New generation of antennas includes HD on DIRECTV for high quality viewing in American waters
Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2014 - Cobham SATCOM is showing its all-new Sea Tel range of maritime Satellite TV systems at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2014 - Electronics Pavilion, booth 368-370. Developed from the ground up, the new generation of Sea Tel Satellite TV is designed to provide reliable, high quality entertainment anywhere in the world, with two antennas specifically aimed at receiving HD content in the Americas.
The Sea Tel 100 TVHD and Sea Tel 120 TVHD are advanced 3-axis Ku/Ka dual band antennas, capable of receiving Ku- and Ka-band signals from three satellites simultaneously, giving full access to DIRECTV HD programming. The Sea Tel 80 TV, Sea Tel 100 TV and Sea Tel 120 TV are advanced 3-axis Ku-band antennas all featuring an innovative programmable worldwide LNB and multi polarisation, making them truly global. All five new antennas feature tried and tested electronics, ensuring straightforward installation, setup and daily operation.
Sea Tel Satellite TV antennas are designed, built and tested for reliable operation at sea. Continuing the focus on performance in Cobham SATCOM's Sea Tel and SAILOR VSAT and FleetBroadband satellite communication antenna systems, the new generation of Sea Tel Satellite TV antennas features RF capabilities that exceed all other antennas in the field today. The proven legacy and rigorous in-house and at-sea testing ensures that Sea Tel Satellite TV antennas live up to the high standards of quality and reliability users expect from Cobham SATCOM.
Ease of installation, operation and maintenance is a key development criteria for the new generation of Sea Tel Satellite TV. The radomes offer flexible cable installation with centre as well as side access, so installers can choose the cable lead-in that suits them best. They also feature a large service hatch to ensures fast and efficient installations and easy access for maintenance.
