Learn About Internet and TV for Boats & Yachts at KVH Educational Seminars 5/14 and 5/20

As part of the Virtual Palm Beach International Boat Show, marine electronics leader KVH is presenting two free virtual educational seminars on the topics of bringing Internet and satellite TV to the boat. “Even though boaters can’t go to the Palm Beach show in person this year, the virtual webinars are a great way to get information from the top experts in marine electronics to help make their time on the water even more enjoyable with connectivity and entertainment onboard,” says Jim George, KVH’s senior director of global leisure sales.

The panelists for each seminar include marine electronics installers and manufacturers, technicians, and boat manufacturers, representing a wealth of expertise for answering the types of questions most often discussed during boat show season. Jim Fullilove, editor of Marine Electronics Journal, will be the moderator for the two seminars.

    I was impressed; Jim Fullilove asked good questions from the consumer point of view, and the result is a nice overall look at the state of boat WiFi, cell, and satellite communications with some pro installer tips. And anyone can watch it whenever they like on YouTube:


    Or along with many other webinars at the Virtual Palm Beach Boat Show (simple registration involved):
