Intellian Announces Industry's First Marine-Grade Dual Band DIRECTV HDTV Antenna
Marine Satellite Technology Leader Delivers All DIRECTV Programming in One Dome
Irvine, Calif. - Intellian Technologies, the world's technological leader in marine satellite antennas, announced today the latest addition to its revolutionary line of antennas, the d-Series High Definition (HD) TV systems. Incorporating a radically new, patent-pending design, the d-Series are the only marine-grade antennas that can receive signals from all DIRECTV satellites. With a small size and very light weight, the d4 and d6 d-Series antennas are suitable for smaller boats through large yacht, and can be installed on bimini/buggy top frames or even small hard/arch tops. The Intellian d-Series HDTV systems are the only choice for DIRECTV subscribers who want to see all available HDTV and sports package programming while underway on the water.
Marking a new era in marine satellite antenna technology, the Intellian d4 and d6 single-dome solutions are the next logical step in at-sea television-viewing convenience. Incorporating Intellian Technologies' sophisticated, patented Wide Range Search (WRS) algorithm to search, find and hold satellite signals and Dynamic Beam Tilting (DBT) technology to ensure clear, interruption-free program viewing even in rough seas or at speed, the d-Series also feature the new Intellian dual Low Noise Block (LNB). Developed in its Irvine, California office and awaiting patent approval, the Intellian dual LNB technology can receive both Ku- and Ka-band DIRECTV programming signals, and deliver 35% more satellite TV programming and over 21 times more HD programming than other single antenna, marine-grade products on the market.
"The Intellian d-Series is a revolutionary new solution designed to address issues boaters have had viewing DIRECTV HDTV programming," said Eric Sung, president and CEO of Intellian Technologies. "Prior to its introduction, boaters were limited to a dual antenna Intellian solution or a third-party, repurposed home satellite product that weighs over 200 pounds. Our elegant, rugged and marinized d4 and d6 antennas are the ideal choice for DIRECTV subscribers looking to maximize their on-the-water viewing pleasure."
The d-Series features automatic satellite switching and a plug-and-play interface that allows connection to as many as six satellite receivers. FCC and CE approved, the d-Series, like all Intellian marine TV antenna solutions, meets the company's extremely high environmental testing standards. With a simple, elegant design and compact size, the perfectly balanced d-Series platform also minimizes components and cabling, thus increasing reliability, and making installation and maintenance easier than other solutions on the market. The d4 has a 17.7-inch antenna dish, weighs 25.5 pounds and is housed in a 21.3-inch high dome with a 19.7-inch diameter. The d6 has a 23.6-inch dish, weighs 44 pounds and has a 28.3- by 27.5-inch dome. The Intellian d-Series antenna systems are designed to operate in +/- 25-degree rolls and +/- 15-degree pitches at 45-degrees per second. Operating as low as negative 5 to 130-degrees Fahrenheit, the Intellian d-Series HD antennas are IPx6 rated, shock and vibration proof, and protected by a 2-year parts and 1-year labor limited warranty.
