Irvine, Calif. - Intellian Technologies, the world's technological leader in marine satellite antennas, announced today the Intellian DISH Network Multi-satellite Interface Module (MIM). Providing automatic and instant satellite switching between DISH Network's three satellites, the MIM offers DISH Network subscribers the same seamless television watching functionality on boats as they have at home. Changing channels on the DISH Network marine satellite TV antenna system requires the satellite receiver to switch between satellites. The new MIM from Intellian is the only solution that provides customers the ability to access all three DISH Network satellites automatically and replaces an active 4-port multi-switch for control of the DISH Network receivers. Providing total access to satellite broadcasts as fast as a user can change channels, the new MIM is compatible with Intellian's full line of i-series, Ku-band marine satellite antenna systems. The DISH Network Multi-satellite Interface Module from Intellian ensures boaters flawless and efficient access to all Dish Network entertainment.

The new DISH MIM from Intellian, the only marine satellite antenna manufacturer that offers boaters access to all High-Definition (HD) channels on DIRECTV, not only simplifies DISH Network viewing on the water, it makes it more reliable. The MIM replaces the DISH Pro and Pro+ multi-switch supplied with the DISH Network receiver and eliminates "check switch" and frustrating "search for signal" error codes. Unlike old-fashioned satellite antenna systems on the market, the Intellian MIM removes inconvenient manual satellite switching and provides variable master receiver selection so that multiple televisions can be viewed on a boat without interruption. The MIM supports HD programming, as well as receivers with integrated Digital Video Recorders (DVR) and DISH Network's exclusive single receiver with dual tuners for two televisions.

"Intellian's DISH Network MIM unit is the only solution on the market that provides boaters with instant and automatic satellite switching as they change channels," said Eric Sung, president and CEO, Intellian Technologies. "We are proud to consistently lead the marine antenna satellite market with cutting-edge solutions that offer boaters the greatest amount of freedom and access to the same entertainment performance on the water as they get at home."

The Intellian DISH Network MIM has outputs to connect to four receivers. If additional receivers are required, multiple MIM's can simply be connected together. Each unit features an RS-232 port to receive channel-switching commands from receivers faster and more intelligently than other technology on the market. The Intellian DISH Network MIM is protected by a 2-year parts and 1-year labor limited warranty.

Price & Availability: 
The Intellian Technologies DISH Network Multi-satellite Interface Module has a suggested retail price of US $265.00, and can be purchased through authorized Intellian Technologies dealers and distributors worldwide.
