The Intellian i6 provides excellent commercial-grade performance and efficiency compared to antenna systems in similar size. The i6 is ideally designed for boats over 70'. Traditionally, bigger marine satellite antennas had cumbrous weight and complicated cable installation problems. Thanks to the i6’s single cable design and the vacuum-forming technology, the i6 has proved bigger can be lighter and simpler. With Intellian MIM, boaters can enjoy flipping channels through automatic satellite switching just like a home system.   With its patent-pending innovations in Wide Range Search (WRS) and Dynamic Beam Tilting (DBT) technologies, the i6 can always offer the most precision tracking capabilities and superior quality of satellite signal receptions in the extremely rough sea conditions. 

The most innovative design of the i6 is the integrated HD and TriSat modules in its control unit. This allows boaters the ability to access their favorite HDTV channels from leading satellite TV service providers easy just like they are used to do at home.

The i6 has a built-in GPS system which enhances the speed of satellite signals acquisitions.
