App to control sat-TV antenna

Intellian has launched an iOS app which allows smartphone or tablet users to remotely control the s80HD WorldView Satellite Television antenna.

Once downloaded from the Apple App Store, it gives access to the list of available satellites by region. Users can thus check the parameters of each satellite and switch to the correct satellite for their region. They can also download the latest antenna firmware and library to update the antenna directly from the iOS App.

Intellian’s s80HD WorldView antenna is a dual band antenna system. It can simultaneously receive two Ka-band and one Ku-band satellite signals for DIRECTV configuration. It incorporates a module which automatically switches to the corresponding polarisation and local frequency. Intellian says that the WorldView Trio LNB system enables reception of worldwide Ku-band satellites along with the DIRECTV channels without requiring LNBs to be swapped out or re-wiring the system.

The new iOS app allows iPhone or iPad users to control the s80HD WorldView wirelessly via the unit’s built-in Wi-Fi network.

The app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store by searching “s80HD”, or by using the link
