Intellian i3 Satellite TV System


The Intellian i3 marine satellite HD TV antenna system comes with an ACU or Antenna Control Unit that accurately tracks satellites in areas of moderate reception. Available for Direct TV, Dish Network, Express Vu and linear LNB, which means it can be used worldwide. This is the simplest way to put satellite TV on your boat, standard reception or HD for Dish Network. For HD reception, a Tri-Sat switch is required.

Intellian i3® Overview
The Intellian i3 provides superior tracking performance and efficiency than those antenna systems in the similar size. With its stylish dome, the i3 just ideally brings a perfect fit for boats over 25 feet. The i3 brings the boaters excitement and variety of satellite TV programs while the vessels are traveling around the coastal or blue water.
Plus, the boaters will never have to compromise on reception or quality because the i3 offers the highest signal strength available along with its patent pending innovations in Wide Range Search (WRS) and Dynamic Beam Tilting (DBT) technologies. Therefore, the i3 can always offer the most precision tracking capabilities and superior satellite signal receptions while the vessel is cruising at high speed or in the rough sea conditions.
The most incredible innovation design of i3 is to have the integrated smart HD and TriSat modules in its antenna control unit (ACU) which allows the boaters to access their favorite HDTV channels from DirecTV, Dish Network and ExpressVu freely just like they are used to do at home.
In addition, the i3 brings you trouble-free installation and operation with its single cable design between the antenna and the control unit. Not to mention more, Intellian i3 has a built-in GPS system to enhance satellite acquisition time and accuracy.
