TERK TECHNOLOGIES OFFERS THE IDEAL HDTV ANTENNA FOR EVERY INSTALLATION REQUIREMENT
— Comprehensive HDTV Antenna Line Offers Consumers High-Performance Solutions For Unlimited Access to Free Local HD Programming —
Commack, NY, January 8, 2004 — As the leader in HDTV antenna design, TERK Technologies Corp. is committed to providing consumers with the ideal HDTV antenna for every location and installation situation. To meet the needs of the growing number of HDTV viewers, TERK has expanded its HDTV antenna lineup to include a number of new, high-performance antennas that offer exceptional performance and total installation flexibility.
Featuring expertly engineered components, innovative design and industry-leading reception capabilities, TERK’s HDTV antennas assure that viewers will receive the maximum amount of local HDTV channels, with the best-possible, full high-definition resolution.
“TERK has long been on a mission to ensure that its customers get top performance from their home entertainment systems,” said Randall Rosenbaum, Product Manager, TERK Technologies. “With the expansion of TERK’s HDTV antenna line, it’s now easier than ever for viewers to enjoy free, local HD broadcasts — the way they were meant to be experienced. Satellite and cable HD providers often broadcast HDTV with lower resolution than the format can deliver. Conversely, TERK HDTV antennas open the world of free, local HD broadcasts to all HD display owners, with full-resolution, HDTV picture and sound quality.”
Here’s an overview of TERK’s high-performance HDTV antenna lineup:
HDTVi: Advanced-Technology Indoor Antenna With Full UHF and VHF Reception Capability
Winner of an Innovations 2004 Design and Engineering Award, the new HDTVi is the company’s first-ever indoor HDTV antenna. The stylish, high-performance HDTVi (SRP: $39.99) is the only indoor HDTV antenna designed to receive both UHF and VHF signals (channels 2 — 69), to provide reception of all local HDTV broadcasts in full resolution. Exceptional in appearance as well as performance, with curved, tapering, polished aluminum antenna elements mounted in a slim, silver-finish base, the HDTVi is easy to install atop or near a TV set, and brings all the extraordinary image quality and viewing excitement to a wider range of consumers than ever before.
TV38, TV36 and TV32: HDTV Antennas for Every Outdoor Application
TERK recently introduced three high-performance, multi-element outdoor HDTV antennas, designed to receive HDTV signals from mid- or long-range distances. All are made of high-tensile-strength aluminum and coated with a weatherproof polymer finish for long-term durability even under the most severe conditions of extreme winds and ice loading, and are supplied with mounting kits and masts to accommodate virtually any installation.
The TV38 is a large-directional outdoor antenna designed to capture UHF and VHF HDTV signals, as well as FM broadcasts, from long ranges. The TV38 (SRP: $199.99) features a 43-element, double-boom design for unsurpassed HDTV reception performance.
The TV36 is a 33 element, medium-directional, UHF/VHF/FM antenna that is ideal for mid-range reception with a clear line-of-sight to the signal tower. (SRP: $129.99.)
TERK’s TV32 (SRP: $99.99) is a small-directional 13 element, UHF antenna with a four-bay bow-tie design that delivers outstanding UHF-only HDTV reception performance in suburban areas.
TV55: The Ultimate Indoor/Outdoor Antenna
The slim design and weatherproof construction of TERK’s TV55 enables it to be located either indoors or outdoors, and provides outstanding HDTV reception. It can be unobtrusively installed under the eaves of a roof, on a windowsill, on an outside wall, as a rooftop antenna or in a variety of indoor locations. The TV55 (SRP: $99.99) features a compact, yet high-gain helical coil element, along with an ultra-low-noise Dual Mode amplifier, to deliver clear, powerful HDTV signals.
TV44 and TV42: Convenient Satellite Dish-Mount Antennas
TERK’s TV44 and TV42 antennas can be mounted directly onto a satellite dish using no tools, making it easier than ever for satellite TV subscribers to add free local HDTV and standard broadcast TV reception capability to their home entertainment systems. The TV44 is designed for mounting on
18-inch by 20-to-24-inch multi-satellite dishes, while the TV42 installs on any 18-inch dish.
The TV44 and TV42 both feature built-in, high-gain amplifiers that require no additional power supply, to deliver powerful VHF, UHF and HDTV reception, and include a built-in diplexer that allows feeding both satellite and local signals to the home via a single cable to simplify installation. The TV44 carries a suggested retail price of $79.99, and the TV42 is available at a suggested retail price of $49.99.
