Intellian i5 Satellite TV Antenna Intell-i5

A New Size Category, the Intellian i5 Satellite TV Antenna Intell-i5 53.5cm (21 inch) Satellite TV system is the world’s first marine satellite antenna system purpose built for offshore cruising vessels 12m (35ft) to 18m (60ft) in length. With performance similar to most 60cm (24 inch) systems, the i5 delivers quality signal reception throughout many of the world’s popular cruising destinations in a small, efficient form factor that matches the aesthetic of vessels in this size class.

Intellian i5 Satellite TV Antenna Intell-i5 Highlights

  • i5 is standard equipped with All Americas LNB for extended cruising without swapping components along the way
  • Built-in GPS enables faster signal acquisition
  • Auto satellite switching function from your remote control
  • 50° per second turn rate ensures signal tracking at high speeds and in rough seas
  • Smaller form factor with stronger performance
  • Fast and easy installation, no external compass or rate sensors required
  • Compatible with leading satellite TV service providers around the world
  • HD compatible for all Ku-band services


Standard All Americas LNB

The Intellian i5 model arrives standard equipped with Intellian’s own All Americas LNB. This convenient feature prevents cruisers from having to climb the mast and swap out components as they sail from one coverage zone to another. That it is included in the standard model is also a tremendous value over alternative solutions. Spend more time enjoying the voyage without missing anything along the way.

A New Size Category

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 a signal in offshore destinations, such as the Bahamas and the Caribbean, a system that large is simply not an option for most vessels. The Intellian i5 Satellite TV Antenna Intell-i5 fills this gap, providing the performance needed for offshore cruisers in a form factor that matches the lines of the vessel.

Multiple Interfaces

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, their Mobile and PC remote antenna control software. All Intellian ACUs have built-in Wi-Fi allowing users to manage and control all aspects of their solutions from the palm of their hand. Aptus features auto diagnostics, instant firmware upgrades, and a host of other features designed to make the operation of the antennas quick and easy.

Multiple Interfaces

One of a Kind

  • Only 20″ system on the market today
  • performs like most 24″ systems currently offered

Smaller form factor

  • 61cm (24 inch) antenna radome diameter
  • Antenna weighs less than 17.3 kg (38 pounds)

Standard All Americas Package

  • Outstanding performance throughout the Americas
  • No need to swap out antenna components while cruising between service regions
  • No upcharge for improved functionality

Multiple Receiver Capability

  • Multiple receivers and TVs can be connected using a Multi-Switch or the Intellian MIM (Multi-Satellite Interface Module)
  • Using the MIM a master receiver can be selected to control the target satellite
  • In North America, when using Dish or Bell TV, a MIM is required, enabling automatic satellite switching from your remote control just like at home

Fast & Easy Installation

  • Built-in GPS means no need to integrate shipboard sensors
  • Preloaded Global Satellite Library ensures setup is merely a few button taps. Average activation time is 25 minutes

iQ²: Quick&Quiet℠ Technology

  • iQ² Technology allows you to tune in quickly, maintain a solid signal lock, and enjoy your favorite TV programming in quiet comfort
  • The Wide Range Search (WRS) Algorithm locks onto the satellite signal 4-5 times faster than conventional approaches
  • Dynamic Beam Tilting (DBT) technology uses intelligent, real-time beam analysis to ensure superior signal quality while reducing overall motor motion by up to 80%, eliminating intrusive background noise

Antenna Control Unit

  • Intuitive controls and digital information display on the ACU front
  • Wireless automated updates and diagnostics via Aptus PC and Aptus Mobile
  • DC Out Port for easy power supply to the Intellian MIM or the Shaw Decoder Module

Three Year Global Warranty

  • Industry leading 3-year parts and workmanship guarantee with a 2-year labor warranty for all antenna systems, ensuring peace of mind with your hardware investment
  • The new warranty policy (3-year parts and 2-year labor) is only valid for products purchased after 1st, January 2017
