Lower price point TV antenna that delivers free HDTV
BURLINGTON, Iowa – (March 5, 2013) – Winegard Company, a leader and pioneer in the design and manufacture of mobile TV reception products, has announced its introduction of the RAYZAR™ Amplified Portable Indoor HD antenna. This innovative, new amplified version of the RAYZAR over-the-air antenna is ideal for camping, recreational vehicles and over-the-road trucking, as well as other outdoor activities including boating, tailgating and more. It’s perfect for receiving local broadcast channels from up to 50 miles away and requires no assembly or permanent installation.
With the RAYZAR Amped, consumers can get all the top-rated broadcast TV shows for free anywhere in the US. The high definition, near Blu-ray® quality picture is the best currently available.
This razor-thin multi-directional amplified antenna is the most advanced dual band (VHF/UHF) consumer antenna on the market today. It weighs in at just over 2 ounces, is .002 in. thick, measures just 12 in. by 13 in. and receives all local HD broadcast signals.
"We've designed the RAYZAR Amped as a razor-thin, flexible and feather light broadcast antenna that is a powerhouse at delivering free TV for those who enjoy the mobile lifestyle," said Winegard National Sales Manager Aaron Engberg.
“The Amped is one of very few indoor dual band antennas on the market, which means consumers don’t have to worry about missing out on a major network that other UHF indoor antennas may experience. Designed with our revolutionary Clear Circuit Technology™, the embedded amplifier is able to amplify 100 percent of the signal at the element to maximize channel reception and minimize pixelation and dropouts for the best viewing experience possible.”
That groundbreaking amplifier technology translates to crystal clear HDTV channel reception in a crowded signal environment with no dropping of signals, no matter where you are located. Since the amplifier is positioned closer to the antenna structure, the TV signal is effectively maximized, something Winegard founder John Winegard developed nearly 60 years ago.
The RAYZAR Amped picks up free TV from all the major local broadcast networks, such as ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and PBS, plus additional networks like Qubo, ION, The CW, Universal Sports and more, including local and regional weather and sports that paid programming may not provide.
The antenna is black on one side and white on the other to match any décor, and is easy to set up. Simply connect the coaxial cable to your digital HDTV, position the antenna wherever signal is strongest, plug in the USB power cable with 110V or 12V adapter, and run a channel scan.
All RAYZAR HDTV antennas are made in the USA and are available at most RV dealerships and at Winegard.com.
