RaySat Introduces World's Thinnest In-Motion Satellite TV Antenna for Domestic Japan Automotive Market


Low-Profile, 40cm (16") diameter, 4cm (1.6") height antenna receives BS/CS satellite broadcasts in vehicle

LAS VEGAS, Dec. 28 / -- RaySat(TM), Inc., a leading provider of in-motion receive only and 2-way low profile satellite antennas, announces today the thinnest in-motion satellite TV antenna for use in Japan. The antenna is 40cm (16") in diameter and 4cm (1.6") in height, is circular polarized and enables reception of all SD (standard definition), Free-to-Air and Skyperfect TV channels in JSAT 110 west BS/CS satellites all over Japan and the HD (High Definition) channels in the southern part of Japan.

The antenna will work with existing mobile TV receivers available for DVB-S and DVB-T in Japan, and is capable of being installed on vehicles where people have already installed the receiver as well as new installations of antenna and receivers for OEM and aftermarket channels.

"This is another demonstration of our unique low-profile technology," said Yoel Gat, Chairman and CEO of RaySat. "The antenna is the first-of-its-kind to scan the elevation angle electronically. We believe this new technology will enable us to introduce low-cost, low profile antennas for other world markets, most notably the US domestic market."

RaySat has successfully demonstrated the product for major channels in Japan and expects general availability for sale in major Japanese automotive retailers toward the end of 2006. RaySat will exhibit the product in CES 2006.
