NASHUA, N.H., Feb. 17 - Raymarine, the world leader in marine electronics, today announced that the company is launching a satellite television system for boaters that will give them access to high-quality satellite television while at sea.
The Raymarine 45 STV will bring the hottest shows, biggest movies and most anticipated sporting events, all in crisp digital quality picture and sound, to your boat. On the open seas or at the dock, the 45 STV automatically identifies, acquires and tracks compatible signals from all digital video broadcast (DVB) satellites.
Equipped with innovative technologies such as DBT (Dynamic Beam Tilting) and WRS (Wide Range Search), the System has the ability to track satellite signals and conduct instantaneous search and location of nearby satellites while in motion, ensuring that the most reliable link is maintained. In addition, the aesthetics of the System are just as appealing as its technological capabilities. Encased in an attractive, all-white dome design, the 45 STV is a perfect complement to boats of all sizes and types. The dome is now available in 45cm version, with a 60 cm product to be available by the end of 2005. The Raymarine System also allows boaters who already are equipped with Raymarine technology one consistent look with which to outfit their vessel.
"Raymarine has a long tradition of providing its customers with the technologies they need to make their boating experience as pleasurable as possible. Today, that means outfitting their vessels with the same entertainment resources they have in their homes," said Terry Carlson, President of Raymarine. "The introduction of Raymarine's new Satellite TV System reflects our vision of being the premium brand for every marine electronics need. Now, consumers are able to rely upon the Raymarine brand to satisfy the highest demands for both navigational and entertainment capabilities."
