| What is the difference between Videosat and
Videosat Pty Ltd
has been supplying Australian Free to Air Satellite TV to remote areas
of Australia as well as to poor reception viewers since the first
launch of Aussat in 1985. General Manager of Videosat, Wally Shand,
has been aware of the need for a suitable solution to the problem
of variable and unreliable TV and radio reception for Australia's
Wandering Travellers. In 2001 Videosat developed and introduced its
Campersat range of products to Australia's growing Recreational Vehicle
(RV) industry. In 2002 Campersat was awarded "Most Innovative
Product of the Year" by the Caravan and Camping Industry Association
(CCIA). The CCIA Industry awards are designed to encourage excellence
within the industry; an independent panel judges the entrants.
