With its rugged, reliable and durable design, the Intellian i4/i4P provides the most outstanding performance to stay locked in. It connects boaters to the premium satellite TV entertainment they want while vessels are cruising at high speed or in rough sea conditions. The i4/i4P's stylish and polished dome design makes it perfect for boats over 50 feet.

With its patent pending innovations in Wide Range Search (WRS) and Dynamic Beam Tilting (DBT) technologies, the i4/i4P can achieve the most precise tracking performance and highest signal reception without the need of a fragile or superfluous motion sensor. An embedded GPS system can speed up satellite search and acquisition time.

The revolutionary design feature of the i4/i4P is that it has the intelligent built-in HD and TriSat modules in its control unit. This offers boaters High Definition satellite TV broadcasts from leading satellite TV service providers without any extra conversion tools and cable wiring. With Intellian MIM, boaters can enjoy flipping channels through automatic satellite switching just like a home system. See the installation guide of DISH Network MIM for further details.

For easy and flexible installation and operation, the i4/i4P supports standard dual and quad IRD connections with its single cable design between the antenna and the antenna control unit (ACU). This simple and powerful system is manufactured in compliance with the most rigorous quality verification of ISO 9001:2001.

In addition, the i4P provides the embedded Auto Skew Angle Control system to maintain the optimal signal strength and increase the quality of satellite receptions in weak satellite signal coverage area.
