- German Engineering
- Fully Automatic operation
- Dependable fast pivoting head technology.
- Weather resistant construction.
- User-friendly controller.
- Compatible with ALL European receivers.
The Oyster Vision has Automatic dish retraction when engine started preventing damage caused by driving off with the Oyster dish still up.
The Oyster satellite system can be fitted in less than a day to the roof of any Motorhome, caravan or boat where enough space is avaliable.
The Oyster Vision can be supplied for DIY Fitting or we can install the system for you at either our Exmouth, Devon Fitting workshop and showroom or with our expert mobile engineers who will come to your door.
Oyster Vision satellite systems are guaranteed for 3 years making it an ideal addition for worry-free and comfortable traveling.
As long as there is a satellite signal the Oyster will find it within minutes. All fully automated and removing any requirement for messy, drawn out, all weather manual satellite aligning.
The Oyster Vision has a facility called LEM (Last Elevation Memory) which allows it to remember the elevation from the last time it was used and go back to it next time it is switched on, making the satellite search process quicker.
At only 15Kg for the 85cm dish it is designed to fit onto any caravan or motorhome and in the stowed position it will only add 220mm to your vehicle height.

The Oyster’s satellite dish can be permanently fitted on the roof of any leisure vehicle. Oyster’s microprocessors ensure that the picture and stereo sound remain fully tuned and crystal clear. When the system is switched off, the Oyster dish closes and stows itself out of harms way. All control electronics are incorporated in the Oyster receiver.
The slimline wedge shaped control unit for the Oyster Vision can be wall or table top mounted. This unique unit has a map of Europe with a number of zones marked, to start the system all that is needed is to press the appropriate zone button and the dish will erect and lock onto the required digital satellite. A DVB-compatible digital satellite receiver (ie DigiBox, available separately) is connected to the control unit which is used to select the choice of programme. This is a very simple and elegant system in operation.
The Oyster Vision is so user friendly, to pick up television channels in Europe all you need to do is:
- 1. Turn on your Television.
- 2. Turn on your Digital Receiver (Digibox) (available separately).
- 3. Turn on your Oyster Vision.
The control panel shows a map of Europe, divided into three zones, Northern, Central and Southern. Follow the 1-2-3 instructions and select the relevant zone for your location, the Oyster will automatically seek and lock onto the correct satellite for your receiver (DVB-compatible, i.e Digibox for British TV) all you do then is watch your favourite programmes.
