US-based KVH Industries has introduced the TracVision UHD7, a high-performance 60 marine satellite TV antenna designed to provide boat owners, charter yacht guests, and commercial vessel crews with access to ultra high-definition (UHD) and 4K programming from DIRECTV as well as regular HD programming from other leading satellite TV providers.

TracVision UHD7 features two-cable installation, fast satellite acquisition speeds, and system control via the TracVision TV-Hub web interface or convenient TracVision app.

For reliability in marine conditions, the antenna features multi-axis tracking and a rugged, lightweight design.

The antenna is designed to be as versatile as possible to satisfy demand for a variety of satellite TV programming services, including DIRECTV, DISH Network, and Bell. Using KVH’s patented TriADTM technology, it can provide DIRECTV programming including local channels and DVR support by receiving broadcasts from three DIRECTV satellites simultaneously. TracVision UHD7 is also designed for compatibility with DISH Network via a built-in KVH-exclusive DISH Pro Module for receiving DISH Network programming throughout U.S. waters, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. In addition, it is designed for compatibility with Bell service while travelling in Canadian waters.
