MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Oct. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) awarded KVH Industries (Nasdaq:KVHI) its prestigious "Best Product Award" in two categories, communications and entertainment, at its annual convention in Orlando, Florida last week. The KVH TracVision ® HD7 won the award for "Best Entertainment Product" of the year, and the KVH TracPhone ® V3 won the award for "Best Communications Product." The NMEA is the global marine electronics industry's premier trade association and is made up of more than 600 companies including manufacturers, dealers, and boat builders. This is the 14 th consecutive year that KVH has won a best product award from the NMEA.
"We are thrilled to have won two awards at this year's NMEA Convention," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH's CEO. "It's always gratifying to us to win the recognition of our industry partners. There are no better judges for the real performance of marine electronics products than the knowledgeable NMEA dealers who are actually out there installing and supporting the equipment on a daily basis. KVH invests a lot in training and supporting our global distribution channel to assure our products are professionally installed and supported, which helps us to deliver the best possible experience for our customers."
The TracVision HD7, which won the award for "Best Entertainment Product," is a stabilized satellite antenna that will work throughout the Americas to deliver the ultimate in both standard- and high-definition TV. The first product able to simultaneously track and deliver transmissions from both Ku-band and Ka-band satellites, the TracVision HD7 has become the favorite solution for boaters who want to watch high-definition programming from the popular DIRECTV ® service on their boats. To make this innovative product even more versatile, KVH invented the Tri-Americas ® LNB that enables the antenna to work with all of the popular satellite TV services throughout North and South America."The TracVision HD7 is our first choice for customers who want the ultimate in high-definition TV," said Todd Tally, Sales Manager of Atlantic Marine Electronics, one of KVH's leading dealers in North America. "Even in rough sea conditions, it simultaneously tracks DIRECTV's Ku- and Ka-band satellites and provides a no-fuss, no-hassle user experience for our customers, exactly like they enjoy at home. We find the system to be extremely reliable and easy to install, and KVH's technical support team is fantastic. The TracVision HD7 is by far the best TV antenna I've seen in the 15+ years I've been in the marine electronics business."
