the fact that consumers have shown a clear preference for live programming, both at home and in their vehicles. KVH and the TracVision antenna are ready to change all that. Now, the same premier satellite TV service that more than 18 million people enjoy at home will be available to the passengers of vehicles throughout the United States.

"This remarkable new system clearly suits the growing demand for digital entertainment in automobiles and builds on a decade of KVH innovation and leadership in the mobile satellite industry," said Jim Dodez, KVH vice president of marketing. "Already, KVH has equipped tens of thousands of boats, recreational vehicles, and motorcoaches with in-motion satellite TV systems. The expansion of video entertainment in automobiles has created a tremendous new market and only KVH Industries is in the position to meet the demand for live video content."

Complete details and photos of the TracVision system will be released on January 9, 2003, the first day of CES 2003. KVH Industries and the TracVision mobile satellite TV system will be located in Booth #4255 in the Mobile Electronics Pavilion (North Hall #4).
