i5 All-Americas TV Antenna System & SWM-30 Kit
i5 All-Americas TV Antenna System
The i5 is a significant addition to Intellian's TVRO product lineup and has also created another size category for marine satellite TV systems. The unique form factor is directly addressing the needs of offshore cruising vessels ranging from 40-60' in length.
The radome diameter of the i5 is 61cm (24") and it delivers extended coverage with a compact size. Intellian's signature iQ2 technology delivers quicker and quieter signal tracking and simple installation for the ultimate customer experience. The system's Wi-Fi enabled antenna control unit (ACU), provides the option to manage the system wirelessly via PC or Mobile Device, using Intellian's graphically intuitive control application, Aptus.
Just the Right Fit
The i5 is the world's first 20" satellite TV antenna purpose-built for offshore cruising vessels in the 40-60' range. Its performance enables reception of TV service throughout the Bahamas, Caribbean, and Mexico, while its size is better suited for vessels under 60' in length.
Simple & Easy Installation
With a single cable to connect the antenna and the ACU, the i5 system is quick and easy to install. Our intuitive ACU features a front panel display with functional keys and requires minimal setup so you can begin to enjoy TV programs in no time.
Quicker & Quieter
Intellian's patented iQ2 technology delivers the best user experience available on the market today. An advanced signal searching algorithm acquires the satellite 4-5 times faster than conventional methods. Intelligent, real-time beam analysis holds the signal and reduces overall motor movement by up to 80%, eliminating annoying background noise while at anchor or in the slip.
The i5 includes a built-in GPS, which facilitates an easier installation by eliminating the need to integrate with the vessel's system. Additionally, the GPS enables faster signal acquisition and improves overall tracking performance.
Standard All Americas LNB
The i5 is built to cruise offshore throughout the Americas. For this reason, it comes standard with Intellian's own All America's LNB, meaning users will not have to swap LNBs when sailing between regions.
Wireless Control via Aptus
Built-in Wi-Fi enables the ACU to be wirelessly managed and controlled via Aptus PC or Mobile, Intellian's graphical antenna control software. Aptus user-friendly displays vital performance metrics in a graphical format that simplifies operation. It even includes an auto diagnostic function designed to help solve problems quickly should they arise. The Aptus Mobile application is available in the Apple Store and through Google Play.
Occasionally satellite TV service providers make unannounced changes to their network that cause outages for marine users who do not receive regularly scheduled updates via their at-home dish. Aptus Mobile automatically checks for these updates, enabling users to stay current with any changes through a simple mobile app process.
Tune in to your favorite HDTV channels
Intellian's i5 receives HD channels from any Ku- band TV service. Enjoy HD programming whether cruising in the US, Mexico, or the Caribbean.
