KVH Makes it Easy for Boaters to Upgrade to TracVision HD7 with New Spring Promotion

MIDDLETOWN, RI – March 3, 2010 – KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) redefined marine entertainment with the introduction of the revolutionary new TracVision® HD7, the only compact maritime satellite TV antenna to simultaneously track three Ka- and Ku-band DIRECTV® satellites and offer a high-definition DIRECTV experience just like at home. Now, KVH is making it easy for loyal TracVision customers to upgrade to this ultimate HDTV solution while getting as much as $2,000 cash back when they trade in an older marine TracVision satellite TV system. The “Trade Up to HDTV†promotion lasts through June 30, 2010.

“It’s important to us to ensure that KVH products are always a great value for our customers,†says Jim George, KVH’s director of satellite sales. “An increasing number of boat owners want to enjoy the same DIRECTV HDTV on their boats that they have at home. Thanks to the TracVision HD7’s unique ability to track DIRECTV’s Ka-band and Ku-band satellites at the same time within a compact dome, we’re able to offer a solution to enjoy premier entertainment that less capable systems just can’t match. We’re extremely happy to show our longtime customers how much we appreciate their business by making it as easy and affordable as possible to trade up to the TracVision HD7. Plus, the offer runs straight through June 30, and who wouldn’t want to give their parent or spouse a new TracVision for Mother’s or Father’s Day?â€

KVH’s TracVision HD7 is a breakthrough in maritime satellite TV design. Its patent-pending TriADâ„¢ antenna technology simultaneously receives signals from all three primary DIRECTV satellites, tracks those satellites even as the boat cruises at high speeds and through rough seas, and offers a DIRECTV HD experience just like at home, including full support for Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) on boats. The TracVision HD7 also includes KVH’s new IP-enabled antenna control unit (ACU), which is equipped with an Ethernet connection for onboard networks, a built-in WiFi interface, and a USB port to make system setup and management as easy as opening a web browser and maintenance as simple as plugging in a USB thumb drive. For the most convenient connection to the TracVision HD7 satellite TV system, however, users simply download KVH’s free TracVision iPhone® application from Apple’s iTunes App Store and use it to check satellite TV signal strength, switch to secondary satellites, download and automatically install antenna software updates, and send information directly to KVH technical support.
