Intellian i5 Marine Satellite TV System (B4-509AA)
Cruising vessels in the 40-60ft size class have always faced a dilemma between function and form. Standard 45cm (18") antennas fit the aesthetic of the vessel well, but are not powerful enough to provide coverage that matches the vessel's own cruising range. Until now the only alternative has been to step up in size significantly to the 60cm (24") option. While this certainly provides the coverage needed to receive signal in offshore destinations, such as the Bahamas and Caribbean, a system that large is simply not an option for most vessels.
The i5 fills this gap, providing the performance needed for offshore cruisers in a form factor that matches the lines of the vessel.
In the age of mobile devices, it is nice to have an app for everything. Intellian pioneered this in the world of marine satellite antennas with Aptus, our Mobile and PC remote antenna control software. All Intellian ACUs have built in Wi-Fi allowing users to manage and control all aspects of our systems from the palm of their hand. Aptus features auto diagnostics, instant firmware upgrades and a host of other features designed to make operation of our antennas quick and easy.
Just the Right Fit
The i5 is the world’s first 21” satellite TV designed for cruising vessels who require exceptional TV service throughout the US, Bahamas, Caribbean, and Mexico. The antenna is purpose built to provide just the right fit for vessels 40 to 60 feet.
Quicker & Quieter
Intellian’s patented iQ2technology 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Simple Network Update Process
Easily respond to satellite TV service network changes that may cause outages. Aptus Mobile automatically checks for these updates, enabling users to stay current with any changes through a simple mobile app process.
Tune in your favorite HDTV channels
Intellian’s i5 recieves HD channels from any Ku- band TV service. Enjoy HD programming whether cruising in the US, Mexico or the Caribbean.
