i2 13" Marine Satellite TV Antenna, North America
Equipped with Intellian’s iQ² technologies, the i2 delivers stable, quiet, dependable performance in the smallest size antenna available.
The revolutionary i2 antenna makes satellite TV possible on smaller boats due to its compact size of just 13" and it's light weight of just 9.5 lb. With it's elevation range of 10 ° to 80°, the i2 offers greater range than competitive units, great news for travelers headed north or south.
The world’s most versatile 2-axis marine satellite TV antennas, Intellian® Satellite TV Antennas provide reliable TV reception for boats as small as 20', with exclusive, patented technologies to make watching TV onboard easier than you imagined possible. Advanced WRS Wide Range Search programming covers a wider range and locks on to a signal in seconds, four to five times faster than other models. Dynamic Beam Tilting holds onto the signal when you are under way or your boat moves, with superior technology, utilizing a sub-reflector rotating at 3,000rpm instead of rate sensors. The dish responds faster, even in the roughest conditions.
- High Performance: The Intellian i2 is the world's first high-performance, compact satellite TV system with an integrated HD module. This state-of-the-art functionality provides premium high-definition HD, when available, and standard SD programming broadcasts from satellite TV providers around the world.
- Automatic Satellite Switching: DISH (US) and Bell TV (Canada) users will benefit from using an Intellian MIM (Multi-Satellite Interface Module) . The Intellian MIM is required to facilitate automatic switching between satellites for these services, allowing boaters to enjoy changing channels with automatic satellite switching just like a home system. See the Intellian MIM product guide for further details.
- Multiple Receiver Capability: Multiple receivers and TVs can be connected using a Multi-Switch or the Intellian MIM (Multi-Satellite Interface Module). Using the MIM, a master receiver can be selected to control the target satellite. In North America, when using Dish or Bell TV, a MIM is required, enabling automatic satellite switching from your remote control just like at home.
- iQ² Quick&Quiet℠ Technology: iQ² Technology allows you to tune in quickly, maintain a solid signal lock, and enjoy your favorite TV programming in quiet comfort. The Wide Range Search (WRS) Algorithm delivers the fastest signal acquisition available anywhere. Dynamic Beam Tilting (DBT) technology uses intelligent, real-time beam analysis to ensure superior signal tracking while eliminating intrusive background noise experienced with conventional antennas.
- Interface to External NMEA 0183 GPS: Standard NMEA Interface allowing a vessel owner to use a separate GPS system further reducing initial search time.
- Three Year Global Warranty: Industry leading three-year parts and workmanship guarantee with a two-year labor warranty for all antenna systems, ensuring peace of mind with your hardware investment
