Patented antenna technology
The TracVision A7 achieves its ultra-low-profile look and superior performance by using KVH’s patented hybrid phased-array antenna technology. Within the rugged housing lies a flat panel antenna capable of tracking DIRECTV’s satellites 22,500 miles above the equator, whether you’re cruising down the interstate or circling the parking lot looking for a space. Ultra-quiet, GPSenhanced, and equipped with advanced tracking software, TracVision A7 assures you of rapid satellite acquisition, a crystal-clear picture, and the outstanding reliability KVH is known for worldwide.
TracVision A7 includes a range of new features, including:
- in-motion support for local channels within the customers home designated market area (DMA) where available;
- exclusive, all-new 12V mobile receiver for DIRECTV service with GPS interface and onscreen messaging;
- integrated GPS, whisper-quiet motors, and superior reliability;
- multi-satellite capability allowing the antenna to switch among three DIRECTV satellites for an even broader selection of programming;
- enhanced tracking and signal recovery;
- a choice of high-gloss black or silver domes with automotive-grade finish; and
- new, easier installation options for a wider variety of vehicles.
The TracVision A7 uses KVHs patented hybrid phased-array antenna technology to offer the lowest profile in-motion satellite TV available and exclusive mobile access to local TV channels in areas served by DIRECTVs local programming broadcasts. Travelers will be able to watch the same network shows, news coverage, and sports that they enjoy at home, anywhere they travel within their home DMA. Once the vehicle travels outside the DMA, the TracVision A7s integrated GPS and 12V receiver automatically turn off the local channels in compliance with broadcast regulations while leaving DIRECTVs TOTAL CHOICE(R) MOBILE package of national channels and commercial-free music from XM Satellite Radio available for on-the-go entertainment.
