Small dimensions, low weight
The KVH TracVision TV3 is the successor of the legendary KVH TracVision M3. It has only 39 cm diameter and is 44 cm high. Compared to systems with the same antenna gain, these antennas are about 40% smaller in volume. Also the weight could be reduced to 8.2 kg. This means that this antenna can also be installed on smaller motorboats or sailing yachts.
Easy to install
The KVH TracVision TV3 is supplied with a control unit (TV-Hub B) and all installation material. The connection between the antenna and the control unit is only made with a coaxial cable (for voltage, data and 1 x RF signal). The control unit then only needs to be connected to the on-board voltage and to a digital satellite receiver.
Strong in performance
The KVH TracVision TV3 has the same performance or antenna gain as comparable systems with 45 cm mirror diameter. This gives you the same reception range as antennas with a diameter of 50 cm.

The KVH TracVision TV3 locates and acquires satellites automatically. This means that you can receive your favourite television channel from any of the new DVB®-compatible satellites (including DVB-S2®) in the comfort of your harbour or at anchor. With the KVH TracVision TV3 you can even receive it while you are travelling.
After switching on, the TracVision searches for the set satellite. After a positive identification has been carried out, all movements of the ship are compensated. Satellites are located with an accuracy of 0.1°. With the KVH TracVision TV3 the antenna is tracked with up to 30° per second during a turn. This is fast enough for all ships. This ensures uninterrupted reception.
Switching at the push of a button
The integrated DVB-S2® encoder always ensures unique satellite identification. DiSEqC (Digital Satellite Equipment Control) compatibility means that there is always automatic switching between two set satellites, such as HOTBIRD and ASTRA. With the KVH TracVision TV3, switching and programming of the system is also possible via PC, tablet or smartphone.
Hundreds of programs
Hundreds of channels are available via the satellites. It does not matter whether you are in the south of France, on the Balearic Islands or in northern Germany. The TracVision TV antennas guarantee uninterrupted reception in Europe*.
The KVH TracVision TV3 opens completely new entertainment perspectives for owners of smaller motor boats or sailing yachts.
* Reception in peripheral areas depends on transponder strength and atmospheric conditions.
