Antennas Direct Announces the Lacrosse HDTV Antenna - Antenna uses award winning designs that incorporate a streamlined profile.
June 23, 2005, Wildwood, MO * Engineers have long stated that the uglier the antenna the better it will perform. But as high-definition television (HDTV) becomes more popular, demand is growing for HDTV antennas that blend into the home design, while still reliably locking into the HDTV signals. Antennas Direct has introduced the new Lacrosse HDTV antenna to address that demand.
The Lacrosse is based upon remote sensing technology, previously available to the military. It is the first design to employ state of the art signal reception capabilities with a revolutionary design that will complement even the most discerning homeowner, according to Antennas Direct President Richard Schneider.
Schneider expects the Lacrosse antenna to be extremely popular in the suburban and urban markets, because it offers a sleek design, while still providing exceptional signal locking capabilities and eliminating the poor performance often found in widely available antennas.
â€œWe set out to create an antenna that would be visually unnoticeable to homeowners, but provide them with reliable and consistent reception for their HDTV setâ€ Schneider said. â€œThe Lacrosse antenna accomplishes that by making its presence known only through a clear, reliable picture in your living room.â€
Antennas Directâ€™s award winning DB2 and DB4 lines have quickly become the antennas of choice among home theater enthusiast and HDTV owners, looking for the most reliable reception. For the first time, that same industry leading performance is being offered with the non-intrusive, streamlined profile of the Lacrosse rooftop antenna.
The Lacrosse offers a max gain 10.8 dB; it is one of the strongest multi-directional antennas available and performs consistently across the entire UHF spectrum. It even works well in areas where HD transmitters are positioned in multiple directions. The antenna stands 14â€ tall x 20â€ wide and weighs only 6.8 lbs. The Lacrosse is optimized for frequency range between 400 and 850 MHz, which covers the majority of Digital TV channels. When the Lacrosse is made available to the public in August, it will come with a 90 day return policy and a lifetime warranty.
