KVH ANTENNAE WIN NMEA AWARDS

Tuesday, October 2, 2018 

KVH Industries says that the top US marine electronics professionals have honoured two of its marine antenna systems for product excellence.

 

KVH’s TracPhone V7-HTS received the National Marine Electronics Association’s (NMEA) 2018 Product of Excellence Award in the satellite communications antenna category, while the TracVision TV3 received the 2018 Product of Excellence Award in the satellite TV antenna category.
This is the 21st consecutive year that KVH has achieved the NMEA distinction for its TracVision satellite television antenna systems and the 16th time that KVH’s TracPhone satellite communications antenna systems have been recognised.
The NMEA Product of Excellence Awards are presented annually to recognize design, performance, and reliability in marine electronics products. The winners are selected by a vote of the members of NMEA, an industry group made up of more than 600 companies, including manufacturers, dealers, and boat builders.
“Receiving the NMEA awards is an honor for us, and we thank the members of NMEA for their consideration,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH chief executive officer. “The fact that the voting is done by electronics dealers who work with our TracVision and TracPhone systems every day makes these awards even more meaningful to us.”
KVH’s TracPhone V7-HTS is a 60cm (24in) diameter Ku-band VSAT antenna designed to consistently deliver data speeds as fast as 10 Mbps download/3 Mbps upload to boats worldwide. The system operates via KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network, which late last year began using the IntelsatOne Flex platform, a global managed service designed to optimise bandwidth allocations and provide flexible coverage where it is needed. The TracPhone V7-HTS meets an increasing demand for broadband connectivity at sea and features a dual-channel configuration that delivers a free, lower-speed unlimited-use data channel that runs at the same time as the high-speed data channel.
The TracVision TV3 is an ultra-compact marine satellite TV system that makes it possible fto receive high-definition television programming at sea. The 37cm (14.5in) diameter system includes an IP-enabled TV-Hub for easy setup and operation and makes it possible to access system information from a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
